America Has a Problem is featured on Beyoncé’s Renaissance album, which earned multiple Grammy Awards. When she expressed her thoughts about the album in 2022, Beyoncé said the project allowed her “a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world.”
“It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving,” she wrote on Instagram. “My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom.”

The remix of America Has a Problem features the original beat, synced with new verses from Kendrick. The Grammy Award-winning rapper dropped some lines referencing the ongoing conversation about Artificial Intelligence.
“Hold up, wait a minute / Even AI gotta practice clonin’ Kendrick / The double entendre, the encore remnants / I bop like tin men, the opps need ten men,” he rapped. Kendrick also declared himself as “an honorary BeyHive” on the track.
The duo previously collaborated in 2016 when they performed the Freedom track from Beyoncé’s Lemonade album, People reported. Beyoncé and Kendrick also performed Freedom at the BET Awards in that same year.
On May 10, Beyoncé kicked off her Renaissance World Tour in Stockholm, Sweden. The European tour will continue in Belgium, England, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland. Beyoncé will perform in Toronto when she returns to North America on July 8.
