Kelis has called out Chad Hugo and Pharrell over her song ‘Milkshake’ being sampled on Beyoncé’s new album Renaissance saying ‘it’s not a collab it’s theft’.

Beyoncé’s new album dropped today, July 29, and is packed with amazing songs featuring sampled artists, including Donna Summer, Big Freedia and Kelis, but it turns out Kelis isn’t as thrilled as fans are with her song being sampled.

Beyonce’s Renaissance sample’s Kelis

When the album tracklist dropped it was revealed Beyonce’s song ‘Energy’ samples Kelis’ 2000 track ‘Milkshake’. However, Kelis revealed she found out about the song being sampled at the same time as the rest of the world and no one ever contacted her to discuss this.

This came to light when people started commenting their excitement about the ‘collaboration’ on the Instagram account @Kelistrends when she wrote: “My mind is blown too because the level of disrespect and utter ignorance of all 3 parties involved is astounding.

“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.”

She also added: “It’s not a collab it’s theft.”

The drama continued when Kelis took to Instagram to voice her thoughts and views on the drama over two videos and stated her ‘beef’ is ‘not only with Beyonce’ but went on to call out Chad Hugo calling him an ‘amoeba’ and ‘spineless’ and saying Pharell “hasn’t wrote a song or lyrics a day in his life” in relation to her songs.

In the first video, she says: “Chad really is like an amoeba, he’s spineless. It’s a miracle he can keep his neck up, but Pharrell knows better. This is a direct hit at me, he does this stuff all the time. It’s very petty–very, very, very–and the reality is that it’s frustrating. I have the right to be frustrated.

“Why? Because no one had the human decency to call and be like ‘Yo, hey, would like to use your record.’ Which, by the way, is the reason I’m annoyed because I know it was on purpose.”

She goes on to call out Pharrell’s ‘hypocrisy’ for allegedly saying in interview artists should be able to have credit on their own work but went on to say when she first signed with his manager Pharrell had writing credits on her singles but ‘hasn’t wrote a song or lyrics a day in his life’.

Kelis also called out Beyonce for not reaching out to her prior to the record – all three, Beyonce, Pharell and Chad Hugo haven’t commented on the situation yet.
