Call Jim Carey because he may have competition if he ever wants to make "Liar Liar 2." It looks like Beyonce is having a bit of a hard time telling the truth.
Ms. Jay-Z has been called out by two different R&B ladies for not writing songs she claims are hers. According to Rap-Up magazine, Chrisette Michele revealed that Beyonce's hit single "Ego" was originally meant for her own album "Epiphany" but she decided to hand it over to the Queen B. And here is the shady part: The track is credited to producer Elvis Williams, Beyonce Knowles and Harold Lilly ... not vocal Goddess Chrisette.
Michele says, "It was really scary for me to release my pen because I had written my first album myself. You don't know if they're going to be able to capture your voice the same way that you captured it yourself." Oh Sasha Fierce, that's just not nice, now is it?
The day before that story broke, a video blog post (I think the kids are calling them vlogs, who the hell knows) by Destiny's Child ex-member Michelle Williams and producer Rico Love was published as well. The two discussed the songwriting and production surrounding Michelle's "Unexpected" LP, which seemed super normal. Until they brought up Beyonce's "Sweet Dreams" track and various other songs that Rico wrote for her "I Am ... Sasha Fierce" album.
Rico said to Michelle, "I did 'Radio' and 'Scared Of Lonely,' but I co-wrote 'Scared Of Lonely' with Solange, Lashawn Daniels, and Crystile." Wait ... you didn't say Beyonce, Rico? But ASCAP has her name on the song's credits. You little sneaky wig-wearing diva. All it takes is a few measly scraps of your millions, and these folks are happy to give you a good track.
