Beyoncé's seventh studio album, 'Renaissance,' is set to drop on July 29. But it was leaked online 36 hours before its official release, prompting reactions from fans. The album features many sampled artists such as Donna Summer, Big Freedia and James Brown. But another artist who was sampled, Kelis, apparently didn't sign off on it. She shared her frustrations in the comments of an Instagram post that revealed her sample. "My mind is blown too because the level of disrespect and utter ignorance of all 3 parties involved is astounding."
