Beyoncé Knowles y removed her sample of Kelis’ “Milkshake” from her new song “Energy” after the latter publicly accused her of “theft.”
The sampled beat no longer appears on Queen Bey’s “Renaissance” album on streaming services, and Kelis’ name also has been wiped from the credits list.
The change was made just days after Kelis, 42, called out music industry people for having “no soul or integrity” in how they treated her.
“I heard about this the same way everyone else did,” she continued. “Nothing is ever as it seems, some of the people in this business have no soul or integrity and they have everyone fooled.”
