The whole weekend the entire world has been clamoring to hear Jay Z’s new album 4:44.Fans are taken aback by the brutal honesty that he’s displayed when discussing his relationship with wife Beyoncé.
It’s a response that fans have been waiting for since Beyoncé released her groundbreaking visual album Lemonade in 2016. On songs like “Sorry“, the singer strongly at Jay’s long-rumored infidelities, singling out one unidentified woman known as “Becky with the good hair ” Jay was relatively quiet in the aftermath of Lemonade‘s critical acclaim, and now, it seems, we’ve gotten his response.
With 10 tracks, 4:44 is the shortest album of Jay’s career, and the lyrical clarity he exhibits compliments this. The rapper fesses up to the turmoil that he created in his marriage, rapping lines like “I apologize, often womanize / Took for my child to be born to see through a woman’s eyes,” on the title track. “And if my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do / If they ain’t look at me the same, I would prolly die with all the shame / You did what with who? What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate, you risked that for Blue?”
With those lines it is clear that Jay had finally confessed and apologized to Bey for cheating. Do you think this is genuine or just a publicity stunt?
