Beyoncé Samples Chimamanda

Most bookish circles have known about Adichie’s work, but it was Beyoncé’s sampling of Adichie’s TEDx speech, “We Should All Be Feminists,” that exposed the 36-year-old writer to a much wider audience. About being sampled on “***Flawless,” Adichie told NPR,” I think that anything that gets young people talking about feminism is a very good thing.”
