March 19 (UPI) -- Singer Keyshia Cole has gone where few people dare to tread, railing against Beyonce's new single, "Bow Down/I Been On," which features an unusually aggressive set of lyrics for the 31-year-old megastar.

"I know when you were little girls you dreamt of being in my world," Beyonce sings on the new track, posted to her Tumblr page Monday. "Don't forget it. Respect that. Bow down, b*tches."

"Can't stand when people all self righteous when it's convenient it makes them look good. Lmao! But can still talk sh** when convenient 2 FOH," Cole tweeted Monday in reference to the "Bow Down" lyric.

"First 'Women need to Stick together' now bitches better Bow. Smh," Cole added. "But it's all G! Chicks stay shooting the sh**. But when I speak my mind its a prob. #Well #StayMad"

"Bey Hive" immediately came to their Queen's defense:

"B*tch you ain't gon need NO more perm kits. The #BeyHive bouta snatch you BALD !!!" one fan tweeted.

"When Beyoncé sings she's Sasha Fierce though, so get ya life," said another.

Cole hit back at a few:

Cole has criticized members of Beyonce's team before. In February, Cole targeted Michelle Williams, one of Beyonce's Destiny's Child bandmates.

"I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michell sung and woke my ass up from my daze!" she said. "She always f---N the groove up."
