Then, when Jay’s 4:44 album dropped a year later, he appeared to be apologizing to his wife for his past transgressions. While we don’t know who “Becky with the good hair” is, we do know now why the music power couple stayed together despite HOV’s infidelity.
While Jay wasn’t surprised by the album, which detailed a woman learning that her lover had gone astray, he was “uncomfortable” with it. He also said that he felt it was right for Lemonade to be released prior to his album, so Bey could “go first and share her truth.” The rapper added that he is “proud” of all the success and the high marks the album received.
To the delight of many fans, Jay confirmed the rumors that he and Beyoncé have collaborated on a joint album and teased that they have a lot of tracks to be released.
