It looks like Beyonce heard Kelis’s concerns.
We previously reported that Kelis called Beyonce out for sampling one of her songs without her permission. Kelis said on Instagram, “I said what I said , cause it’s the truth . You don’t have to like it or agree . Facts are facts . If you’re a sheep keep it movin this convo will be over your head . I didn’t ask for this , but I’m not afraid of it either.”
In another video she explains, “I just heard the record everyone is saying has my sample . But it’s beyond this song at this point . This was a TRIGGER for me . Milkshake alone is one of the most licensed records of our generation. I am a creator , I’m an innovator, I have done more then left my mark on an era of music and style that will go down in history . But there are bully’s and secrets and gangsters in this industry that smile and get away with it until someone says enough is enough . So I’m saying it today . I’m coming for what’s mine and I want reparations . Peace .”
Since the video has gone viral, reports claim that Beyonce has removed the ‘Milkshake’ interpolation from her song ‘Energy.’
