K-pop fans are discovering an old Hwasa song where fans have claimed that Hwasa said the N-word while covering Beyonce’s ‘Irreplaceable'. The audio of the cover is still available on Melon, users have pointed out. Along with educating idols, it is also the responsibility of giant corporations to do better, K-pop fans have shared. Did the ‘Maria’ singer actually say the N-word?

Hwasa first received outrage from international fans in 2016 for covering the song and saying the N-word especially because a lot of fans believed that the original number of Beyonce did not have the N-word. Later, it was discovered that the N-word is there, almost as a background vocal in the Beyonce number. But why a non-Black singer would search up the word and sing it?

Did Hwasa say the N-word?

In a YouTube audio of Hwasa singing the first verse of Beyonce's 'Irreplaceable’, she sings, “To the left, to the left/ Everything you own in the box to the left, In the closet, that's my stuff/ Yes, if I bought it, n-word, please don't touch (Don't touch)/ And keep talking that mess, that's fine.”



 

A Twitter thread on Hwasa pointed out that the singer sang the cover first on a radio show and the lyrics were given to her on spot. It said, "She sang the n-word on a radio show. She was given the lyrics of Beyoncé's Irreplaceable on the spot. Melon's lyrics has the n-word in it. She doesn't know English, and thus she sang the word without knowing the heavy meaning behind it."



 


K-pop fans are discovering the song from 2016 again and a lot of fans have pointed out that the song still exists on some platforms without censoring her saying the N-word. A user pointed out, "yeah those are the lyrics on melon. It should be changed since it's not okay for non black people to sing it but idk like if she searched for it then she wouldn't know.......anyways it's not my call to talk about it but i still think it should be edited!"

A user opined, "yeah, personally i think it was a misstep on her and her company, especially nowadays..... if its truly the n word (she could be saying another thing and due to accent it sounds weird!) is not okay..."Another user shared, "yeah i saw it the other day too, i think people should bring this up with melon themselves to change it too.... as much as educating idols goes, this also should be to companies if they want to keep making money and such!" A fan shared a screenshot of the lyrics writing "like i went to check and heard it myself!"



 



 



 



 

In another Instance, Hwasa's group Mamamoo drew flak for appearing with 'blackface' in a video that was supposed to be a parody of 'Uptown Funk'. Later, the group apologized for not knowing better. “We were extremely ignorant of blackface and did not understand the implications of our actions,” the group stated and added, “Wwe will be taking time to understand more about our international fans to ensure this never happens again. We hope that you will help to educate us on these and other issues so that we can become better people and better artists.”
