Minaj-Beyonce-thumbAs you’ve probably heard by now, Beyonce and Nikki Minaj released a new music video yesterday, and it’s all kinds of incredible.

Problem is, it’s only available on Jay-Z’s music streaming service Tidal, meaning that you’re going to be hard pressed to find it anywhere on the web. Rubbish, eh?

Luckily for you, we’ve decided to take you on a GIF-guided journey of everything you’re missing out on.

So without further ado, here’s the story behind Nicki Minaj’s new single ‘Feeling Myself’…


 

Beyonce and Nicki’s car has broken down on the outskirts of Coachella. Minaj, probably knackered after a long drive, looks thoroughly fed up.

Beyonce won’t stop changing the radio station, you see. She keeps opening and closing the window for no reason. She hasn’t even mentioned petrol money yet. Beyonce has been a proper nightmare.

This is the last thing Nicki needs.

Nobody’s pulling over, so they figure it might be time to switch up tactics. Naturally, they reach for the pool toys and leotards. Beyonce falls asleep, because of course that’s something she would do because that’s helpful isn’t it, and the plan fails.

Beyonce’s had enough of waiting, and bravely decides to stand in the middle of the road, flailing her arms madly, bringing traffic to a standstill. It works. They’re on their way! Huzzah!

Aaaaaaaand they’ve made it! They rock up at their luxury accomodation, away from all of the riff-raff pictured below.

They’re happy about that, obviously. Nicki decides to celebrate with a well-deserved twerking session, while Beyonce takes some selfies in the world’s most uncomfortable bath.

It’s going to be a long night of partying, so Nicki decides to whip up some food for the two of them. She struggles to balance under the sheer strength of her stirring. What is that anyway? It looks like wet flour. That’s not food, Nicki.

So Nicki’s trying to get ready, right, but Beyonce won’t fuck off. She just won’t. She keeps putting her head on Nicki’s shoulder and doing a Woody Woodpecker impression. It’s not even very good.

Nicki’s had enough, and she pops off round her mates’ house for a little stress-relieving dance routine.

And not to be outdone, Beyonce dons her favourite bucket hat and pops out to meet her friend who’s grinding on a signpost for some inexplicable reason.

And that’s all they needed: a little bit of space, and now they’re back to being best mates; mates who eat burgers together. Really awkwardly.

We may have got the story wrong, of course – we were a bit distracted. Probably best to go and get Tidal if you want the whole thing, to be honest.
