Several fans took to social media to share their disappointment with the single, saying that Beyonce appeared to have ‘copied’ Azealia Banks.
One person tweeted: “That song by Beyoncé… a hit by Azealia Banks. She sounds so catchy.”
Another said: “The song sounds like a clone of something Azealia Banks would have done better. Beyoncé should have put Banks in for a few lines of rapping.”
A third wrote: “I hear it and think bank azealia too.. beyonce should stop stealing from the real queen”, while another fan said: “Beyonce’s new song is like a wannabe version of that Azealia bank song.”
Other fans have praised Beyoncé for her latest tune.
One said: “Beyoncé gave us an anti-capitalist, pro-gay summer song with vocals, rapping, chorus appeal and response, and FREEDIA. We do. the victory.”
Another tweeted: “Is it crazy that Beyoncé makes us feel any better just by dropping a BOP? Girl, I can’t even explain how much I’ve missed her over the past few years. over. It feels great to hear her voice again.”
While the third season says, “Beyoncé’s Break My Soul is for gays and girls!! she really gave us the summer song”, while the fourth reads, “It’s a beautiful summer.”
