Dropping an entire album all about a man being unfaithful was a bold move for Beyonce — especially since it’s been rumored in the past that Jay Z had strayed in their marriage. Well, the singer has had enough of the alleged cheating, which is why she released ‘Lemonade’ to prove it, according to a new report!
Beyonce’s marriage to Jay Z, 46, is already constantly scrutinized, so many fans are still wondering why she would make such shocking cheating allegations on her new album Lemonade. A new report claims that the 34-year-old wanted to prove a point to her husband by singing about his alleged infidelity, and that dropping the record on April 24 was a last resort to really catch his attention.
“She usually puts on a front that she’s strong,” an insider tells InTouch. “It’s like she finally had enough of Jay and this is the only way she knows how to show it.”
The “Formation” singer has not confirmed that her husband is the actual subject of the very-telling songs on the album, but there have been plenty of rumors about Jay being unfaithful in the past. This time, it seems that Bey’s calling out a specific alleged mistress, referencing “Becky with the good hair” on the song “Sorry.”
Many fans speculated that this ‘Becky’ was Rachel Roy, 42, who reportedly caused the infamous elevator fight between Jay and Solange Knowles in 2014, but when she denied the allegations, attention turned to Rita Ora, 25. However, she, too, slammed claims that she was involved with the rapper, and another report says that ‘Becky’ might actually be a number of women lumped together for the song.
But while Lemonade was reportedly released to prove a point to Jay, it was also a healing project for the singer. “Beyonce’s album is about transparency and healing,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It’s about a lot of heavy subjects, including how women are disrespected and how they should empower themselves, but it’s also about resolution. For Beyonce, making this album was a therapeutic and empowering experience, set with the intention of strengthening their marriage.”
Do you think it was a good move for Beyonce to drop Lemonade, HollywoodLifers? Or is it just putting her marriage under too much strain?
