There was much Destiny's Child slander when this first dropped in 1999. The all-girl group was deemed a bunch of "man-haters" and Yonkers-based rap group Sporty Thievz even spoofed it — "No Bills (Why, Why, Why)." But before that infectious hook, Bey lyrically breaks it down, "At first we started out real cool ... But now, you're getting comfortable/ Ain't doing those things you did no more/ You're slowly making me pay for things/ Your money should be handling." Or, in other words, dude tried to pull the okie-doke and she checked him. Girl power.
