The Dream Refuses to Work with Kesha Cole After Beef with Beyonce

Well Keyshia Cole is stirring up troubling dusk and at least one industry producer says he's backing off from working with the singer. Just a few weeks ago Keyshia took to her Twitter account to voice her opinion about BeyoncĂ©'s new song, ‘Bow Down.’ Keyshia stated that artists push certain agendas only when it’s convenient.
Can’t stand when people all self righteous when it’s convenient it makes them look good. Lmao! But can still talk sh-t when convenient 2 [f-ck outta here] First “Women need to Stick together” now b-tches better Bow. Smh
Her response was bothersome to many, especially The Dream, who is reportedly working with BeyoncĂ© currently. He recently told Power 105.1FM’s Breakfast Club Morning Show that even though he has worked with Keyshia in the past, out of respect for his relationship with Beyonce, he has decided not work with her right now.
He said:
I’ve already done records with Keyshia but right now, because of what happened, I can’t. And I think she would respect why I can’t. I’d have a grown up conversation [with her] like, “Yo you’re talking about my family, like you can’t do that.”
I think Beyonce said what she wanted to say [with the record] [...] She got something off her chest.
In an exclusive interview with Marc Lamont Hill of HuffPostLive, The Dream explained further
I always find this thing…especially musicians to musicians…we know our struggles already and we literally just keep throwing darts at each other. I don’t really understand it but she’s entitled to her opinion. Whatever it is that she feels. I have nothing but love for Keyshia. I worked on her last album and we went on a tour maybe two or three years ago, but of course I can’t support it. Of course I would work with her if it came up but I can’t work with her under what’s going on. That’s like with any family member. If me and you become cool at some point and we’re doing what we’re doing and we’re out hanging and I’m playing with your kids and you’re playing with my kids and you’re looking across the room and somebody said something crazy to you [then] I feel it’s my obligation as a friend to sit here beside you. Not if somebody flashes some money at me and I go run over to their side. No. That’s wrong. You clear that up and we’re good again.[...]I just can’t if it is what they’re saying that it is. If it’s a personal type of attack then no. I would hope that [Beyonce] would do the same for me also. I’m just not built that way.
Keyshia's response to The Dream's comments were mild, yet spicy. She revealed that The Dream has only wrote one song for her out of 6 albums... but she did love the song he wrote.
Dream not writing any songs for me is fine… Im on my 6th album… He’s only wrote 1 song on 1 of my albums, which i did love, God Bless
It doesn't pay to bash the Queen Bey, and besides who the hell does Keyshia think she is going against Bey??? She dun lost her mind... you better bow down b*tch!!!
