While hosting BET’s Soul Train Awards last week, Erykah Badu called out Iggy Azaela’s music for being “definitely not rap.”

Azalea laughed off Badu’s comment after the show and wrote on Twitter, “We are days from 2016, but I came online today and saw its [sic] still cool to try and discredit my 2014 accomplishments.”

When a fan asked her, “Why you do Iggy like that?” during the singer’s Twitter Q&A Monday, Badu took the opportunity to issue an apology to Azalea.

“I wanna do this for my daughters, I wanna apologize to Iggy Azalea because she’s one of their favorite artists, and they listen to her all the time,” Badu said in a video she tweeted Tuesday. “It’s for them.”

Then she added, “But when I really think about it, if y’all love her so much, why don’t you be with her then? Go on, be with her y’all.”
