The two worked together on Knowles' acclaimed 2012 EP True, which included the Hynes-produced track 'Losing You'. However, it seems there's now bad blood between the pair. After Solange posted a series of angry tweets suggesting Hynes' contribution to the EP had been overexaggerated, Hynes revealed in a recent interview with The Fader that things weren't great between them. "We've spoken but I don't know where it's at," he admitted.
It also transpired Hynes had quit his tour with the 'Lovers In The Parking Lot' singer early, and that he hadn't been asked back to work on her next album. Solange then posted a series of tweets which many conveyed as a response to Hynes' The Fader comments. "The truth always comes to light," she said.
Hynes has now posted a series of tweets (still with us?) which are appear to be a response to Solange's tweets, accusing Beyonce's sister of talking behind his back and defending himself, claiming he's always "praised" her. Read his tweets below:
If you wanna take shots at me text me call me talk to me in person but don't ever drop a subliminal, talk behind my back, or send a flunky.— Devonté Hynes (@devhynes) November 25, 2013
I'm doing myself. Ain't nothing to do with anyone else, I'm about myself, like any self respecting human should be. We live & die alone.— Devonté Hynes (@devhynes) November 25, 2013
I have beef with no one. I won't even mention your name ever again. Any of you. I've said my bit. I've reached out. I've praised you.— Devonté Hynes (@devhynes) November 25, 2013
But now it's done. It's over. We're done. Bye.— Devonté Hynes (@devhynes) November 25, 2013
