If you're in need of a new self-love anthem, look no further than Beyoncé's "Cozy."

As the second track off her highly-anticipated album Renaissance, which dropped today, the energetic song celebrates Beyoncé's confidence and pride in herself. Singing in the chorus, she says that she feels "comfortable in my skin / cozy with who I am" and "I love myself, goddamn / Cozy, cozy."

She also praises her sister, Solange, for sharing that same confidence. As she sings in the pre-chorus:

She's a god (Ah-ooh), she's a hero (Ah-ooh)
She survived (Ah-ooh) all she been through (Ah-ooh, ooh)
Confident (Ah-ooh), damn, she lethal (Ah-ooh, ooh)
Might I suggest you don't fuck with my sis (Ooh)
'Cause she comfortable

In particular, the line, "Might I suggest you don't fuck with my sis," is seemingly hinting at Solange's infamous elevator fight with Jay-Z during the 2014 Met gala, according to an annotation on Genius.

At the time, leaked surveillance footage showed Solange confronting and then hitting Jay-Z while Beyoncé stands next to them. The incident led many to speculate that the rapper had cheated on Bey, and the couple later recounted and confirmed their experiences of this infidelity in their respective albums, Lemonade and 4:44.

After the footage was leaked, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Solange released a joint statement. "There has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it," it read, per People. "Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family."

Bey has previously referenced the fight in another song, her 2014 remix of "Flawless," in which she sings, "But no, we escalating, up in this bitch, like elevators / Of course, sometimes shit go down / When it's a billion dollars on an elevator."

Read the full lyrics to "Cozy" below.

[Intro]
This a reminder

[Verse 1]
Damn, I love the burning of the dagger
From the words that you say (Fuck, yeah)
Dancin' in the mirror, kiss my scars
Because I love what they made (Ooh, yeah)

[Pre-Chorus]
She's a god (Ah-ooh), she's a hero (Ah-ooh)
She survived (Ah-ooh) all she been through (Ah-ooh, ooh)
Confident (Ah-ooh), damn, she lethal (Ah-ooh, ooh)
Might I suggest you don't fuck with my sis (Ooh)
'Cause she comfortable

[Chorus]
Comfortable in my skin
Cozy with who I am
Comfortable in my skin
Cozy, cozy
Comfortable in my skin
Feet up above your sins
I love myself, goddamn
Cozy, cozy

[Post-Chorus]
So cozy
I love me
They hate me
'Cause they want me
(I'm dark brown, dark skin, light skin, bеige)
(Fluorescent bеige, bitch, I'm black)

[Verse 2]
Been down, been up, been broke, broke down, bounced back
Been off, been on, been back, what you know about that?
Been the light, been dark, been the truth, been that King Bey energy
I been thick, been fine, still a ten, still here, that's all me
Black like love too deep
Dance to the soles of my feet
Green eyes envy me
Paint the world pussy pink
Blue like the soul I crowned
Purple drank and couture gowns
Gold fangs a shade God made
Blue, black, white, and brown
Paint the town red like cinnamon
Yellow diamonds, limoncello glisterin'
Rainbow gelato in the streets
Renaissance, yachtin' in Capri

[Pre-Chorus]
You're a god (Ah-ooh, you're a god), you're a hero (Ah-ooh, you're a hero)
You survived (Ah-ooh) all you been through (Ah-ooh, ooh)
Confident (Ah-ooh), damn, you lethal (Ah-ooh, ooh)
Might I suggest you don't fuck with my sis (Ooh)
'Cause she comfortable

[Chorus]
Comfortable in my skin
Cozy with who I am
Comfortable in my skin
Cozy, cozy
Comfortable in my skin
Cozy with who I am
I love myself, goddamn
Cozy, cozy (Okay)

[Bridge]
I'm cozy (I'm cozy)
I'm juicy (I'm juicy)
You hate me (You hate me)
'Cause you want me ('Cause you want me)
I'm swaggy (I'm swaggy)
Effortlessly (Effortlessly)
That's how God made me (How God made me)
So, bitch, pay me (So pay me, ching-a-ling, ching, ching)
(I'm black)
(I'm probably one of the blackest motherfuckers walking around here)
Cozy
(In this motherfucking place)
(I'm probably one of the blackest motherfuckers in this house)
Cozy
(I'm black like that)

[Chorus]
Comfortable in my skin
Cozy with who I am
I love myself, goddamn
Cozy, cozy

[Outro]
Unique
Unique is what you are
