Flawless (Remix)

Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj woke up on top. The divas’ epic remix to “Flawless” was named best song of 2014 by TIME.

The Hit-Boy-produced song, which appears on the Platinum Edition of Beyoncé’s self-titled album, was ranked No. 1 on the magazine’s annual list of the best in music and entertainment.

“In a year that saw a number of high-profile female pop collaborations, ‘Flawless’ never topped the charts like ‘Fancy,’ but what it lacked in radio domination it made up for with sheer star power,” wrote TIME.

Tinashe and ScHoolboy Q’s “2 On” (No. 5) and Future’s “Move That Dope” featuring Pusha T, Pharrell, and Casino (No. 3) also earned a spot on the top 10 list.

According to TIME, the best albums of the year were Azealia Banks’ Broke With Expensive Taste (No. 10), Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence (No. 6), Taylor Swift’s 1989 (No. 4), and FKA twigs’ LP1 (No. 1).

Some artists like Fergie (“L.A.LOVE”) and Iggy Azalea (“Black Widow”) weren’t as fortunate and saw their songs on the worst list.
