Kelis Reacts To Beyonce Removing Her From ‘Renaissance’: ‘[I’m] #Winning’

Published: Wednesday 3rd Aug 2022 by Rashad

‘Caught Out There’ hitmaker Kelis found herself caught in a swarm of stings from Beyonce fans (affectionately called the #Beyhive) last week when she spoke out against the music megastar for allegedly sampling her hits ‘Get Along with You’ and ‘Milkshake’ without permission.

Originally listed as one of many contributors to the July 29-released album ‘Renaissance,’ Kelis not only confirmed she was unaware of the listing before the public she also suggested Bey was a thief for securing use of the two songs from The Neptunes (their writers and producers) instead of consulting her.

And while her commentary ignited a polarizing debate about artists’ rights and fair use, the hoopla eventually led Beyonce to remove the Kelis interpolation all together from the album’s track ‘Energy.’

Look inside to see the energy Kel brought to the yard when she learned about the axing.

As we reported here, Spotify and TIDAL now boast a new version of ‘Energy’ – complete without any reference to “Milkshake” after Kelis made headlines for suggesting the song was ‘stolen.’

“My mind is blown too because the level of disrespect and utter ignorance of all 3 parties involved is astounding,” Kelis wrote at the time.

Once news of the removal made headlines, a number of critics rushed to Kel’s social media handles to gloat.  Look below to see how she responded to their comments (courtesy of TSR).

As seen in the post above, one commenter even told the singer/songwriter/media personality/professional chef that now she can “go back to BBQ sauce.”

Her reply?  “Oh absolutely lol #winning.”

    Beyoncé sided with her tho. She removed pherrell and chad from the credits. So, they won’t get paid from it. I’m sure bey and kelis had a chat or someone in their camp.

    • Blow August 3, 2022

      Agreed! Beyoncé can’t say she is a feminist on one album and contradict herself on another

  2. Diabetes UNBOTHERED August 3, 2022

    😂 What makes me Laugh is the fact Beyonce literally does not care one single bit about not one once of backlash she’s ever received since the year she lost her virginity to Jayz in 2002. 😂

    • Diabetes UNBOTHERED August 3, 2022

      *ounce* (not once)

    • Sal August 4, 2022

      Beyonce isn’t this unbothered supreme being like you guys paint her out to be. She always responds in some fashion. It’s not on brand for her to release statements or participate on social media but just know she sees all and she CARES.

        The Carters care heavily about what people think of them. That’s why their public image is crafted so meticulously.

      • yup! August 4, 2022

        Exactly! And if you really hurt their feelings they just started telling all their “friends” and peers how it will benefit them not to work with you anymore. They care. In this case, all she had to do was invite Kelis to sing her part over the track. That would have been the better look. Even if it was just for show.

      • FAF August 4, 2022

        Beyoncé literally had a song called I can’t take no more where she cried about not liking the backslash she receives

        bow down was a response

        Also the song on this album where she talks about flip flopping

        The only reason she stopped doing interviews is bc she doesn’t like her words twisted if she misspeaks it has nothing To do with being unbothered

        Kelis Won And the hive will deal

        She is a Black independent woman who refused to silence herself just bc people praise Beyoncé and it paid off

      • UHoesFunny August 4, 2022

        All of y’all sounds stupid 😂 but carry on 🐝🐝🐝🐝

  3. Paulo August 3, 2022

    Lol Kelis is such a Leo. Totally disagree with her stance on this but love her backbone and her artistry period

  4. Diabetes UNBOTHERED August 3, 2022

    I’m glad the Kelis credit got dropped cause it was such a LOOSE insignificant sample that’s hardly noticeable anyway. Kelis is was ungrateful, bey could have gotten away with using the sample without creditting at all because neither Sample is even noticeable to begin with. 😂

    • yup! August 4, 2022

      Nah… its very noticeable. At the end it feels flat now and she should replace it with harmony notes at the very least. Your ears adjust to that lalala section because it was the catchy part of the climax. Now its just empty. Much like the content of the album is.

      • tiara dunkin August 4, 2022

        It’s astounding that unhappy people click on posts that they disagree with just to spread hate and negativity..

        Then call it, having an opinion or freedom.

        You are right. You choose to be nasty. You choose to spread hate and lies about someone u don’t and will never know.

        Chile, I hope y’all kids are on the honor roll because you seem to have such free time to be bothered about a black girl from Texas ..

      • UHoesFunny August 4, 2022

        “Yup” sounds like an ugly idiot 😂

  5. eric August 3, 2022

    It’s astounding the amount of ignorance and disrespect from a lot of the fans trying to defend Beyonce. It really makes me question some things.

    • Naïme August 4, 2022

      Do you really expect an intelligent reaction from the TermitHive ?

      • Gworl Bye August 4, 2022

        Exactly. They had to google “renaissance” to find out what it means lol!😆

  6. kiena August 4, 2022

  7. marilyn monh-O-E ® 👠(#1 DIVA) August 4, 2022

    Kelis is mad and jealous of Queen B’s happy family 💅🏾 Please be rational, it ain’t Queen B’s fault that kelis’s husband dead💀

    • FAF August 4, 2022

      Beyoncé husband has a secret child in Trinidad and liked his mistress Cathy a few years ago 😂😂😂🤣🤣

  8. marilyn monh-O-E ® 👠(#1 DIVA) August 4, 2022

    Khia = Uncle Clifford

  10. Tiffany co August 4, 2022

    LoL Kelis is a mess. I truly hope she’s having a wonderful day. She’s been thru a lot.

  11. Ace August 4, 2022

    She’s so dumb !!!! She doesn’t own her master or music rights

  12. I DONT CARE August 4, 2022

    Renaissance is a pack of s***, the best song on that messsssssss is Break my soul and even that is subpar. I’m so tired of this fricking heffer trying to be ingenious with her music, both her and Jay-Z are basic. Renaissance needs to be put out with Monday’s garbage.

  14. Gworl Bye August 4, 2022

    Lol beyonce fans clearly have no clue of the concept of artistic integrity, hell they had to google “renaissance” to find out the meaning lmao. Kelis scored a major win for real artistry, which is why she’s chuckling at these twitter clowns that love beyonce so much lol.

  15. UHoesFunny August 4, 2022




    They write paragraphs, and scripts, and novels.

    And for what?!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Only for Beyonce to proceed to do whatever the fck she wants to do, and have y’all complain about it.

    QUEEN B SHIIT 👑🐝🐝🐝

    • I DONT CARE August 4, 2022

      Of course its #1 on the charts because you saliva eating drones only move when the neck moves. She laughs all the ways to bank. Such lame ass suckers, the beehive needs to be smoked out with hot s***.

    If you bought the pre-order vinyl, the value just went up. Two changes to the original, from deleting lyrics and samples…
