Robin S. found out about Beyoncé sampling 'Show Me Love' via social media.

The house music legend has claimed she wasn't contacted by the megastar's team to clear the sample of her 90s' megahit on 'Break My Soul'.

Speaking on 'Good Morning Britain', she said: “It doesn’t have to be confirmed. A singer knows her songs.

“My son called me and he’s like, ‘Mom, mom, you’re trending all over the place! Beyoncé put her song out and it’s ‘Show Me Love’ and you’re trending everywhere!”

However, she is honoured to be featured on a track with the former Destiny's Child star.

Asked if she'd like to collaborate with Beyoncé, she replied: “That’s always [the] dream.”

Robin added: “This message goes out to the Queen Bey - herself - Beyoncé, to Jay-Z, to the entire team. Thank you so much for giving me my flowers while I’m still alive.

“I am honoured and I’m excited to see what else can happen.”

Gurl  This is illegal but because it is Beyonce she isn't gonna say anything   

Doesn't surprise me at all, would've been a small kind gesture picking up your phone and notifying someone if your sampling their iconic hit

it's not illegal, GOD, you are throwing legals terms around like you're an expert.... the authors of the song were credited: Allen George and Fred McFarlane... McFarlane died a few years ago so the cr

Wow she was so gracious about this. What an ignorant thing to do from Bey and her team. 

This doesn't sit right with me at all, I guess I'm not sure if she's missing out on royalties from the instrumental sample (I'm a bit clueless on the technicalities?)

It isn't illegal. Robin is not credited as a songwriter. Beyoncé's record label reaches out to the writers of the song and they get the check and clear the sample. She is not using her voice. She is using the beat.

They think because she's Beyonce and everyone loves her that they can take whatever they want :triggered:

Robin better at least be getting her royalties

I'll be myself until they fūcking close the coffin.

McFarlane died a few years ago so the credit was probably cleared with his family. Robin S didn't write the song so there was nothing to clear with her.

Robin isn't getting anything because she didn't write or produce the song and her voice wasn't used...

Y'all don't know how samples work, and it shows. 

They just hear "Beyonce" and all logic and reason is thrown out the window....

This gives me conflicted emotions, I'm glad she's happy, though. Show Me Love is one of the genre's timeless classics 

Edit: and I hope she's getting her fair share of royalties

kinda shady, you'd for sure want to let the main arist know regardless of their credits just from a moral point of view. she may have no legal power but it's also her song she worked on and would appreciate knowing

Oh I didn't realise that. The way the article is written it sounds like it was her song that they used without letting her know prior.

Unless we already knew off the top of our heads exactly who had what credits and blah blah blah then how were we to know
