Beyoncé and Jay Z are a power couple who are no strangers to divorce rumours. Their status in the music industry often make them prime targets for anyone who wants to tarnish their marriage.
However, following the recent release of her sixth album, speculations again rose about their relationship. Fans instantly took notice of her lyrics in “Lemonade”, the Independent reported. “Sorry” from Beyoncé stood out among the tracks as it called out someone named Becky. The publication cited lyrics from the track.
“Looking at my watch, he shoulda been home / Today I regret the night I put that ring on / He always got them f*****g excuses
He only want me when I’m not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair”
Fashion designer Rachel Roy might have answered the question on everyone’s minds. Mashable reported that Roy posted what could be construed as her slam against Beyoncé. The publication cited her Instagram post.
“Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens,” Roy wrote. Roy has since made her Instagram account private after getting various comments. She tweeted this message afterwards.
One reply to her tweet observed that she might have worn a scarlet letter for throwing shade at “Lemonade’s” lyrics. Hence, another reply remarked that she got the attention she was looking for.
Mashable shared a background on who Rachel Roy is and how she landed an “honourable mention” in “Lemonade”.
