A UK radio station is not “Drunk In Love” with the lyrics from Beyonce and Jay Z’s latest collaboration. CEO Jennifer Ogole refuses to play the song as-is and has created an edited version for the station. Jay’s line “Now eat the cake, Anna Mae / I said eat the cake, Anna Mae” are causing the issue because of their reference to a controversial situation between Tina and Ike Turner where he forced her to eat cake. Ogole said, “The lyrics controversially imitate a scene of severe domestic violence within the film, displaying promotion of domestic violence against women… We believe in the unity of women and music and in no way condone violence, domestic or otherwise, especially not through the power of music.” As a result, the line has been removed from the song.
