Adding new fuel to the theory that Bey and Jay are now milking speculationabout their marital issues for album sales is a new report that hubby Hov will follow suit and release a project with lyrics offering up his side of things…
An insider reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that the rap icon, 46, is recording music that offers his version of events in regards to his once rocky matrimony-dom with Beyoncé.
“Jay is working on an album telling his side of things,” explains a source close to the couple.
Bey shocked the world with the release of her “Lemonade” visual project, thanks in part to some thinly veiled poetry as well as song lyrics like, “boy bye,” “try this ish again, you gon’ lose your wife” and “better call Becky with the good hair.”
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.”
Insiders say the parents of 4-year-old Blue Ivy nearly split in 2014 after the infamous Elevatorgate incident. In May 2014, TMZ leaked footage of Beyoncé’s sister, Solange Knowles, attacking Jay Z in an NYC elevator at a Met Gala afterparty. At the time, sources told Us, Solange flipped because the rapper had been flirting with one of his alleged conquests, designer Rachel Roy. (She has denied any wrongdoing.)
The Ivy Park clothing company cofounder contemplated divorce at the time, according to an insider. But now the pair are “better than ever,” says the source close to the couple.
We’re not at all surprised by this, after all, don’t y’all remember when these two were supposed to be working on a joint album? We wouldn’t be shocked if Hov drops his half of the story this Summer…
