Pharrell Williams has been trending in the streets of Twitter since Kelis took to the streets of social media and aired him out like a tire with a nail in it!

The singer and chef blasted the super producer (as well as Chad Hugo and Beyoncé) when she learned one of her songs was sampled on Renaissance.

In two videos, posted on her Instagram page, Kelis held a Neptunes-inspired tea party as she called out Pharrell for his alleged music industry misdeeds.

Watch the video below.

Kelis also wrote:

I just heard the record everyone is saying has my sample. But it’s beyond this song at this point. This was a TRIGGER for me. Milkshake alone is one of the most licensed records of our generation.
 
I am a creator, I’m an innovator, and I have done more than left my mark on an era of music and style that will go down in history.
 
But there are bullies and secrets and gangsters in this industry that smile and get away with it until someone says enough is enough. So I’m saying it today. I’m coming for what’s mine and I want reparations. Peace.

Pharrell Williams’ name has been ringing off in the streets of Twitter as people react to Kelis’ accusations.

One person tweeted, “Kelis deserves so much more than people belittling her imprint on music, gaslighting her about being swindled and a flood of emojis in her comment. She’s been telling that story about Pharrell for some time. And truly trying to use her grief to say she’s lashing out is nasty af..”

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Matthew A. Cherry took to Twitter writing, “It’s super wild that Kelis has no writing credits on Get Along With You, Caught Out There and a majority of her debut album save for a couple songs on Kaleidoscope but Pharrell and Chad do.”
