Beyoncé Removes Kelis Interpolation From ‘Renaissance’ Amid Crediting Drama


Recommended Posts

Beyoncé is making another change to Renaissance.

After Kelis called out the "Break My Soul" singer and The Neptunes - Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, specifically - for using her song without notifying her, the 40-year-old superstar is now removing the "Milkshake" interpolation from her song, "Energy," co-produced with Skrillex, Al Cres, BEAM and Nova Wav.

"I have the right to be frustrated," Kelissaid of the interpolation done without her permission.

Kelis’ name was not featured in the songwriting and production credits for “Energy,” but Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo were. (Kelis is not credited as a songwriter or producer on "Milkshake," either.)

Fans have noticed while listening on Tidal that the interpolation is now missing from the song, as are the songwriting credits attributed to "Milkshake." 

The change has not yet been applied to other streaming services.

But has she called Kelis yet? ngl it was a little shady to sample her song without a call considering their history. Like, “Hey, I sort of ended your career after you dated my husband’s arch rival and now I’m sampling you on my new hit album without a phone call.” Love Bey and I consider myself pretty anti-social but this is just a bit chilly.
