Diane Warren responds to 'shade' from fans after seemingly calling out Beyoncé

On Monday, prolific songwriter Diane took to Twitter and asked followers "How can there be 24 writers on a song? That's 23 more than are on mine.". Many people considered the comment to reference several of Beyoncé's new tracks, which credit multiple writers. One person replied:, "Samples and multiple interpolations! I'm a music supervisor and have the clear them sometimes". Later, Diane insisted she was "curious" to know more and conceded that it would make sense that Beyoncé and her producers would credit other artists they sampled from.
