Kelis calls out Queen B
Kelis expressed her opinion about Beyonce sampling her song in videos posted to her Instagram. Beyonce is yet to reply to the claims made by her fellow artist.
The Milkshake singer says: “Number one, so I’m a human being so I get pissed off and I get ticked off.”
“The reality is that my real beef, is not only with Beyoncé, because at the end of the day, she sampled a record, she’s copied me before, so have many other artists, it’s fine, I don’t care about that,” she continues.
Kelis alleges that Beyonce did not ask for her permission before sampling her song.
“I said what I said because it’s the truth. You don’t have to like it or agree, facts are facts. If you’re a sheep, keep it moving. This convo will be over your head. I didn’t ask for this, but I’m not afraid of it either,” Kelis captioned her video on Instagram.
Wothappen has reached out to Beyonce for comments on Keli’s remarks. However, at the time of the publishment of this article, we’re yet to receive a response.
