Beyoncé’s "Partition" has inspired many parodies, but this new entry into the canon may be my favorite. "Tuition" is a plea to Sallie Mallie to forgive some student loan debt. Chanel Carroll's re-written lyrics are smooth ("Senior year I was 'Flawless,' couldn't touch my crown/ Now I'm going under trying not to drown"), and while the production values are not high, what do you expect? She probably can't afford anything newer than Windows 98, what with all those loans.
This is not the first "Partition" parody tackling the theme, by the way. I'm not surprised.
