PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.


For the last two days we've all been speculating about what Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange's next moves will be in the wake of THAT ELEVATOR INCIDENT and the answer is probably... nothing. Unless you count subtle -- or not so subtle -- messages via Beyoncé's recent Instagram curation. But while we continue to obsess over the entire Knowles-Carter tribe's every move, one of our favorite rabble-rousers, M.I.A., has made a move of her own: she released a very opportune remix of Bey's "***Flawless."

In this version, the song gets M.I.A.'s signature frenetic party vibes treatment with loads of drum machines, trap beats and mash-up lyrics from Beyoncé's 2008 hit, "Diva." The artist tweeted the song out earlier this morning with an emoji showing a man and a woman holding hands and the words "M 50 | W 50."

Take a listen to the remix, above.
