Jay Z Reportedly Working On Lemonade Response Album
A week and a half ago, Beyoncé released her surprise album Lemonade and famously upended the public’s image of her relationship with Jay Z. The whole album is built around the idea of a cheating husband and a marriage that needs to be healed. And while we don’t know how much of it is autobiographical, if any, it’s still sent rumors flying, especially as to the identity of “Becky with the good hair.” It’s also hard to imagine how Jay bounces back from that in his own career. But it looks like he’ll try!
US Weekly quotes a source close to both Bey and Jay, who says that Jay is “working on an album telling his side of things.” And while the whole thing could just be 15 songs of apologies, I’m having fun imagining a world where Jay was just like, “What are you talking about? I made ‘Big Pimpin’.’ Of course I cheated.'”
Funny Or Die, which apparently foresaw this whole thing, has already a video imagining Jay’s response:
Get me drunk enough someday, and I’ll tell you my theory about how Beyoncé ruined Jay, at least artistically.
