Beyoncé dropped Lizzo’s name from the “Break My Soul” remix hours after she was accused of sexual harassment

Fans believe Beyonce removed Lizzo’s name while performing Break My Soul Remix because of the case filed against the About Damn Time songstress. A lawsuit has been filed against Lizzo, her product company Big Grrrl Big Touring (BGBT) and dance team leader Shirlene Quigley. Three former dancers have accused the dancer of creating a toxic work environment, as well as sexual and racial harassment. The complaint was filed on Tuesday, the same night Beyonce decided to skip Lizzo’s name out of the lyrics of her song at the Boston concert of her Renaissance World Tour.

The Single Ladies hitmaker includes the names of famous Black women in the third stanza of Break My Soul Remix. The lyrics usually go, “Betty Davis, Solange Knowles; Badu, Lizzo, Kelly Rowl.” However, during her electrifying performance at Gillette Stadium, Beyonce chose to repeat Badu’s name four times. “Betty Davis, Solange Knowles; Badu, Badu, Badu, Badu,” the singer can be heard singing in a couple of fan-shot videos that have started going viral on social media.

However, Beyonce hasn’t said why she skipped Lizzo’s name, Queen Bey’s mother Tina Knowles has stated that there’s no animosity between the singers. In response to one of the fan-filmed videos on Instagram, Beyonce’s mother advised fans to avoid the nonsense chatter online. She wrote, “She (Beyonce) also didn’t say her own sister’s name yal should really stop.”
