Cutting Lyrics from Wifey
It didn’t end there. On April 23, 2016, Beyoncé launched her second visual album, Lemonade, which talked about Jay Z’s rumored infidelity. Her lyrics revealed details about her knowing Jay Z was cheating. Some examples are: “I smell your secret, and I’m not too perfect / To ever feel this worthless,” and “Uh, this is your final warning / You know I give your life / If you try this s— again / You gon lose your wife.” Most of the lyrics were pretty cutting, some suggesting that Jay Z only has game because of wealth and power, and that without these things, other women wouldn’t look twice. Even so, Beyoncé’s lyrics express her loyalty to Jay Z despite the circumstances, saying, “Y’all know we were made for each other, so I find you and hold you down.”
