Alphabeat ditched then 15-year-old queer singer MNEK in a studio in fresh Twitter beef

From Niki Minaj and Cardi B, Azealia Banks and Lana Del Rey, Trump Jr. and Adam Nippon, to Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

The list of Twitter beef goes on.

On the same day as the apparent ending of the Lady Gaga and Madonna feud saga, a new beef was born.

And it’s one nobody really saw coming.

Dropping a beat

Danish perky pop band Alphabeat announced they were reuniting to drop new music earlier this week (25 February) after a six year hiatus.

The group had previously scored four Top 10 UK singles between 2007-2009, including Fascination and 10,000 Nights.

Their new single was scheduled to drop this Friday (1 March).

‘i stan professionalism’

However, not everyone was buzzed to hear those alpha-beats again.

Riding in fresh from his bop with Olly Alexander, the Valentino singer MNEK slammed the group just one and a half hours after the announcement.

He called out the band on a lack of ‘professionalism’ after working with them 10 years ago.

MNEK accused Alphabeat’s members of walking out on him during a studio session when he was just 15.

He tweeted: ‘remember when u guys had a session with me and left 2 hours in cos u weren’t feeling it? me too, i stan professionalism.

‘i used to stan alphabeat as well.

‘now i just know them as that group with them two white brehs who literally left me in the studio by myself when i was 15, sad.’


It’s safe to say that out of Twitter feuds, this is the feud nobody saw coming.

‘SHAKE THE TABLE,’ one Twitter user said.

Another wrote: ‘Drag them, king.’

It’s unclear why Alphabeat’s then six members weren’t feeling about the studio session, but the band has yet to comment.
