Not everyone is curtsying over Beyoncé's new single, "Bow Down / I've Been On."
R&B singer Keyshia Cole took to Twitter to vent frustrations about the just-released track, an aggressive meditation on why Bey is queen.
"Can't stand when people all self righteous when it's convenient it makes them look good. Lmao! But can still talk sh*t when convenient 2," she wrote.
While Beyoncé's last record "4" featured female empowerment hits like "Run The World," the new track is bold in the hierarchy it establishes: Beyoncé and everyone else.
"I know when you were little girls you dreamt of being in my world. Don't forget it. Respect that," she sings. "Bow down, b*tches."
Cole dug further at the conflicting ideals.
"First 'Women need to Stick together' now bitches better Bow. [Shaking my head]," Cole said.
But all the pontificating in 140 characters came around to Cole, whose last album was titled "Woman to Woman," thanks to backlash from Beyonce's loyal fans.
Known online as the Beyhive, fans attacked Cole for taking Beyoncé to task. Many referenced Keyshia jabbing Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams in February, specifically her contribution to the Super Bowl halftime show.
"Michell sung and woke my ass up from my daze! She always [messing] the groove up," Cole said of Williams, who briefly joined Beyonce and Kelly Rowland for a medley of their hits at the big game.
