Beyoncé just shared her very own “Classy, Bougie, Ratchet” playlist on TIDAL in celebration of her and Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Savage” remix. Although Bey’s kept pretty quiet about the release of the “Savage” remix since it dropped last Wednesday (April 29th), the Queen came through with a collection of her favourite tunes that fit the theme of the multifaceted bad b*tch anthem. Naming the playlist, which was shared exclusively on TIDAL, after a lyric on the “Savage” chorus, Bey racked up 39 tracks total, curating a mix of hip-hop and R&B favourites past and present.

Naturally, Bey kicked things off with “Savage” remix, followed by a myriad of hits from tons of beloved female rappers like Lil’ Kim, Trina, Kash Doll, City Girls, Lil’ Keke, and Missy Elliott. However, she also made sure to rep her and Meg’s Southern roots by including Texas natives like Travis Scott, Slim Thug, Bun B, Paul Wall, Maxo Kream, and, of course, her sister, Solange. Bey also plugs her bestie and former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland’s new single, “Coffee,” as well.
Additional artists who made the cut on the prestigious playlist include legends like Aretha Franklin, Janet Jackson, and Sade, as well as promising newcomers like Don Toliver, Omb Bloodbath, Cookiee Kawaii, and Tobe Nwigwe. Check out the full batch of “Classy, Bougie, Ratchet” selections below:
