An insider reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that the rap icon, 46, is recording songs that will reveal his version of events surrounding the rough patch in his eight-year marriage to Beyoncé. “Jay is working on an album telling his side of things,” explains a source close to the couple.
On April 23, Queen Bey, 34, shocked fans with the HBO video special and albumLemonade, addressing long-standing rumors about her husband’s fidelity with lyrics like “This is your final warning / You know I give you life / If you try this s??t again / You gon’ lose your wife.” During the 60-minute art film, the Houston native lays bare a deeply personal journey of betrayal and reconciliation, culminating with a final image of her and her husband.
Some insist the film is not autobiographical. “People want to make it about her,” her dad and former manager, Mathew Knowles, tells Us. “Maybe she dug deep and made it about something we all could relate to.” But insiders say the “Sorry” singer’s words speak her truth. “The album says it all,” notes a source close to the couple. “It explains how she and Jay got through their problems. The good outweighed the bad, so she gave him a second chance.”
While this sounds like great marketing, Jay Z making an entire album about how he cheated on one of the world’s most beloved stars doesn’t sound like a good idea.
