Well this really doesn’t sound good for Her Royal Highness, Queen Bey.
The 33-year-old global superstar is being sued by a woman who claims Bey used her voice on her 2013 hit single Drunk in Love.
Monika Miczura says her vocals, in a track she performed in 1995 called Bajba, Bajba Pelem, were used in Beyonce’s smash hit, but were digitally manipulated in an attempt to conceal the fact.
The Hungarian singer, also known as Mitsou, filed the law suit on December 12th and is seeking damages. She has also requested that the judge rule that the track cannot be played until her voice has been removed.
In addition to her apparent outrage that her voice was sampled and altered, Monika seems put out by the content of the final version of Drunk in Love, saying: “The sampling is used to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics.”
Both Beyonce and her husband Jay Z feature on Drunk in Love and they performed the track together at the Grammy Awards in January.
Monika Miczura did not personally perform at the Grammy’s that night…
