Sometimes time doesn’t change things or the Beyhive. Miami rapper Trick Daddy is standing beside his 2021 remarks on Beyonce’s singing skills.
“Beyoncé don’t write music and barely can sing her motherf—-in’ self, Beyoncé can’t sing! Man, I watched my godmama train Beyoncé, vocal lessons all her career.”
After making the controversial remarks during a Clubhouse chat, Beyonce’s fanbase, also known as the Beyhive, went after him.
Trick revisited the viral moment while on “The Breakfast Club” last week and explained where he was coming from. He feels the “Alive” singer isn’t on the same level as other female vocalist, like Adele and Jennifer Hudson, Atlanta Black Star reported.
“Out of the ten female R&B singers that came out in the last five years, five of them sound alike. … The HER’s, SZA, Jhene Aiko, I can close my eyes and not know who they are. That don’t mean that I don’t like them, that don’t mean I don’t like their talent, but if I had to a pull a top 10 [or] a top five, I wouldn’t mention them,” he added.
“They took that one piece, and they wanted to go viral, and it worked. And they wanted me to apologize, and I didn’t feel like I had to apologize,” he said in reference to his Clubhouse comments.
The Love & Hip Hop: Miami” star then discussed his opinion about comedian Kevin Hart, saying “I don’t think he’s funny,” added Trick. “Because I grew up on Red Foxx, Robin Harris, Eddie Murphy, and Richard Pryor.”
“This is [the] unpopular opinion movement right now. I don’t think Katt Williams is funny.” He then recalled feeling pressured to apologize by the Bee-Hive, his family, friends, and other business associates. “For the record, I love and respect Beyonce and everything she ever done,” he added.
Trick’s comments on Beyonce caused a frenzy on social media in June 2021. But instead of saying he was sorry for his comments, he chose to explain how he compares Beyoncé’s talent to others.
“To me, a singer is a Stephanie Mills, a singer is a Whitney Houston, a Mariah Carey, and Alicia Keys, and Adele,” he told correspondent Marc Lamont Hill on BNC News. “To me a singer is somebody that can go to church and give you the world. I’m from the South, so singing and sanging is different things.”
He continued, “Have I ever seen anybody perform better than her? No. But I don’t think she’s a singer…She’s a singer, but I don’t think she can sang. That’s my unpopular opinion.”
