Beyonce sets records. In an interview with The sun’90s duo Right Said Fred, which features brothers Fred and Richard Fairbrass, claimed the Grammy winner didn’t ask their permission to use their 1992 song “I’m Too Sexy” on their song “Alien Superstar” from their latest album , “Rebirth”. On Friday, Oct. 7, Beyonce responded to the duo’s claims through her rep. Entertainment Weekly. (POPSUGAR reached out to Beyoncé’s reps for comment on the matter, but did not immediately hear back.)

In their interview with The Sun, the Fairbrass called Beyoncé “sassy”. They also claimed that they could not do anything with the composition used due to the lack of status. “You’re going to be talking to someone who has a lot more presence, power and money than we do. And it won’t go well,” they said. “It’s best to let it go. If you’re not careful, you spend your life looking back. We’re always looking forward.”

Beyoncé has now hit back at the duo’s claims with a statement that notes the brothers have previously thanked the superstar for sampling their song on her new album. “Wright Said Fred’s comments that Beyoncé used ‘I’m Too Sexy’ in ‘Alien Superstar’ without permission are wrong and incredibly offensive,” her rep said, according to EW. “Not only was permission given to use it, but they publicly expressed their gratitude for being on the album.”

On July 22, the officer Right Said Fred’s Twitter account tweeted: “Nice to get credit for Beyonce’s new album.” The tweet went on to share a list of additional artists also featured on the album.

A representative for Beyoncé continued the statement: “On May 11, 2022, their publisher requested permission and the publisher approved the use on June 15, 2022. They were paid for the use in August 2022. Additionally, a percentage of the copyright to Right Said Fred Writers regarding the use of ” I’m Too Sexy” is a significant part of the composition. Collectively, the authors of Right Said Fred own more than any other individual author, and they are co-authors. This accusation is false.”

This isn’t the first time Beyoncé has faced criticism from an artist whose work was included in the Renaissance sample. In August, Kelis claimed her track “Milkshake” was used without her consent. The sample was then removed from the song on most streaming sites.
