With fans demanding removing of ableist lyrics and Kelis accusing Beyoncé of theft it seems RENAISSANCE is without its share of controversy.
The “Energy” track has now been modified on all streaming platforms in honor of Kelis claims.
According to Kelis “This was a TRIGGER for me. ‘Milkshake’ alone is one of the most licensed records of our generation. I am a creator, I’m an innovator, I have done more then left my mark on an era of music and style that will go down in history. But there are bully’s and secrets and gangsters in this industry that smile and get away with it until someone says enough is enough. So I’m saying it today. I’m coming for what’s mine and I want reparations.”
