Beyoncé Breaks Her Silence On Forgiving ‘Cheat’ Jay Z And THAT Lift Fight
They have one of the most famous marriages in showbusiness.
And now, after rumours of infidelity and explosive rows, Beyonce has hit back at critics of her relationship with rapper Jay-Z — on her explosive new album, Renaissance.
The US superstar’s seventh LP, out today, tells how she has fixed their romance and addresses the cheating rumours — plus the infamous lift incident which saw her sister physically attack Jay.
And she uses its 16 tracks to give an abridged version of life following a series of metaphorical bombs on her previous album, 2016’s Lemonade.
Appearing to refer to the criticism around their relationship over the past six years on Plastic Off The Sofa, Beyonce sings: “We don’t need the world’s acceptance.
“They’re too hard on me, they’re too hard on you, boy.”
She also appears to show a softer side towards Jay, who she married in a top-secret intimate wedding on April 4, 2008 — the fourth day of the fourth month, in honour of their favourite number
Beyonce croons: “Boy, I know you can’t help but to be yourself around me, yourself around me.
“And I know nobody’s perfect so I’ll let you be, I’ll let you be
“It’s the way that you wear your emotions on both of your sleeves, til the face you make when I tell you that I had to leave.”
Beyonce also hints at the women Jay-Z is rumoured to have been with in Alien Superstar and how no one can come close to their chemistry.
She sings: “I’m one of one, I’m number one, I’m the only one.
“Don’t even waste your time trying to compete with me. No one else in this world can think like me. I’m twisted, contradicted, keep him addicted.”
Beyonce, mum to daughter Blue Ivy, ten, and five-year-old twins Rumi and Sir with Jay-Z, recorded Renaissance over a three year period.
