Over the weekend Beyonce dropped her new single Formation, paying homage to being black and enjoying the skin that we’re in… Well, after the video dropped, people started coming out the wood works with claims that Beyonce used an unauthorized documentary for the video without getting permission. Well her reps are now shutting that down.
Beyonce’s reps tell Entertainment Weekly,
“The documentary footage was used with permission and licensed from the owner of the footage. They were given proper compensation. The footage was provided to us by the filmmaker’s production company. The filmmaker is listed in the credits for additional photography direction. We are thankful that they granted us permission.”
