Beyonce has gone through some painful times in her life and from this emerges “Lemonade.” This new album has Beyonce sharing what many see as her pain today through her music. Beyonce’s latest album appears to be pointing to her husband Jay Z as the source of her sadness at times and there is no one prouder of Queen Bey today for getting this all out in the open than her little sister Solange Knowles.
Solange once took Beyonce’s pain into her own hands and launched herself at Jay Z in an elevator. This turned into a notorious scene that was viewed by millions around the world via the video clip released. Her sister puts her full support behind Beyonce’s album, as does her mom Tina Knowles, according to The Mirror on April 26.
Many people believe Beyonce was referring to the infidelity on Jay Z’s part with “her not so subtle hints” of referring to “Becky with the good hair” in a song. According to the Sydney Morning Herald today, it’s been a toss-up for folks between Rita Ora and Rachel Roy as to who this “Becky with the good hair” really is.
Beyonce sings that she “regrets the night I put that ring on” along with many other lyrics that seemingly refer to the pain she suffered at the hands of an unnamed man, but it’s easy to read between the lines.
“Looking at my watch, he shoulda been home / Today I regret the night I put that ring on / He always got them f—ing excuses. He only want me when I’m not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair,” which are just a few lyrics of pain that Beyonce sings on this album.
Beyonce’s fans first pointed to Roy, 42, as the “Becky” in the song. It didn’t take long for Roy, who is a fashion designer, to offer up a comment on Instagram via a picture of that “good hair” with the caption: “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. live in the light #nodramaqueens.”
Late night talk show hosts are having a field day with Beyonce devoting a whole album to yelling at her husband. The recently revealed video for a song on this album seems to depict the anger Beyonce had stored up all these years. She takes a baseball bat to car windows as she walks along a city street singing about some painful things that many can relate to in life.
The Mirror suggests that Beyonce even touched on the massive pain she endured after her miscarriage, which is something she doesn’t talk about. The lines: “So what are you gonna say at my funeral now that you’ve killed me? Here lies the body of the love of my life whose heart I broke without a gun to my head. Here lies the mother of my children both living and dead. Rest in peace my true love, who I took for granted.”
You have to admit this is some deep stuff coming from Beyonce, and you can’t help but think about how behind all that glitter and gold of her celebrity life, she spent some of this time in great sadness. This new album is different for Beyonce, but it is a piece of work that appears to be a real piece of her!
