According to reports, her team’s investigations into her possible collaborators stem from the arrest of producer Detail, who worked on “Drunk In Love”and was arrested in 2020 on 15 counts of sexual assault. Bey was supposedly “devastated” with what happened, and while some may consider the background checks as over the top, the artist “doesn’t care” and wants to ensure that this kind of behavior is not “normalized.”
“She stopped working with him and her team now run #MeToo checks on any potential collaborators,” a source said. “Two songs from high-profile artists have been rejected because of allegations they are facing. Although neither has been found guilty, she’s sending a clear message to the industry in the wake of troubling cases from people like R. Kelly and Harvey Weinstein.”
