If you can name an A-list female pop star who wasn't in Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" video, chances are pretty good they're appearing in Madonna's "Bitch I'm Madonna" video, which is "coming soon." And yes, that includes Beyonce.

Madonna took to Instagram this morning (June 16) to reveal that the Queen of Pop and Queen Bey are appearing in an upcoming music video together (!!). If we have Tidal to thank for this, then all praise to Jay Z and his Scandinavian business friends.

Once you've let that sink in, check out the rest of the clip's cast: Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj (who features on the song) and Rita Ora.

While Swift fans will be quick to point out this set-up is suspiciously similar to the "Bad Blood" video, it's likely that Madge had this project in the works before becoming aware of Taylor's plans (you don't get Beyonce for your music video on last-minute notice, even if you're Madonna).

Still, the Tarantino-esque teaser art is a bit close to Taylor territory, no? Check it below, and don't forget to breathe while you wait for this massive pop culture event.
