Beyoncé Finally Removes Kelis Sample From ‘ENERGY' Song
When the credits for Beyoncé's RENAISSANCE came out before the music, fans were excited to see names like The-Dream, JAY-Z and Drake in them. However, one artist that was credited was vocal about their frustration. Kelis took to social media to express her disdain over not knowing ‘Milkshake' was being
sampled/interpolated beforehand. My mind is blown too because the level of disrespect and utter ignorance of all 3 parties involved is astounding she wrote on social media. I heard about this the same way everyone else did.
Fans were quick to note that while ‘Milkshake' is Kelis' song, she isn't credited as a songwriter on it nor does she hold any copyrights to the song. This meant that technically, she had no say on whether it could be used or not. Now though, Beyoncé has responded to the criticism…in an interesting way.
Fans have noticed that the interpolation has been completely removed from the song, on TIDAL at least.
The same should follow on Spotify and Apple Music. This isn't the only change that's being made to the LP after release; another day we found out that she changed her spaz in ‘Heated', which was considered offensive for people who suffer from mental illness because of its ableist connotation and will be changed accordingly so as not to offend them – but just this one time!
