R&B singer Kelis has accused Beyoncé of using a “stolen” music sample from her own 1999 debut album, “Kaleidoscope,” without permission, the Daily Mail reported. The “Milkshake” singer did not mince her words while going after “Queen Bey” and Pharell Williams.
She alleges Beyoncé uses a section of her song, “Get Along With You,” on Renaissance’s “Energy, with the rest of the world.”
“My mind is blown too because the level of disrespect and utter ignorance all 3 parties involved is astounding,” Kelis said in a comment to fan who pointed out she was featured on the new album. “Some of the people in this business have no soul or integrity and they have everyone fooled.”
Kelis fans previously called out Beyoncé using music from “Caught out There” (1999) in “Ring the Alarm” (2006).
She continued: ‘I heard about this the same way everyone else did. Nothing is ever as it seems, some of the people in this business have no soul or integrity and they have everyone fooled.’
In response to one comment that Beyonce clearly admires her work, Kelis replied: ‘Admire is not the word.’
