The two are arguably one of the richest couple in the music industry and their flashy life as captured by the paparazzi will have you believing that all is well in the Carter family.
Only its not.
44-year-old rapper Jay Z released his highly anticipated album 4:44 last Friday and the lyrics to his songs have revealed heart breaking details about his marriage to international sensation Beyonce.
Just last month Beyonce broke the internet with the birth of their twins (boy and girl). Her preganancy became a point of interest after she released her album last year Lemonade where she accused Jay Z of cheating. While she didn't say much about the story, in his album Jay Z has not only confessed to cheating but has gone deeper and revealed the ugly side of their marriage.
In the title track "4:44", the rapper fesses up for cheating. He says,
"If my children knew,
I do not even know what I would do.
You did what with who?
What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate,
you risked that for blue? "
Then he says:
"I apologize, often womanize
Took for my child to be born
Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles
Took Me too long for this song. "
This has been interpreted as a direct response to several hints on Beyoncé's last album "Lemonade". In the song "Do not Hurt Yourself", she gave a rather clear warning:
"This is your last warning
You know I'll give you life
If you try this shit again.
This is your last warning
Will you lose your wife."
Even more obviously, in his song Family Fued Jay-Z refers to a piece from Beyoncé's, Sorry where she says
"He only wants me when I'm not there
He should call Becky with the great hair."
"Becky" is the subject of speculation. Many people assume that this is the rapper's other woman. He calls it quits in his song in his song saying, "Becky, leave me alone".
Jay-Z also speaks about his fight with Beyoncé's sister, Solange Knowles, in a 2015 video where she hit the rapper in an escalator. He said,
"You egged as long as you know what you've done,
you'll be able to do it.
You've been provoking so long,
all the time you knew that what you had to say was wrong
You've almost deprecated an Eric Benét [ ex-husband of Halle Berry],
had the most amazing girl Let the world go "
One thing is for sure, the couple is still close and are focusing on their new born babies.
