    Keyshia Cole Slams Beyonce’s New Song “Bow Down/I Been On,” Calls Her “Self-Righteous”

    Don’t you dare disturb the Bey Hive!

    Keyshia Cole was hit with more than a few angry messages after she ventured to criticize Beyonce for her new single, “Bow Down/I Been On,” via Twitter on Monday, March 18.

    “Can’t stand when people all self righteous when it’s convenient it makes them look good,” she wrote, calling out the “Love On Top” for her aggressive song. “But can still talk sh-t when convenient 2 FOH.”

    In Knowles’ latest chopped-and-screwed track (the term refers to a specific way of remixing hip hop music), the singer tries her hand at bolder lyrics, including the line in question: “This is my sh-t, bow down, b-tches.”

    Fans of Knowles, 31, immediately took to Twitter to express their excitement over the new mother’s return to the recording studio.

    “Just heard Beyonce’s new song,” one fan tweeted on Sunday, March 17, after the Knowles shared the track on her site. “I feel so bad for every other artist in the game. There is no competition. She reigns supreme.”

    Cole, 31, was apparently not impressed, however. The R&B singer added more than just her two cents on the social networking site.

    “First ‘Women need to Stick together’ now b-tches better Bow,” she continued. “Smh. But it’s all G! Chicks stay shooting the sh-t…”

    Users online immediately slammed Cole for her negativity.

    PHOTOS: Best girl groups of all time

    “Keyshia Cole and Chris Brown are two artists that really shouldn’t have twitter accounts,” one annoyed fan wrote.

    “If @KeyshiaCole put as much energy in her struggle music as she did twitter beefing she would be as successful as Beyon…Nvm,” another wrote.

    Cole didn’t back down from her remarks, however, instead refuting remarks by asserting, “I done kept it real from the start! #RespectTHAT.”

    The “Trust and Believe” singer is definitely no stranger to controversy. Earlier this year, Cole received plenty of hate mail for bashing on Knowles’ former Destiny’s Child bandmateMichelle Williams, 32, for her performance at the Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 3, where the girl group memorably reunited.

    “F-ck that sh-t up then Beyonce! Bad b-tch central,” she wrote. “I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michelle sung and woke my ass up from my daze! She always f-cking the groove up.”

    I agree it’s so obviously not a single and so obviously not soemthing to be taken seriously. This talk of “content” is ridiculous. It’s just a boasting song. It doesn’t need to more than that, because (shocking revelation) different songs aim for different things! 

    Oh, and why should it matter that Stevie and Aretha would never do a song like this? beyonce is from a completely different generation, with a completely different cultural baggage, and with completely different intentions.

    And “classless” really? You’re gonna throw the “taste” argument? Talk about conservative or narrow minded. This song is obviously not to be seen as “classy”. It’s supposed to be energetic, fun, have Beyonce be a bad ass. That’s all.  

    The fact that its a single or not, having fun or not, does NOT change the fact that its still GARBAGE. The point is whether it was seconds, minutes, hours, or days, TIME was spent making this trash. Had this been from Ciara, Nicki Minaj or Keri Hilson people would have been attacking and saying they are making terrible music. Beyonce get a pass for almost anything. And it doesnt matter what generation she is from, she should be making music with SUBSTANCE. She is considered or almost considered one of the “greats” and thats why I used other greats in my example. “GREATS” will make music of substance whether its fun or “serious”. 1)Yes, its classless, 2) hell yeah its tasteless and 3) I am VERY open minded and nowhere near conservative. Dont dumb me down cause I “don’t like something that Beyonce does”. I am sorry, if I like GOOD music. And fyi, I did not attack YOU, I attacked HER (and moreso her MUSIC). Beyonce got people attacking other people for HER ratchedness. This track is even ratchet for a “ratchet” artist. LOL! Again, I do not hate Beyonce, but you and others need to stop giving her a pass for this Sh-t (sorry, best way to describe it). And fun or not, she MEANT what she was saying in this track. She always get people fooled….obviously like yourself. Again, this is trash. Come with something better, OUR future “legend and icon”. SMH

    Those are pretty awful songs, but I don’t think they were meant to be anything more than hype songs, and they’re clearly doing that work right now for Beyonce. When the time comes, she’ll have her more mainstream material ready to go for world dominance.

    ^Agreed- the hype is obviously working! As usual, everyone on here is blowing things out of proportion. Beyonce is one of the most well respected and liked artists around the world and this song is just her having fun. It’s barely even a full song. I personally found it funny.

    It works for Beyonce because she is arguably in the very top tier of female artists. If Ciara, Keri Hilson, etc. did this, it just wouldn’t make sense and the majority of people would dismiss it.

    lol this isn’t a real song. How is this NOT a joke to create hype for whatever is to come. I couldn’t even make it until the end of the song but this will be everywhere the next few days thanks to both the ass kissers and the haters. The songs obviously trashy and without quality because it’s something to get people riled up about. Neither a stan nor a hater and with that said so far it seems to be Beyonce: 1 World: 0.

    I never give Beyonce an easy time. I never liked her first three solo albums (even downright hated Sasha Fierce), and beyond a few singles, I find Destiny’s Child’s albums to be quite mediocre. I do give her a pass for a song with an interesting switch in tempo and her badass attitude in song that is meant to be fun.

    And I’m sorry, “classy” is such a pretentious reason to dislike, whether you’re a Radiohead fan or a Mariah one to dismerit something. Things don’t have to be “classy”.

    You are right….things don’t have to be classy, but Beyonce is SUPPOSE to be classy…hence my point again.

    Yeah… Promo boast song or not, I’m not feeling this one. I’ve tried to get into it, and it’s just not working for me. Hopefully her first official single is completely different and points to the direction of the album, cuz if this is it, I’m not interested.

    Beyonce has been selected by TIME as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
     

    Icons

    Beyoncé

    Diva, 31

    By Baz Luhrmann
    April 18, 2013

    Beyoncé contributed a song to the Great Gatsby sound­track,
    and I worked with her quite intensely some years ago on the Academy
    Awards. When I met her, I was struck by her warmth and her humility; she
    was surrounded by family and was always family-oriented. For the
    Oscars, she had to learn some extremely difficult choreography, and she
    just had that incredible work ethic where she was in the door, hit the
    number, let’s go, let’s work. Just work.

    When all the work is done, she can step onto a stage and draw every
    single person in the audience into an intimate experience. No one has
    that voice, no one moves the way she moves, no one can hold an audience
    the way she does. And she keeps growing and evolving in the ways that
    she expresses herself as a singer, as a performer and now as a mother.

    She and Jay Z are the royal couple of culture, and she is the queen
    bee. She’s gone beyond being a popular singer, even beyond being a
    pop-cultural icon. When Beyoncé does an album, when Beyoncé sings a
    song, when Beyoncé does anything, it’s an event, and it’s broadly
    influential. Right now, she is the heir-­apparent diva of the USA —
    the reigning national voice.

     

     

    Any questions?!
