R&B star Kelis has accused Beyoncé of theft — by sampling one of her songs on her new album without permission.
The Milkshake singer, 42, branded the star “disrespectful” for using October 2000 number Get Along with You on a track called Energy.
On the track listing on Renaissance, Beyoncé is credited as a co-writer with Happy star Pharrell Williams and US music producer Chad Hugo.
Kelis learned of the sampling from a fan page post saying she had collaborated with Beyoncé.
In an Instagram video, she raged: “It is not a collaboration.
“It is called thievery.
“The definition of a collaboration is that we are working together.
