Apparently the 2017 Beyoncé and Cardi B collab project was scrapped because it got leaked before it was even finished.
Queen Bey and Cardi B are two of the biggest female artists in the world – a collab would have been lit.
Legit.ng learnt that, according to the producer behind the song, the material was leaked online and which forced them to scrap the entire project.
Michael Ashby aka Ashby The Mix Engineer posted a screenshot of his computer screen on his Instagram Story back in October 2017, showing a mixing programme with a file titled, “Cardi B ft Beyoncé Demo”.
It was him who allegedly let the cat out of the bag too early, and while Cardi B played it cool, denying the lot, it still couldn’t go on.
J White Did It, however, continued to develop behind the scenes. He recently came forward and admitted the whole thing, putting all the blame on Ashby.
“Three years ago I had a Beyoncé play with Cardi and that kinda went sour because it went viral that they was doing a song together and that cut out,” J White Did It explained in an Instagram video.
“I was just as giddy as everybody else (about the collaboration),” he shared, before recalling the moment he knew that project was dead: “I was sitting there just waiting, looking on the Internet, then it leaked…”
Thanks Ashby, we all had to suffer the loss of a Beyoncé and Cardi B collab because of you.
In another news, Legit.ng reported that Beyoncé and Megan Thee Stallion have created the most monumental remix of all time. The Houston babes teamed up and redid the widely loved rap track, Savage. Everyone knows that pretty much anything Queen Bey touches turns to gold, and this is no different.
The reworked track dropped on Wednesday, April 29. Savage became a TikTok challenge known as the "classy, bougie, ratchet" dance challenge and has had over 19 million users participate. Beyoncé got in on it and dropped three power verses in the remix edition. She brought a pure savage class to the track – nothing less was expected from Queen Bey.
