In a series of comments made from Kelis Cooking’s Instagram account, Tweet embedThe singer shared her thoughts on her “Get Along with You” track appearing as a sample on “The Power.” Produced by Neptunes, the original appeared on her 2000 album kaleidoscope.
Reads comment from bountyandfull handle on Post a fan page about the news. “I heard about this in the same way as others. Nothing is ever as it seems, some people in this business have no soul or integrity and everyone has been deceived.”
One fan commented, “Wow…this is a collaboration the world really needs.” Kilis replied, “It’s not collaboration, it’s stealing.” In another response, she described the situation as “funny”.
When one user wrote, “I always felt like Beyoncé really liked Kellys,” the singer He said “Like is not the word.”
Kelis later took to her Instagram account to process the whole thing, writing, “I just heard the record everyone says has sampled me. But it’s beyond this song at this point.”
Kellys continued to comment on the second post, “This was such a trigger for me. Milkshakes alone are one of the most licensed records of our generation. I’m creative, I’m innovative, I’ve done more and then made my mark on an era of music and style that will go down in history.” But there are bullies, secrets, and gangsters in this industry who smile and smile until someone says enough. So I’m saying it today. I’m coming for what’s mine and I want compensation.”
Since “Get Along with You” is attributed to Pharrell and Chad Hugo, it is unclear whether Bey is legally obligated to clear the sample with Kelis before releasing Renaissance.
Kelis has been vocal about her music rights in the past, and Allegedly in 2020 That Neptune was supposed to divide the profits equally with her but they failed to do so.
“I thought it was a beautiful, pure and creative safe place. But it ended up not being the case at all,” Kellys remembers In an interview with Watchman. “I was told we’d split everything 33/33/33, which we didn’t.”
