American star Beyoncé uses a sample of Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy” for her song “Alien Superstar”. The singer made use of the intellectual property of the musician brothers without permission. Now your management speaks clear language.
Beyoncé doesn’t like that. A few days ago, the musician brothers Fred and Richard Fairbrass of Right Said Fred gave an interview to the “Sun” in which they accused the musician of using their hit song “I’m Too Sexy” as a sample without permission. The song can be heard on Beyoncé’s song “Alien Superstar” from her latest album “Renaissance”. Speakers for the singer now gave their point of view.
“Right Said Fred’s statements that Beyoncé used ‘I’m Too Sexy’ in ‘Alien Superstar’ without permission are false and derogatory,” an exclusive statement for Entertainment Weekly said. “Not only was permission granted for use, they even spoke publicly about their gratitude for being on the album.”
In the statement, the 41-year-old clarified that only the composition of “I’m Too Sexy” was used for “Alien Superstar”, the sound recordings were not used. “The publisher was asked for permission on May 11, 2022, the publisher approved the use on June 15, 2022. Payment was made in August 2022,” it continues.
“Stupid and disrespectful”
During their interview, Right Said Fred called the “Halo” hitmaker an “arrogant person.” It was only after the album’s release that they discovered that “I’m Too Sexy” was used for “Alien Superstar”. In addition, the duo pointed out that artists such as Drake and Taylor Swift have personally requested their permission to sample their songs.
Beyoncé only faced similar allegations in July. Singer Kelis complained that her song “Milkshake” was used on the song “Energy” without permission. In an Instagram video, she described the move as “stupid and disrespectful”. The preview has since been removed from the song on many streaming platforms.
