Lily Allen isn’t holding back when it comes to giving her honest feedback on Beyoncé‘s new country album, blasting the chart-topper for trying too hard.

During Wednesday’s episode of her “Miss Me?” podcast, the English singer ripped down “Cowboy Carter”… and Lily and her cohost, Miquita Oliver, zeroed in on Bey’s rendition of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.“

Lily, who is married to David Harbour, said that she initially thought it was a “weird” move to redo such a legendary song, in the first place.

In her words, “I just feel like it’s quite an interesting thing to do when you’re like trying to tackle a new genre and you just choose the biggest song in that genre to cover. I mean, you do you, Beyoncé, and she literally is doing her. Or is she doing Dolly?”

Lily is also against the idea of “Cowboy” and believes that the release of the song was completely premeditated. She specifically brought up Jay-Z’s Grammy speech, in which he slammed the Recording Academy for failing to recognize his wife in the Album of the Year category.

While Lily acknowledged that Beyoncé is aiming for the country music industry following her jeering at the 2016 CMA Awards, she thought the entire campaign appeared “quite calculated.”

And the Hive wasn’t even humming from that… Lily ventured to discuss Bey’s appearance, making a somewhat shady comment in the process, “I’m just saying that like, you know, she’s got a great team of stylists, hair people, you know, she works out a lot. I’m sure she’s got the access to the best trainers in the world.”

Yup…Lily, there’s no doubt the swarm will find you! Best of luck
