Beyoncé To Remove ‘Offensive’ Lyric From New Album


Leave a comment | | August 2, 2022 3:29 pm

Despite the applause generated over Beyoncé’s new album, Renaissance, a faction of her fans have called her out for using an ableist term in one of the tracks.

Heated, the 11th track on the album featured the lyrics, “Spazzin’ on that a*s, spazz on that as*.”

Spazz is a slang coined from the word “spastic” which refers to a disability that makes it difficult for people to control their muscles especially in the limbs.

Following the backlash that ensued on social media, Beyoncé’s team confirmed via a statement to Variety that the lyric will be changed.

“The word, not used intentionally in a harmful way, will be replaced,” her team said.

Beyoncé will be the second artiste to make this decision this year as popular rapper, Lizzo, was also called out in June for using the same word in her song, Grrrls.

Released on Friday, Renaissance is Beyoncé’s seventh solo studio album. With the buzz it has garnered over the weekend, the 16-tracked project is expected to top several charts by the end of the week.
