UPDATED 8/5, 9:45 p.m. ET: Just days after unleashing her four-song remix EP, Beyoncé returned with “Break My Soul (The Queens Remix)” featuring Madonna.
The new version pays homage to the Queen of Pop’s 1990 hit “Vogue,” which name drops 16 icons from Hollywood’s Golden Age; however, the “Queen Remix” replaces the names with other legends from different eras: Madonna, Rihanna, Aaliyah, Santigold, Grace Jones, Missy Elliott, Lauryn Hill, Nicki Minaj, and Janet Jackson are mentioned in the cut, along with Beyoncé’s sister, Solange Knowles, and fellow Destiny’s Child members, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
The “Queen Remix” marks the artists’ first official collaboration, though Bey did appear in Madonna’s 2015 video for “Bitch I’m Madonna. The remix is available now for $1.29 at Bey’s online store.

As Renaissance week continues, Beyoncé released a 4-pack EP consisting of different remixes of her song “Break My Soul,” including ones featuring Will.i.am, Honey Dijon, Terry Hunter, and Nita Aviance.
Each new iteration of “Break My Soul” adds a different dance music twist to the already extremely popular single. Will.i.am’s version offers a beat switch midway through the track, with Bey’s lyrics woven in and out with new sonic inflections. Honey Dijon’s take on “Break My Soul” puts the new production at center stage.
Honey Dijon previously opened up about working on the Renaissance tracks “Cozy” and “Alien Superstar,” writing, “Thank you @beyonce for this incredible moment. Meeting and working with you on Renaissance has been life changing. Your elegance, beauty, talent, work ethic, and vision is truly inspirational.”
After not even a week of being out, Renaissance has already made huge waves throughout the house music community. The album is projected to earn around 275,000 and 315,000 equivalent album units, as Hits Daily Double reported. This would land Beyoncé her seventh consecutive No. 1 album. Leading up to the new album, she also teased that “Act I” of Renaissance only marks the beginning of a three part series, which implies two more acts could be on the way soon.
