Here at DS, we're huge fans of Chloé Arnold's Syncopated Ladies. We've been in love with them ever since they gave Rihanna's "Where Have You Been" a tap-tastic makeover back in 2012. I mean, talk about girl power: Arnold and her ladies (including her sister Maud and Melinda Sullivan—both former DS cover models) bring the strength AND the sexy every time they perform.

Their recent tribute to Beyoncé (set to "End of Time") was certainly no exception. Yep, that day we learned some basic math: Beyoncé + The Syncopated Ladies = pure magic. Queen Bey agreed, and she posted this on her Facebook wall on January 9:

To thank Beyoncé for the shout out, the Syncopated Ladies got to work on another tap tribute, this one set to "Flawless." They released the video earlier this month, and we may or may not have stopped watching it since...

Syncopated Ladies, you truly are flawless.
