Beyoncé & Madonna: BREAK MY SOUL (THE QUEENS REMIX) Comments (0)

Madonna-beyonce-vogue-boyculture

The “Queens Remix” of Beyoncé's “Break My Soul” is credited to Beyoncé & Madonna and includes a huge chunk of Madonna's “Vogue.” In the rap, Beyoncé laundry-lists Black female singers instead of movie stars, including:

Queen Mother Madonna, Aaliyah, Rosetta Tharpe, Santigold, Bessie Smith, Nina Simone, Betty Davis, Solange Knowles, (Erykah) Badu, Lizzo, Kelly Rowl(and), Lauryn Hill, Roberta Flack, Toni (Braxton), Janet (Jackson), Tierra Whack, Missy (Elliott), Diana (Ross), Grace Jones, Aretha (Franklin), Anita (Baker), Grace Jones (again), Helen Folasade Adu (aka Sade), Jilly from Philly (aka Jill Scott), Michelle (Williams), Chlöe (Bailey), Halle (Bailey), Aaliyah (again), Alicia (Keys), Whitney (Houston), Riri (aka Rihanna), Nicki (Minaj).

She then lists the houses of:
 
Xtravaganza, Revlon, LaBeija, Amazon, Avion, Balmain, Ninja, Lanvin, Telfar, Ladosha, Mugler, Balenciaga and Mizrahi.
 
It is transcendent.
 
People give Madonna crap for theft, but as this very ballroom-authentic version of “Vogue” reminds us, when Madonna vogued, she gave it her own spin, made it more staccato, more pop, and went full '40s and '50s Hollywood. Also, the criticism about how white it was is off base — Madonna's frame of reference was necessarily white, and Hollywood created few famous Black faces who would have immediately suggested themselves to a 30-year-old white woman in 1990. Maybe Lena Horne, but hey, the “Vogue” rap is hardly all-inclusive of even white icons — Joan Crawford missed out!
 
Also, the ballroom queens were also white-centered — they were obsessed with white models, with Dynasty, etc. It took a minute for Black Pride to hit, and for white society to also catch up to the importance of that kind of representation.
 
That's what I love about Beyoncé's list — it wouldn't be my list, but she includes a LOT of very worthy names, throws in some head-scratchers ... and gives the Joan Crawford treatment to Mariah Carey, Tina Turner, Donna Summer, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Eartha Kitt and even Lena Horne. But no list is all-inclusive, and one person's list isn't another.
