Kelis was one of the first artists, of the hip hop era, to blend genres. As Pharrell was rising in the industry, Kelis was the first artist he signed. When Pharrell began producing hit records, as a part of The Neptunes, Kelis was often singing background.

Kelis also sang the iconic hook of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s classic single, “Got Your Money.” That was one of Kelis’ first major features. When Kelis released her debut album, Kaleidoscope, “Get Along With You” was the final single released from the album. While the song was a commercial failure, it did receive new life.

Kelis’ 2000 single, “Get Along With You,” has received new life. Beyonce’s team sampled it for her song, “Energy,” which is on her upcoming Renaissance album. However, Kelis is far from thrilled about this. Via her company’s Instagram page, Kelis went on a rant about Beyonce sampling her song. It turns out, Kelis did not approve of this sample, nor was she aware of it. In her rant, Kelis said this is not a collaboration, it is theft. As a result, Kelis put Beyonce, and her team, on blast.
