“Energy” From Beyonce’s latest album has Kelis claiming “theft”

“Get Along With You” is sampled on “Energy,” which Kelis has likened to “theft.” She is not listed as one of the producers, composers, or lyricists on the sampled song and has previously discussed the terms of her early contract.
Beyoncé’s new album, Renaissance, includes a song that appears to sample Kelis’ Kaleidoscope single “Get Along With You.” While the full credits for the track, “Energy,” have not yet been revealed, credited composers include Pharrell Williams and Chad (presumably Williams’ Neptunes bandmate Chad Hugo). Kelis has now said that she was not made aware that “Get Along With You” was going to be sampled for Renaissance.
The new song “Energy” on Renaissance features bits from the song, written by The Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo. While Kelis sang the tune, only the production duo are credited as songwriters. The Billboard Hot 100-charting artist aired her grievances via Instagram on Thursday (July 28), in multiple comments from her Bounty & Full business account. After a Kelis Instagram fan page announced that “@Beyonce‘s RENAISSANCE album will include a @kelis sample on the song ‘Energy,’” alongside a mind-blown emoji, Kelis commented: “My mind is blown too because the level of disrespect and utter ignorance of all 3 parties involved is astounding .”
