According to the outlet, the two singers worked together prior to “Break My Soul,” when Beyoncé appeared in Madonna’s 2015 music video for “Bitch I’m Madonna.”

Although they have never been featured in a song together, Madonna was already a Beyoncé fan. In a 2015 issue of Entertainment Weekly edited by Andy Cohen, the “Like a Virgin” singer said she saw Beyoncé at the concert and praised her performance.

“She’s a great performer and she does a show,” Madonna says. “She’s a professional, you know what I mean? She ticks all the boxes. She’s great, and everything around her, it’s absolute entertainment.”

Shortly after the release of “Renaissance”, “Milkshake” singer Kelis called on Beyoncé on Instagram for not being “civilized” to contact her before projecting the song on the album. The sample was later removed from the song “Energy”.

The artist also came under criticism for using language capable of singing “Heated”. A representative for Star told Insider’s Ayomikun Adekairo that the song would be changed.
