She may have got a lot of love for the recent unexpected release of her self-titled visual album, but Beyonce has stirred up some discontent for her latest single XO.
The new song features an audio clip from the NASA Challenger space shuttle explosion that claimed the lives of seven American crew members in 1986.
Individuals related to the episode like family members and colleagues called Beyonce "insensitive" for sampling audio from the tragedy.
The 32-year-old US pop star responded to ABC News that the controversial clip was included "in tribute to the unselfish work of the Challenger crew with hope that they will never be forgotten".
