One of Beyonce’s latest videos, ‘Heaven,’ shows heartbroken Bey crying through some of life’s most beautiful moments, and mourning a loss that came too soon. When the video emerged on Dec. 13, fans quickly put the pieces together and speculated that her song pays tribute to the child she lost in her miscarriage.
The stunning footage in Beyonce‘s video for her new song “Heaven,” features such happy life moments, but Beyonce is shown trying to smile as she lets her tears flow, her voice powered by raw emotion. Before her now 1-year-old daughter Blue Ivy was born, Bey revealed that she suffered a devastating miscarriage that made her fearful she would ever be able to have children — which may be the background of her powerful ballad.
Beyonce’s Song ‘Heaven’: Is It About Her Miscarriage?
Fans tweeted that Beyonce’s emotional video honors the child that she lost in her miscarriage, and documents the many life milestones they would have shared together.
The song’s fiercely emotional lyrics, “heaven couldn’t wait for you,” haunt the track.
Beyonce previously told Oprah Winfrey that her miscarriage was “one of the hardest things” she had ever been through — and lyrics like “I fought for you the hardest, it made me the strongest, So tell me your secrets — I just can’t stand to see you leaving,” just echo that heartbreaking sentiment.
