Kelis Teases Beyonce and Pharrell For Their Song Use In Renaissance

Kelis Teases Beyonce and Pharrell For Their Song Use In Renaissance ...

Beyonce's seventh studio album,Renaissance, has arrived, and her Beyhive fanbase has been raving about it. However, singer Kelis is dissatisfied with her performance in one of the LPs songs, so much that she has labelled Queen Bey's actions a thief.

Through an Instagram post on a Kelis fan account indicating a musical collaboration on the Renaissance track, Energy, the singer and chef learned of the interpolated use of their 2003 single Milkshake.

Kelis stated that her real conflict with Beyonce was not only with me. She has already copied me and many others. It's fine. We're not all black women artists in an industry where there arent that many of us. It's common decency.

Kelis continued, stating that Beyonce's decision to include a sample from Milkshake was presumably influenced by Pharrell being modest and Chad Hugo being spineless.

The real issue is with the people like Pharrell and Chad [Hugo]. Chad is an amoeba, and it's a miracle he can keep his neck up. But Pharrell understands better. He does this stuff all the time. It's very petty, she claims.

After the official release of Energy, the singer returned to Instagram to finish her rant, repeating everything she said in her previous video.

Milkshake alone is one of the most licensed records of our generation, Rogers-Mora wrote in her second video caption. I have done more than leave my mark on an era of music and style that will go down in history.

There are spies and gangsters in this industry who smile and get away with it until someone says enough is enough. So I'm saying it today. Im going for what's mine, and I want reparations. Peace.

Kelis disclosed her displeasure with The Neptunes with The Guardian in 2020, and she claimed she made nothing from the sales of her first two albums.

Kelis maintained that she was duped and misled during the recording of her debut album, Kaleidoscope.
