Jay Z Finally Responds to ‘Lemonade’
The rapper is taking a page from his wife’s book and letting the music do the talking.
It’s been about a month since Beyoncé released Lemonade, arguably her best album yet, and definitely her most personal. The album tells the story of a couple dealing with infidelity with the singer even calling out “Becky with the good hair.” Fans immediately assumed the album was all about the singers marriage to Jay Z but in true pop star fashion, the couple left fans wondering. We may never know what really happened between the couple, but the rapper is finally ready to tell his side of the story, kind of.
Last night (May. 24, 2016), while Beyoncé and Jay Z stepped out to dinner hand in hand in NYC, the rapper released the remix for the hit song “All The Way Up” by Fat Joe, Infrared, Remy Ma and French Montana. On the remix, Jay Z raps a verse referring to the infamy Lemonade has brought him and his wife. “You know you made it when the fact / Your marriage made it is worth millions / Lemonade is a popular drink and it still is / Survival of the littlest.”
The rapper continued, paying homage to Prince but also subtly referred to that elevator ride he took with Beyoncé and Solange. “Prince left his masters where they safe and sound / We never gonna let the elevator take him down.”
While the remix verse isn’t what fans were really hoping for, if sources close to the couple are to be believed, this won’t be the last time the couple uses Lemonade to rake in the cash.
