Rapper Fivio Foreign has said that Beyonce made him clean up his lyrics about women before allowing him to sample a Destiny’s Child’s song.
Ahead of the release of his debut album B.I.B.L.E, Fivio Foreign did an interview where he talked about what it took to get a sampled song cleared.
Fivio has a Coi Leray and Queen Naija-assisted tracked titled “What’s My Name” which samples Destiny’s Child hit song “Say My Name.”
He disclosed that Beyoncé insisted he “clean up” the record’s vulgar content before giving her blessing to use it for his song.
Fivio said: “Shoutout Destiny’s Child, appreciate that, they cleared that joint.
“[John ‘Big John’ Platt] and them. [Beyoncé] had to hear it. She heard it. It was a little vulgar, a little bit for her, at first.
“I cleaned it up, I cleaned it up, I cleaned it up a lot. It was like, ‘You can’t be talking about girls like that!’
“Afterward, Big John and them explained to me, it’s a bigger record now and it made sense.”
