Even the almighty Beyoncé has had to deal with ghostwriter scandals. "If I Were a Boy" was written by San Diego singer-songwriter BC Jean, who only received credit after legal wrangling. Meanwhile, some have suggested that Keri Hilson, who's been credited as co-writer on some Bey songs, was taking shots at her client with these lines from the 2008 song "Turnin' Me On": "You can dance, she can sing, but need to move it to the left," Keri sings, possibly referencing Bey's "Irreplaceable." "Go 'head tell these folks how long I been writing your songs…check the credits."
