Beyonce Steals Credit For Yet Another Song


It’s a widely known fact that Beyonce insists on taking writing credits on the songs she sings. It’s also a widely known fact that almost everyone of the actual songwriters / producers eventually make a comment about it. Rob Fusari, multi-platinum writer and producer spoke to Billboard about when he heard Beyonce taking writing credit for “Booytlicious”:
I remember watching Barbara Walters interview Beyonc√© about “Bootylicious,” and she told Barbara about how she came up with the idea for the track. And I was just like, “What?” I called Mathew-which was a big mistake; I got emotional, and I apologized after-but I called Mathew and said, “Mathew, like, why?”

And he explained to me, in a nice way, he said, “People don’t want to hear about Rob Fusari, producer from Livingston, N.J. No offense, but that’s not what sells records. What sells records is people believing that the artist is everything.” And I’m like, “Yeah, I know, Mathew. I understand the game. But come on, I’m trying too. I’m a squirrel trying to get a nut, too.”


The Whore just doesn’t get it. Everybody knows you’re not a songwriter Beyonce, why try to keep the “fantasy” alive when you’re the only one believing it?
