The-Dream Read Diane Warren On Twitter After She Threw Shade At Beyoncé’s Track “Alien Superstar” For Having 24 Writers

August 2, 2022 / Posted by:

I knew as soon as Beyoncé released her seventh studio album Renaissance the Beyhive would be ready to fight for their queen if any blasphemy surfaced. Kelis gets the day off. Because today, blasphemy’s new name is Diane Warren, the prolific songwriter who has penned hits for everyone from Aaliyah to Aerosmith to Celine Dion. Diane has even worked with Beyoncé before on the song I Was Here. But to members of the Beyhive, and super producer The-Dream, she’s just some out-of-touch old lady who clearly doesn’t understand the songwriting process and decided to get the Hive going. Because the moment she questioned why one of Renaissance‘s tracks has 24 writers on it, The-Dream led the charge against Diane with a reminder that NO ONE can ever speak ill of Beyoncé  during her current reign.

Renaissance has been playing everywhere, do you hear me? There wasn’t one place I went to this weekend that didn’t play at least one of its tracks, but there is one track in particular that has invaded people’s brains and planted its flag inside their minds titled Alien Superstar. The song is basically Beyoncé  bragging about how she’s the best and you other hoes need to get out of her way. So it’s standard Bey. However, Complex reports that Diane was either being shady or clueless when she asked why there were so many writers for one track. And in hindsight, I’m sure she wishes she Googled that shit as opposed to shaking the Beyhive into anger.

Here’s the song, which features samples from Foremost Poets’ Moonraker and Right Said Fred’s I’m Too Sexy:

Dammit Diane, why couldn’t you have let them have this one? It’s way too early after Renaissance‘s release to question anything their queen has done because they scour the internet looking for moments to put their stingers up and attack. And while Diane definitely felt the wrath of the Beyhive, who knew that the biggest voice in this conversation would come from The-Dream? He was not in the mood for anything Diane had to say.

The-Dream contributed to the majority of Renaissance, including on “I’m That Girl,” “Cozy,” “Break My Soul,” and “Alien Superstar,” which indeed has two dozen writers. Many of the tracks also feature samples and interpolations of classic songs. Warren has written hits for Cher and Celine Dion, among many more.

The super-producer took Warren’s tweets as an educational opportunity, telling her, “You mean how’s does our (Black) culture have so many writers, well it started because we couldn’t afford certain things starting out, so we started sampling and it became an Artform, a major part of the Black Culture (hip hop) in America. Had that era not happen who knows. U good?”

Not only did he treat her to a lesson in the art of sampling, he then invited Diane to a verbal ass-kicking, by suggesting when it comes to the two of them she could never defeat him in a songwriting competition.

It was around this time Diane realized that the Beyhive remains unmatched in its loyalty. So she bowed down, bitches.

And now Diane fully understands the Beyhive’s most important rule: Fuck with everyone but Beyoncé! That’s the only thing anyone needs to understand so be sure to save your criticism for two weeks after her new music is released. That’s long enough for them to break out of her trance.
