I swear, it’s déjà vu.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z subtly posed for a photo by an elevator en route to celebrate the singer’s new album – eight years after the rapper’s infamous brawl with Solange Knowles.
The photo, of the married couple gazing gloomily in front of an elevator, was nestled in a group of glamor photos posted Monday from her “Renaissance” bash on the Times Square Edition.
The “Break My Soul” singer, 40, shone in a metallic black bodysuit while Jay-Z, 52, looked suave in a cream suit as they stood in front of an elevator on the sixth floor.
The snap comes weeks after fans were convinced she was referring to the famous fight in her new song “Cozy.”
“May I suggest you don’t f–k with my sister / because she’s comfortable,” she sings in the new song.
In 2014, after a Met Gala afterparty at the Standard Hotel in New York City, surveillance obtained by TMZ revealed that Beyoncé’s sister and Jay-Z had a physical altercation in the elevator.
The video shows Solange, 36, yelling, punching and kicking the rap mogul as a bodyguard tried to stop the singer from “A Seat at the Table.” Beyoncé intervened to try to break up the two, but Solange continued to attack her brother-in-law.
Rumors about the cause of the melee circulated after the footage was released. At the time, it was reported that Solange had also gotten into a verbal altercation with designer Rachel Roy, with a source telling Us Weekly that Jay-Z said something that made her break up.
“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage on Monday, May 5, there has been much speculation about the cause of the unfortunate incident,” the couple and Solange said in a joint statement at the time. “The most important thing is that our family got through it. Jay and Solange each take their share of responsibility for what happened. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has taken place in public.
“They both apologized to each other and we moved on as a united family. The reports that Solange was drunk or exhibiting erratic behavior that night is simply false. At the end of the day, families have problems and we are no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We have put this behind us and hope everyone will do the same.”
It’s not the first time the pair have hinted at their scandal by posing by an elevator or even in song.
In 2017, they posed together in an elevator for paparazzi on Jay-Z’s 48th birthday. The couple left a movie theater in downtown Manhattan.
And on her song “Flawless” with Nicki Minaj, she sings, “Of course s–t sometimes goes down when there’s a billion dollars in an elevator.”
Vidak For Congress exclusively revealed on Monday that some of Beyoncé’s guests booted up in Midtown over the weekend “because they were drunk and foolish,” a source said, adding that others were being removed “to record videos.”
