Keyshia Cole slams Beyonce over new song 'Bow Down'
Keyshia Cole certainly isn't a fan of Beyonce's new single, "Bow Down."
The 31-year-old singer, who is known for songs such as "Last Night" and "Trust and Believe," took to her Twitter account to get some things off her chest, slamming Beyonce's latest track.
"Can't stand when people all self righteous when it's convenient it makes them look good. Lmao! But can still talk [expletive] when convenient 2 FOH," she Tweeted on March 18. "I done kept it real from the start! #RespectTHAT"
"First 'Women need to Stick together' now [expletive] better Bow. Smh. But it's all G! Chicks stay shooting the [expletive]. But when I speak my mind its a prob. #Well #StayMad," she posted shortly after.
The singer is referencing Beyonce's new song, which was released on Sunday, March 17. The single, which is a gritty, rap-based track that was produced by Hit Boy, features the songstress singing some tough and sassy lyrics.
"I know when you were little girls you dreamt of being in my world / Don't forget it, don't forget it / Respect that, bow down, [expletive]," she sings in one part of the song.
"I took some time to live my life / But don't think I'm just his little wife," she sings in another part, possibly referencing her role as wife to famous rapper Jay-Z.
Beyonce's loyal fan base, also known as her "Beyhive," immediately lashed out at Cole in response to her Tweets.
"Know your place & don't dare try coming for her #BOWDOWN," one Beyonce fan wrote.
"You sound ridiculous and petty. You should take about 20 years off and get yourself together," another fan posted.
In February, Cole took to her Twitter to express her feelings about Beyonce's Superbowl halftime performance ... and again, wasn't completely pleased.
"[expletive] that [expletive] up then Beyonce! Bad [expletive] central," Cole wrote of the headliner. "I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michelle sung and woke my [expletive] up from my daze! She always [expletive] the groove up."
The singer is referring to Beyonce's performance, which included a special, surprise reunion with fellow Destiny's Child singers Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
Beyonce is set to kick off her worldwide Mrs. Carter tour next month. The new track marks the first new music fans have heard from Beyonce since the release of her 2011 LP, "Four."
