KT Tunstall has spoken to NME about Azealia Banks calling for her to collaborate with Beyoncé, as well as sharing her admiration for new and rising songwriters.Back in March, Tunstall made headlines when she was namechecked by the controversial rapper when discussing Beyoncé’s acclaimed country album, ‘Cowboy Carter’.

Beyoncé accused of copyright infringement on ‘Break My Soul’

Beyoncé has been hit with a copyright lawsuit over her hit song ‘Break My Soul’.The filing has been put forward by a New Orleans group called Da Showstoppaz, who claim that the pop star is guilty of copyright infringement with her hit ‘Renaissance’ track.The issue stems from Beyoncé’s 2022 song sampling Big Freedia – who the band claim unlawfully used lyrics from their track ‘Release A Wiggle’, which they shared back in 2002.Members of the band, Tessa Avie, Keva Bourgeois, Henri Braggs, and Brian Clark, all filed a complaint to the Louisiana federal court yesterday (May 22). In the filing, they alleged that Bey sampled Big Freedia’s 2014 track ‘Explode’ – however, the latter unlawfully used “copyrighted lyrics, melody, and musical arrangement” from their own track, making the feature in ‘Break My Soul’ unlawful.As well as the ‘Cowboy Carter’ singer, Big Freedia, Sony Music, Jay-Z and more have been named as defendants.“Defendants used Plaintiffs’ words, melody, and musical arrangement from their copyrighted works to create an album as homage to ‘uncle Johnny’ who exposed the music and culture of the LGBTQ community of greater New Orleans, of which three members are strongly affiliated with themselves, all displayed in its full force — the tone, actual words, melody, musical arrangement of bounce music,” the suit claims (via Rolling Stone).It goes on to recall how the song has seen huge success due to it topping the US singles chart, being played frequently on her ‘Renaissance’ tour, and appearing in her accompanying documentary film about the live shows.“Mrs.

Lil Nas X on Beyoncé’s country success: “I wish this would have happened for me”

Lil Nas X has said that he wishes he could have had the success making country music like Beyoncé has had with her recent country album ‘Cowboy Carter’.The artist’s breakthrough hit arrived in 2019 in the form of ‘Old Town Road’, which fused elements of country and trap. However, it was removed from Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, because it did “not embrace enough elements of today’s country music to chart in its current form”, sparking questions about whether this occurred because of his race.However, Beyoncé was widely heralded earlier this year for her contributions to country on ‘Cowboy Carter’ while Shaboozey also enjoyed success this year with ‘A Bar Song (Tipsy)’.In a new interview with the BBC, Hill said he was “happy” for these artists but added: “But I wish this would have happened for me.

Riding with Bey: How Beyoncé got Willie Jones to saddle up in the ‘fourth quarter’ for ‘Cowboy Carter’

“Texas Hold ’Em” singer made a last-minute pitch to country upstart Willie Jones to appear on her new “Cowboy Carter” opus — with the album deadline fast approaching to make her March 29 release date — it was either go big or stay home.“It was literally in the fourth quarter,” Jones, 29, told The Post of recording his “Just for Fun” duet with Beyoncé in the final stages of “Cowboy Carter.” “It was literally … end of February, February 20-something.”Jones got the call that would change his life from Alex Vickery, who produced his vocals on “Just for Fun” — which, despite its title, is a decidedly moody meditation.“She’s like, ‘Are you sitting down?’ I was like, ‘Yeah.’ And she’s like, ‘You know Beyoncé is working on a country album … [and] she loves your voice.’ I was like, ‘Are you serious?’ She was like, ‘Can you come out here tomorrow?’ I was like, ‘Send the car.’ ”And now the Shreveport, Louisiana native is galloping into history as one of the Black country artists spotlighted by Beyoncé Knowles Carter on “Cowboy Carter” — the undisputed event record of 2024 — which just scored the biggest sales week of the year in its chart-topping debut on the Billboard 200. Released to rave reviews (including mine), the LP also made Queen B the first Black woman to reign over the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, while simultaneously holding the top three spots on the Hot Country Songs chart led by her No.

Beyoncé fans are speculating that her next album could see her venture down a rock route.The rumours about potential new directions for Bey arrive less than a week after ‘Cowboy Carter’ dropped – the second part of her ‘Renaissance’ trilogy, which saw her experiment with country music.The album has made countless headlines already, including for Beyoncé becoming the first Black woman to reach Number One on the US country chart with ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’, the first Black woman to score a Number One country album in the US charts, and gathering support from huge names including Michelle Obama and Paul McCartney.However, eager fans are already getting their eyes set on what part three will hold, and many are convinced it will see Beyoncé turn her focus to rock music.Rumours have run rampant for a while, although got a huge boost back in February after the singer donned an impressive mullet for a CR Fashion Book photo shoot. Since the release of ‘Cowboy Carter’, they have continued to expand – particularly after the ‘Lemonade’ singer sent flowers to Jack White, and personally thanked him for how much he influenced her on the new record.As highlighted by Complex, her nods towards the rock genre have also been seen throughout her career, including her close relationship with rock and roll legend Tina Turner, time working alongside Prince, and a surprise appearance at the Coldplay Super Bowl Halftime Show.Now, fans have begun sharing their thoughts on who Bey could collaborate with to make the album into a reality, and shared their suggestions for who could work with her sound.“Now if Beyonce’s does do a Rock album imma need to see Paramore on it,” one fan wrote on X, urging the singer to lock in a duet with Hayley Williams.
