*Queen Bey is gearing up to battle Channing Tatum on Spike TV’sLip Sync Battle” when the show returns for its second season in 2016.

The series was Inspired by “Jimmy Fallon‘s Tonight Show” segment that premiered back in April with host LL Cool J and featured battles between Justin Bieber vs. Deion Sanders, Iggy Azalea vs. her boyfriend/Los Angeles Lakers’ Nick Young, Anne Hathaway vs. Emily Blunt, Terrence Howard vs. Taraji P. Henson, Queen Latifah vs. Marlon Wayans and Salt vs. Pepa.

We all know Bey can sing, but no doubt it will be entertaining to see how good she is at lip-synching. Along with Beyonce and the “Magic Mike” star, Marvel’s Hayley Atwell and Clark Gregg are also set to appear to battle each other next season.

In related news, Beyonce released a remixed, mini-rendition of Prince’s “Darling Nikki” as an ode to her gal pal Nicki Minaj. She posted the footage on her Facebook page, along with a minute-long clip titled “Ice Grill” which shows Bey challenging Nicki to a face off.

“By the way, ice grill me as long as you can. Let’s have a contest. Let’s see who cracks first. I have a feeling I’m going to crack first,” she says to Minaj during the rehearsal of “Feeling Myself” for their live performance of the track during TIDAL’s 10/20 benefit concert.

A second clip was later posted on Beyonce’s YouTube page showing additional footage of Mrs. Carter’s revamping of Prince’s “Darling Nikki,” into  “Darling Nicki (Minaj).”

“I met this girl named Nicki, I guess you can say she was the rap queen,” Bey sung. “I met her in the studio lobby, but her booty looked bigger in them magazines. She said, ‘Bey will you jump on this song of mine,’ how could I resist when I heard little Nicki rhyme.”
