Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj stole the show at last Tuesday’s TIDAL X charity concert in Brooklyn with their live debut of “Feeling Myself” — and now Bey has shared a fun snippet of the two at the show’s rehearsal.

The black-and-white clip shows Minaj and Beyoncé on the Barclays Center stage, with a voiceover from Beyoncé, presumably recorded at the event, singing a modified version of Prince’s “Darling Nikki.” “I met a girl named Nicki / I guess you can say she was the rap queen,” Beyoncé sings, outlining the origins of her collaborations with Nicki. “I met her in the studio lobby but her booty looked bigger in the magazines / She said ‘B, would you jump on this song of mine?’ / How could I resist when I heard little Nicki rhyme.”

Check out the clip below.
