British singer Des’ree is trying to sue Beyonce for covering her 1998 ballad “I’m Kissing You” (you might remember it from the Romeo & Juliet soundtrack) on the deluxe reissue of B’s album B’day (or Bidet as I fondly call it). Apparently Beyonce’s people tried to work out a deal with Des’ree’s people to cover the song, but Beyonce was not pleased with the terms of the contract, which stipulated the song could not be changed and a video could not be cut.

Watch the video of the completely changed song above! Beyonce is so bad-ass, and her version is better. If you want to compare and contrast, listen to the original after the jump.
