How did we miss this incredible video of Beyoncé dancing to Shostakovich? It doesn’t matter. It’s here now.

Mezzo and Official Queen of Everything Beyoncé has had more dance craze success than most, but chief among them has to be the now-iconic b&w video for ‘Single Ladies’.

So clearly the best thing to do with such an influential dance craze is to take the strains of Shostakovich’s 10th Symphony and bodge it all together to see if it works.

And it does, obviously:
