Beyoncé is being criticized for her use of a NASA recording for her most recent album. The song “XO,” features a sound clip from the space shuttle Challenger, which crashed in 1986 killing everyone on board.
In a statement, Knowles said the use of the clip was a “tribute” to the astronauts who died. Still, family members of those astronauts aren’t happy with the choice. Others are not only calling the choice insensitive, but have likened the Challenger tragedy to 9/11.
