Beyoncé Knowles caught her fans off-guard on Sunday morning when she unexpectedly released a remix of her single Flawless. It's not just the surprise release of the track which has caused a stir – but rather a change in lyrics, which have been altered to address the now-infamous lift incident between her husband Jay Z and sister Solange Knowles.

"Of course sometimes s*** goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator," Beyoncé sings in the remix, which also features rapper Nicki Minaj. Elsewhere in the track, the star talks about both parties involved in the fight, singing, "My sister taught me how to speak my mind. My man make me feel so god damn fine."

Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange had been attending a Met Gala afterparty shortly before the incident took place, back in May. A leaked security camera video showed Solange lashing out at her brother-in-law, with Beyoncé watching from the side.

An official statement was later released. "At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different," it read. "We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."

Beyoncé and Jay Z, who are currently on tour together, have been the subject of split rumours recently. It has been reported that they are staying in separate hotels while on their On The Run world tour, and that Beyoncé has been house-hunting in New York City for an apartment to live in without her rapper husband.

Rather than directly respond to stories about her marriage, the mum-of-one is letting her photos do the talking.Her Instagram page has a number of sweet snapshots illustrating her happy home life, including a recent photo that shows Jay Z carrying the couple’s daughter Blue Ivy, captioned, "My favourite hue is Jay Z Blue."
