On the 2nd anniversary of The Carter’s joint album Everything Is Love, the power couple was slapped with a lawsuit.

 

The internet celebrated the release of the surprise collaborative effort from JAY-Z and Beyoncé on the album’s 2nd anniversary yesterday, while at the same time, The Carters were being sued. TMZ exclusively reports that Jamaican artist Dr. L’Antoinette Stines who opens up the track “BLACK EFFECT,” claims she wasn’t properly paid or credited for being featured on the song.

Stines claims that she is well-known for her “her artistry and wisdom” in Jamaica, and that’s why Hov and Beysus reached out to her back in March 2018 to provide dancers in for a video the couple planned on dropping to promote their upcoming tour.  According to the lawsuit which was filed on Tuesday (Jun.17), Stines says that she did get the dancers and that Jay and Bey wanted her to record her views and that the interview would be used in the video for “promotional use only.”
