are ya’ll still listening to renaissance?
the new shit i’ve had on repeat:
“All Up In Your Mind”
this song touches my spirit for personal reasons.
the one thing i like about beyonce is her maturity.
there has been a resolution with all this kelis drama…
Beyoncé has removed Kelis’ sample from her new song “ENERGY”.
The sampled beat no longer appears on streaming services, and her credits have been removed.

it wasn’t like kelis was getting money from it.
this was a war between kelis vs pharrell.
poor bey was in the middle.
it’s best to remove the shit and move forward.
kelis was never gonna stfu about this in her dragging.
bey was like lemme wipe my hands of this before it gets really messy.
someone called out bey for using a slur on the song,
my fav song on the album too.
she used the word “spaz” and someone(s) got in their feelings.
bey will have to re-record:
Beyoncé will remove the word “spaz” from one of her new songs, “Heated,” after she received criticism from disability advocates.
A rep for Beyoncé tells Rolling Stone, “The word, not used intentionally in a harmful way, will be replaced.” It’s unclear how the “Heated” lyric will be changed; as of publication, the original version of the song was still live on streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify.
Beyoncé uses the word twice on “Heated,” singing, “Spazzin’ on that ass, spaz on that ass.” Though the word was ostensibly used in a colloquial way to mean going crazy or wild, “spaz” — which is derived from “spastic” — has a history of being used as a slur for those with disabilities, especially cerebral palsy.
some folks are way too sensitive.
i wouldn’t even have associated that with that.
it’s gotten so bad,
monica lewinsky going back to bey’s self-titled for a lyric change:
uhmm, while we’re at it… #Partition

this album is infamous.
You know that means it’s GREAT.
the lessers wished they had this kind of drama for their releases.
