The Tidal benefit concert featured a slew of high-profile performers – including Jay Z, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Usher, Nick Jonas and T.I. – but it was Beyonce and Minaj’s “Feeling Myself” that proved to be the most noteworthy.
The two forces in music went all out in their equally revealing numbers, doing a dance-off and striking fierce poses with one another.

“When u & ya bestie see the girls y’all got beef with walking in the club,” Minaj captioned a picture of the two up onstage.
Minaj also wrote a lengthy Instagram post, thanking Billboard, the concertgoers and Beyonce’s husband Jay Z, who owns Tidal.
“Billboard, thank you for the great write up. So glad u guys enjoyed the set. Thank you to you guys for watching and shout out to the people who came to the Barclays Center last night,” Minaj wrote. “Not only did we have an incredible night together, but your money went to charity! Jay, thank you for opening doors for so many rappers who always looked up to u. You are everything we want to embody creatively & professionally.”
“I lived for the independent women who were in the building screaming when I asked if they were making their own money,” Minaj added, before singing Beyonce’s praises. “Its always an honor to be on the stage with Bey, but not just for me, I see how it inspires women to become a force! A boss! Unstoppable!”
Tidal raised roughly $1 million in ticket sales for the concert. The proceeds will be dispersed to various organizations by the New World Foundation.
