Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj's hot new video for "Feeling Myself" has us thinking of other collaborations we'll always adore. Whitney Houston, Faith Evans, and Kelly Price? Check.
Eve & Gwen Stefani? Check!
The good news is that Beyonce and Nicki Minaj’s new video for “Feeling Myself” is EVERYTHING. The bad news is that the video is only available for Tidal subscribers.
Before you dish out the monthly subscription fee to watch the video, check out these 12 ladies-only video collaborations instead. We guarantee you’re going to (remember how much you) love them!
“Heartbreak Hotel”—Whitney Houston, Faith Evans, Kelly Price
Three timeless greats in one timeless video. Set against a tropical background, the music video captures the heartbreaking essence of the song.
“Up Out My Face”—Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj
Before the two were beefin’, they were collaboratin’. The music video for their 2010 song features them as oversized Barbies stepping out of giant toy boxes (we wouldn’t expect anything less from this divalicious duo!).
“You Want This”—Janet Jackson & MC Lyte
Warning: You’re going to want to head out on an impromptu road trip with your girlfriends after (re)watching this video.
“Let Me Blow Ya Mind”—Eve & Gwen Stefani
This unlikely pair had the surprise hit of 2001 with “Let Me Blow Ya Mind.” Believe us when we say that these two superstars are BOSS in this music video.
“Lose Control”—Missy Elliot & Ciara
Missy Elliott werkin’ it in the desert + an ultra-femme Ciara = a music video that, 10 years later, we still can’t get enough of.
“The Boy is Mine”—Brandy & Monica
It’s no surprise that perhaps the greatest female collaboration of all time has perhaps the greatest music video of all time. The only thing better than hearing Brandy and Monica battle over a boy is actually seeing it.
“Ladies Night (Not Tonight)”—Lil’Kim, Angie Martinez, Left Eye, Da Brat, Missy Elliott
Once upon a time, Kool & the Gang sang about a man’s version of ladies’ night. Eighteen years later, this fierce group of women released a video showing what a real ladies’ night looks like.
“Let it Go”—Keyshia Cole, Lil’ Kim & Missy Elliot
Because we all need Keyshia Cole, Lil’ Kim and Missy Elliott telling us to let go of a toxic relationship (and go hit the club instead).
“Gangsta Lovin'”—Eve & Alicia Keys
If this music video taught us anything, it was that Eve and Alicia Keys know how to throw an enviable summer bash. We’re also loving the 2002 clothes.
“1, 2 Step”—Ciara & Missy Elliott
2005 was the year of Ciara and Missy Elliott collaborations. And they knocked it out of the park with every single song (and video).
“Video Phone”—Beyonce & Lady Gaga
After Lady Gaga released her hit song, “Telephone,” featuring Beyonce in 2010, Bey responded with “Video Phone” featuring Lady Gaga. Hot song, hotter video.
“Lady Marmalade”—Mya, Lil’Kim, Missy Elliott, Christina Aguilera, P!nk
It’s possible that this music video is even greater than the song itself. The remake of Labelle’s 1975 hit scored director Paul Hunter a 2001 Billboard Video Award for Director of the Year.
