The superstar shouts out Janet Jackson, Aaliyah, Rihanna, and more on the new track.

Beyoncé's latest "Break My Soul" remix is an ode to some of the most iconic women in music.

The new track, dubbed "The Queens Remix" sees Bey rework "Break My Soul" with new lyrics and while sampling one of Madonna's most popular songs, "Vogue". During the song, Bey shouts out some of her favorite female artists of past and present in the same cadence that Madonna shouted out her favorite celebrities and fashion designers in the 1990 hit.

"Rosetta Tharpe, Santigold, Bessie Smith, Nina Simone, Betty Davis, Solange Knowles
Badu, Lizzo, Kelly Rowl'," chimes Bey on the song. "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."

The superstar also shows love to her protégés Chloe x Halle and the late R&B star Aaliyah, as well as Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. She also takes time to highlight her favorite fashion houses including Balenciaga, Balmain, Telfar and Mugler, all of who she's worn multiple times throughout her career.

See the full lyrics for the new remix, below.

[Intro: Beyoncé, Big Freedia, Beyoncé & Madonna]
Ooh, la, la
Ooh, la, la, la, la

Ooh, la, la, la, la
I, mother of my house, vow, to keep my f- mouth to myself (La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la)
You make me smile, I vow to love thy hater
I believe in you, you can do it
Release ya anger, release ya mind
Release ya job, release the time
Release ya trade, release the stress
Release the love, forget the rest

You can do it
Release, repressed, supressed, regressed, redirect all that anger (To me)
And give it to me (To me), give it to me (to me), give it to me
Everybody (Yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka)
Everybody (Yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka)

I'm built for this, I can take it (Everybody)
I can take it, you can do it
[Verse 1: Beyoncé, Madonna]
Now, I just fell in love
And I just quit my job (Move to the music)
I'm gonna find new drive
Damn, they work me so damn hard
Work by nine
Then off past five
And they work my nerves
That's why I cannot sleep at night (You know you can do it)

[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]
I'm lookin' for motivation (You motivate me)
I'm lookin' for a new foundation, yeah (Thank you)
And I'm on that new vibration (Just keep speaking my name)
I'm buildin' my own foundation, yeah
Hold up, oh, baby, baby

[Chorus: Beyoncé, Madonna]
You won't break my soul
You won't break my soul
You won't break my soul (Move to the music)
You won't break my soul (You know you can do it)
I'm tellin' everybody, na, na
Everybody
Everybody
Everybody
I'm built for this
[Post-Chorus: Big Freedia]
I'm 'bout to explode, take off this load
Bend it, bust it open, won't ya make it go
I'm 'bout to explode, take off this load
Bend it, bust it open, won't ya make it go
Bend it, bust it open, bend it, bust it open, bend it, bend it
Bend it, bust it open, bend it, bust it open, bend it, bend it
Yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka
Yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka, yaka-yaka

[Verse 2: Beyoncé]
I'ma let down my hair 'cause I lost my mind
Bey is back and I'm sleepin' real good at night
The queens in the front and the Doms in the back
Ain't takin' no flicks but the whole clique snapped
There's a whole lot of people in the house
Tryin' to smoke with the yak in your mouth
And we back outside
You said you outside, but you ain't that outside
Worldwide hoodie with the mask outside
In case you forgot how we act outside

[Verse 3: Beyoncé, Madonna]
