Jay-Z doubles-up on his Beyoncé references with his latest verse, a feature on Kendrick Lamar‘s remix of “B**** Don’t Kill My Vibe” from Lamar’s debut album, good kid m.A.A.d. city.

Young Guru, Jay-Z’s longtime engineer, previewed the track on Wednesday (March 14), while DJing at Empire Auto Space in Austin, Texas during a SXSW party.

Along with new lyrics from Lamar, Jay hits the second verse with yet another nod to his wife Beyoncé.

“Up in the clouds, me and my spouse/ Rumors on the ground getting too loud please turn them s**** down/ Can’t hear myself think/ Turbulance, s*** I almost spilled my drink”

It is the second feature verse this year from Jay-Z, including his turn on Justin Timberlake‘s comeback track, “Suit & Tie.”

On “Suit And Tie,” Jay talks about his marriage and his relationship with his in-laws.

“Tell your mother that I love her cause I love you/ Tell your father we go farther as a couple/ They ain’t lose a daughter, they got a son”

UPDATE: Check out the official remix, here.

While Jay-Z gives his latest shout to Beyoncé, she offered a nod to their union with the title of her forthcoming tour, The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, which kicks off April 16 in Belgrade, Serbia.

Before Jay remixed Kendrick’s “B**** Don’t Kill My Vibe,” Lady Gaga appeared on a version of the song that did not make the album.
