What happened between Keri Hilson and Beyonce?
The beef started back in 2009 after Keri Hilson’s Beyonce diss track surfaced. The beef started after fans thought that Keri had thrown shade at Queen B in her hit song ‘Turnin’ Me On.’ The song was a part of the singer’s debut studio album In a Perfect World (2009).
Although the lyrics didn’t explicitly mention Beyonce’s name, many listeners believed that some lines from the ‘Turning Me On’ lyrics were a stinging attack on Beyonce. Here’re the controversial Turning Me On lyrics that started the Keri Hilson and Beyonce drama.
“Your vision cloudy if you think that you da best, You can dance, she can sing, but need to move it to the left…” she sang. “She needs to go have some babies, she needs to sit down, she fake, them other chicks ain’t even worth talkin’ bout.”
Keri Hilson Beyonce beef grew in 2011
The R & B singer remained tight-lipped about her alleged 2009 diss track for years. But many believed the ‘Turning Me On’ lyrics mentioned qualities that hinted towards Beyonce.
Many believed that Keri Hilson dissed Beyonce with lines about moving it to the left. This seemed to be a reference to Beyoncé’s 2006 song “Irreplaceable.”
According to a report in Cheatsheet, in 2011 the Keri Hilson Beyonce beef reached newer heights when Keri refused to hold the newest issue of Juicy Magazine after noticing Beyoncé and Jay-Z were on the cover..
It appears as though the ‘Keri Hilson Beyonce diss track’ and the following beef did not go well for the singer. She faced an unimaginable amount of backlash from Queen B’s fans in the following years.
As the Internet hate grew more severe and became unbearable, Keri took to Twitter in 2013. The singer wrote, “You have no idea what your hateful words could do to someone’s spirit. Years of verbal abuse from strangers all day long. Enough is enough!”
Keri Hilson and Beyonce’s Beef has finally ended
In the upcoming years, Keri tried to move on with her career, but fans wouldn’t let her forget the beef. The singer has not released a single album in the past decade. The backlash from Beyonce’s fans forced Keri to step away from the limelight.

In her recent interview with Persia Nicole, the singer revealed that the matter was put to rest after she had a healing conversation with Beyonce. Keri said that meeting Beyonce made her realise that the two were alike in some ways. Keri revealed that she realised that Beyonce was intuitive just like her.
