Beyonce will change a lyric on her song Heated from her new album Renaissance.

It is the same word Lizzo had to change recently in one of her songs.

A rep for Beyonce said the word was not used intentionally in a harmful way.

The word 'spaz' has been used to refer in a derogatory way to people with disabilities, particularly those with cerebral palsy.

The word also has another meaning 'go crazy' or 'fight'
