Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj should probably work together more often, because their remix to “Flawless” was named best song of 2014 by Time.

The song, which is their first collaboration, tops the magazine’s annual list of the greatest 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.

The Hit-Boy-produced song, which appears on the re-released, expanded edition of Beyoncé’s self-titled album, beat out several big hits including Tinashe and ScHoolboy Q’s “2 On” at #5 and Future’s “Move That Dope” featuring Pusha T and Pharrell, which came in at #3.
