After Kelis accused Beyonce of theft, she removed the sample of "Milkshake" from Renaissance ...

Kelis Milkshake has slashed all of the boys to the yard, but not Beyonce or the producers who made the mega-hit. Beyonce has removed the interpolation of Kelis' 2003 hit from her Renaissance track ENERGY on streaming services after she accused Bey and the production duo The Neptunes of theft prior to the songs' release.

A Kelis fan account reported that a sample of Milkshake would be included on the album on July 28, the day before Renaissance was released. Kelis then wrote that she found out the same thing everyone else did, and she was never informed of it. My mind is blown too because the level of disrespect and total ignorance of all three parties involved is staggering.

Milkshake is famous because to Kelis's abilities, but only Williams and Hugo are recognized as songwriters and producers, an issue that she has fought many times. This means that Beyonce was not required to obtain Kelis' permission to interpolate the hit.

In two Instagram videos, the Bossy singer expressed concern about Beyonce for failing to give her a heads-up, pointing out how Ashnikko, a 26-year-old singer, reached out when sampling her breakout song Caught Out There in 2021. We are Black female musicians in an industry where there are not that many of us, but we also have mutual friends. She can contact, right? she said. It's just common sense.

After years of conflict with The Neptunes, she explained that the interpolation was a trigger. It happens all the time, especially back then, and it's not about me being mad about Beyonce... Pharrell knows better. This is a direct hit at me... The reason I'm irritated is because I know it was intended.

Kelis explained that she doesn't make any money from her first two albums due to a disagreement with Williams and Hugo, who have the writing credits on those albums, who claims that The Neptunes and their staff lied to and tricked her. I'm like, yeah, I signed what I was told, and I'm too young and stupid to check it out.

Kelis said the scandal has fueled her to fight for writing credits on her early records once more. She captioned the post, saying, "I'm here for what is mine. Reparation."
