Beyoncé has a songwriting credit on most Sasha Fierce
tracks. She co-wrote "Diva" with producer Bangladesh and Shaun Garrett. However, there are rumors on the web that the Texan singer did not actually pen the songs herself but employed a ghostwriter instead. Bangladesh addressed this matter during an interview with Bossip
. He said: "It doesn't matter who is writing or producing the songs. Who is delivering them, is what matters. It doesn't matter if Beyonce is there physically writing the song. I mean even if she's not, it doesn't mean that she can't. It might be a case of her not having time."
A further statement by Bangladesh implies that there is substance to the ghostwriter rumors. He said, "People from the outside looking in want to know whether or not she writes her own songs, she's on a level where things are handed to her. People wanna be a part of what she's doing. She either wrote it, or she can put her name on it. It doesn't matter because that's the boss she is."
