Traffic in the Bay Area can get pretty Fierce.
But it definitely got pretty Heated on the East Coast last week.
According to NBC News, a traffic reporter in Philadelphia had her very own Renaissance on air.
Because if you’re going to report on Bey, you better come prepared.
“If you’re just waking up, I hope you had some ‘Sweet Dreams’ … I just heard a groan.”
With rapid-fire delivery that would give the most pungent puntificator pause, Sheila Watko rattled off a series of Irreplaceable puns.
“…Traffic is getting ‘Heated,’ and it’s starting to ‘Break My Soul’ just a little bit.”
As cool as that was, it had to be even more awesome to get high praise from an OG member of the Beyhive.
Bey’s mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, who reposted the segment on her own Instagram, with the caption:
“This Soo cool !! All Song tittles”
Needless to say, it’s only a matter of time before the “Break My Soul” singer sees it herself.

Renaissance is enough to stop Traffic
Beyonce took zero chances for Renaissance, and made sure to vet everyone.
And not just for their musical chops.
According to Hip Hop DX, the “Break My Soul” singer had very strict conduct guidelines for all potential collaborators.
Specifically, Beyonce made sure there are no allegations against them before she agrees to work with them.
“Her team now run #MeToo checks on any potential collaborators”
Beyonce Vets All Potential Collaborators
In case you missed the entirety of 2017, the #MeToo Movement began as a viral hashtag taking aim at powerful people in the entertainment industry with a history of abuse.
Honestly, you can’t really blame Beyonce.
Back in 2019, one of her former collaborators, Detail, was arrested and charged with harassment.
So it’s no wonder why she’s taking this so seriously.
In fact, Bey rejected two songs from “high-profile” artists over their problematic pasts.
And she’s taking these allegations very, very seriously:
“She’s sending a clear message to the industry in the wake of troubling cases from people like R. Kelly and Harvey Weinstein”
It’s unclear who among her potential collaborators had problematic pasts.
