By now we’re sure everyone has seen Beyoncé’s new visual album, Lemonade, but the question on everyones lips is “Who is Becky?”
If perhaps you missed the hype of the past two days, the album details Jay Z’s affair and the Hollywood power-couples path to reconciliation.
During the track “Sorry”, Beyoncé sings “He only want me when I’m not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair.” As usual with her ferocious fanbase, it took the Beyhive only a matter of hours to decode the lyrics and begin pointing fingers at the alleged “other woman”.
Upon the visual album airing, Rachel Roy posted an image of herself captioned: “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. live in the light #nodramaqueens.” Quite clearly taking a jab at Bey, fans began commenting on the fashion designers page so much that she made the account private soon after.
If you are unfamiliar with Rachel Roy, it is worth noting she is the ex-wife of Jay Z’s former business partner Damon Dash. Furthermore, following the infamous elevator incident at the Met Gala 2014, Solange was seen getting into a heated argument with Roy. This lead to media speculation that she and Jay Z were embroiled in an affair with drama going down as they were reunited at the event.
Wether the song is about the designer or not, she clearly decided to take the oppurtunity to get her name out there. The following day she took to Twitter to defend herself writing: “I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.”
Another theory surfaced following, fingering Rita Ora as the suspected mistress. Signed to Jay Z’s label, the rapper helped discover her and produce her album. Mix that with the singer wearing a lemonade bra and a necklace that appears to be the letter “J”, fans believe it to be enough evidence to spam her social media with bees, lemonades and threatening messages.
Who knows if there even is a Becky, but fans are still dragging out further possibilities from Rihanna to Tori Kelly, even Gwyneth Paltrow is being accused! With the constant rumours of Jay’s wondering eye, we doubt we will ever discover the truth!
