An artist sampled in "Drunk In Love" is suing Beyoncé, Jay Z & Timbaland.

Hungarian singer Monika Miczura Juhasz, known as Mitsou, says she was "sampled and digitally manipulated without her permission” on the track. 

According to Page Six, a new lawsuit says Mitsou's voice was used “to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics performed by Beyoncé and Jay Z in ‘Drunk in Love.'"
