R&B diva Keyshia Cole is letting her fans know how she feels about Beyoncé Knowles-Carter‘s new “Bow Down” record, publicly calling it out in a mini-Twitter rant.
Hours after the new teaser track sprouted online, Cole questioned Bey’s shift from female unity to treating fellow ladies as her competition.
“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 FOH,” Cole tweeted.
“I done kept it real from the start! #RespectTHAT”
“First “Women need to Stick together” now b*tches better Bow. Smh. But it’s all G! Chicks stay shooting the sh*t. … http://tmi.me/OnGp7″
“How am i hating? no Mamm or sir. whatever u may be. No H8 RT @GothamsKnight_: damn @KeyshiaCole hating on everybody” (Keyshia Cole’s Twitter)
The new track bubbled online late Sunday (March 18) night.
Bow down, b*tches. Beyoncé is back. When you least expected it, the pop icon returns with snippets of two brand new songs. Queen B reclaims her throne on the Hit-Boy-produced “Bow Down,” telling the competition to have a seat. “I took some time to live my life/ But don’t think I’m just his little wife/ Don’t get it twisted, get it twisted/ This my sh*t, bow down, b*tches,” Mrs. Carter proclaims on the heavy-hitting anthem. (Rap-Up)
She also pays homage to her Houston, Texas roots by throwing some chopped and screwed moments onto the latter part of the record.
The song segues into another one called “I Been On,” helmed by Polow Da Don, Timbaland, and Planet VI. A thuggish B pays homage to her Houston roots, chopping and screwing her voice while shouting out H-town legends Willie D, Pimp C, and UGK. “I heard your boo was talking lip/ I told my crew to smack that trick,” she raps, adding, “The capital B means I’m ’bout that life.” Hear B like you’ve never heard her before.

The new track is reportedly her latest music since dropping an album two years ago.
Beyonce is giving fans a special treat with the release of new track “Bow Down/I Been On,” recorded during the sessions for her upcoming fifth solo album. It’s the first new music the pop superstar has released since her 2011 album “Four.” It’s hard to say if Beyonce will release an entire album with a similar sound — or if this track will even make it on the final album — but it’s intriguing to hear her branching out during the recording process.
