Beyonce and Jay-Z perform during the "On The Run Tour: Beyonce And Jay-Z" at Minute Maid Park on July 18, 2014 in Houston, Texas.  

Ladies -- Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Lil' Kim and Remy Ma -- took over R&B and hip-hop this week.

Beyoncé kicked off the week with a surprise release of the remix to "Flawless," which features Nicki Minaj, on Sunday morning, Aug. 3.

Nicki Minaj followed up with a teaser to the twerk-friendly video to "Anaconda" hours later and the iTunes debut of the The Pinkprint single.

But, just two days after, Lil' Kim halted (or tried to, depending on who you ask) her winning streak with a remix to Beyoncé's "Flawless" remix and a new song, "Identity Theft," on where she throws shots at Nicki Minaj. Oof!
