If you watch the video, the song is about her husband. He has been cheating on her and she has finally decided to kick him out. He is telling her that she will never be able to replace him, but she is telling him that she already has.

I think this song is about that a guy thinks that's she's doing the wrong thing in breakin' up with him. That she would not find anyone like him again.
"standin' in the front yard telling me how I 'm such a fool
Talking 'bout I'll never ever find a man like you"
But she says that he's wrong. That she doesn't care about him. That she can find someone like him anywhere
"I could have another you in a minute"
and that he should never think that he's Irreplaceable
"And don't you ever 4 a second get to thinkin, you're irreplaceable"

I think it may be about a woman giving a man the boot. The woman doesn't need him but he must think she does. "You must not know about me, I can have another you in a minute. Matter of fact he'll be here in a minute." He deserves it for thinking she's stupid and nieve. It's just about a woman who's had enough of this man in her life. "Don't you ever for a second get to thinking your irreplaceable." There's plenty of fish in the sea!

The woman is upset for settling for replaceable guys and is lashing out to bring him down with her.

Everyone gets the text, but few get the subtext: SHE is the one who keeps using the word “irreplaceable”. Her feelings have been so hurt that she’s lashing out in anger, saying things she doesn’t mean, but she unwittingly admits that he IS irreplaceable. It’s hurt sarcasm. Sad.

The song is about her being a whore. Obviously! Is going to have another man over in "a minute" then obviously she is or at least has been window shopping for another man. So the both of them are some cheating WHORES. Drop Mic.

She's over the dude! She's to good for him and fed up with him. The man thinks she won't be able to do better but she's good and knows her worth. You can be a looker but it's whats on the inside.
This song is about sending her living-in partner out of her own house because it cheated. She claims back all the things she gave the man. Beyonce also hides in this song the pain that she feels on the departure of the man by saying that she does not care and she can find another man that is better than him in less than an hour.
She states here that the man must have not known much of her.

This song is actualy about the guy who treated this lady badly and now this lady is leaving this guy so now this guy is treatning this lady that she will never find someone like him and this lady doesn't get treatened because this lady can find another guy in a minutes.

The songs about how her guy has cheated on her and she's kicking him out for it. And he's telling her that she's making a mistake by doing that because she's never gonna find someone as great as him.
(Standing in the front yard telling me
How I'm such a fool - Talking about
How I'll never ever find a man like you )
So she's saying she could find someone to replace him anytime she wants.
(I could have another you in a minute
matter fact he'll be here in a minute - baby...
... I can have another you by tomorrow
So don't you ever for a second get to thinking you're irreplaceable)

This song isn't about JZ becaise she even said it wasn't. Ne-yo made this song for her and she fell in love with it and the idea of the song suited her very well. This song about a man who cheated on her but she is telling him that : No she isn't gonna take him cheating on her, he needs to take all his stuff out of her house and get the stepping, leave, get out, but all the stuff that she bought for him ( the jacket in the video she takes off him), his car ( that's why he is taking a taxi) she's telling him she doesn't need him, and she'll have another man quick fast. He is Replaceable, not Irreplaceable. <33
