"Resentment" is a song written by Walter W. Millsap III, Candice Nelson and Curtis Mayfield and originally performed by Victoria Beckham.
American R&B recording artist Beyoncé Knowles recorded "Resentment" for her second studio album, B'Day (2006). She covered the original song by Beckham with slightly modified lyrics. It was composed by Walter W. Millsap III and Candice Nelson. This version contained the instrumental of Curtis Mayfield's "Think" from the film Superfly in 1972. "Resentment" is a ballad that shows Knowles' vulnerable side, as she sings about a boyfriend that cheats and lies to her, yet she shows that she doesn't want him to leave her for another woman.
The cover was well received by music critics who praised Knowles' powerful vocal performance and vulnerability. It charted at number 11 on the Billboard Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles based on downloads alone. She performed the song during her revue shows I Am... Yours (2009) and Revel Presents: Beyoncé Live (2012). It was additionally included the 2009 DVD/CD I Am... Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas as the ninth track. File Hashes
