Beyonce (Sasha Fierce)’s Management Accused Of Stealing Record “If I Were A Boy”

29th Oct 2008

The young woman who wrote the melody and lyrics for “If I Were a Boy” had no idea Beyonce had even recorded her song until a stranger called with the news. By then, it was too late.

BC (her initials, legend has it, are for “beautiful child”) got a cold dose of reality this summer when it comes to the record business. According to sources, she and her manager/mother have been strong-armed by Beyonce’s people and others who saw gold in “If I Were a Boy” and didn’t care how they got it.

Man, I really don’t know how true is this accusation, but I know I really like this song. I would tell any boy to listen to this one so they’d understand a girl’s feelings.. somehow.

This is the original version by the writer herself, BC Jean.

And this is Beyonce’s version.

Honestly, I prefer BC Jean’s version. I think her vocal with a slight raspy flavor suits this kind of song.
But that’s just me.

What about you, whose version do you prefer?
