Beyoncé Rewrites Madonna’s Vogue Rap For Iconic New Version Of Break My Soul

On Friday night, she unveiled the “Queens remix” of her hit Break My Soul, which credits none other than Madonna as a featured artist.

The new version of Break My Soul heavily interpolates the Queen of Pop’s signature hit Vogue, including a rewritten version of the iconic Vogue “rap”.

And while the original track paid homage to Hollywood stars like Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, James Dean, Grace Kelly and Bette Davis, Beyoncé has reinvented the rap as a tribute to her Black peers in the music industry, as well as a celebration of those who helped pave the way for her.

After shouting out “Queen Mother Madonna”, Bey says:

Rosetta Tharpe, Satigold

Bessie Smith, Nina Simone

Betty Davis, Solange Knowles

Badu, Lizzo, Kelly Rowl’

Lauryn Hill, Roberta Flack

Toni, Janet, Tierra Whack

Missy, Diana, Grace Jones

Aretha, Anita, Grace Jones

Helen Folasade Adu, Jilly from Philly, I love you, boo

Don’t just stand there, get in to it

Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it

She also mentions her protégées, Chloe X Halle, and her Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams.
