Follow the clues..CONNECTIONS between #JAYZ's '4:44' & #Beyonce's #Lemonade! [details]

JAY-Z drops a very PERSONAL and POIGNANT new project, '4:44'.  He EXPOSES a lot and leaves himself out there RAW and VULNERABLE right?  Beyonce TOO let her guard down on 'Lemonade' to expose aspects of her LIFE we never knew.. WE MAY HAVE speculated on, but she told us THE REAL...  Everyone is GASPING at all the TRUTHS these two have shared about there life, the good and the BAD.  BARE IN MIND, this is one of the BIGGEST POWER COUPLES in the game.  These two never make a MOVE that has not been CALCULATED, discussed, rehashed and then DELIVERED to the fans.  So those saying that '4:44' is like an ANSWER to Beyonce's 'Lemonade' wouldn't be REACHING.  I am sure these two WANT us to make comparisons and draw conclusions.  WHY?  It SELLS!  Do I believe this FACTS they've both shared are TRUE---YES.  But you better believe the two have thought through these things CAREFULLY and shared just what they wanted us to know...that is FIRST after getting over the ISSUES themselves.  AND WHAT better way to CAPITALIZE on PAIN that you have HEALED from than to DROP an album and EXPRESS it...

HENCE we have '4:44'---and her are the CONNECTIONS to Bey's 'Lemonade'...after the JUMP!

Now I did not make these comparisons, but I wish I did. Billboard has a few views on the CONNECTION between BOTH projects.

“Kill JAY-Z”

The album opener directly references an incident from the 2014 Met Gala when Beyoncé's sister Solange Knowles and the rapper infamously got into a fight, which was speculated to be about his affair. On the song, he raps, “You egged Solange on / known’ all along / all you had to say was wrong.” Later in the song, he also calls on himself to be a better man by saying, “But you gotta do better, boy, you owe it to Blue.”

The song also speaks about infidelity by referencing Eric Benet, who cheated on Halle Berry saying, “You almost went Eric Benet / let the baddest girl in the world get away.”


In an interview with iHeartRadio, JAY-Z spoke about “4:44” and said, “It’s the title track because it’s such a powerful song, and I just believe one of the best songs I’ve ever written,” calling it “the crux of the album.” With this in mind, it feels as if the song is speaking directly to Beyoncé or following up her Lemonade track "Sorry."

“I suck at love, I think I need a do-over / I will be emotionally available if I invited you over / I stew over what if you over my s--t,” echoing Beyoncé's lyrics on “Sorry”: “He always got them f--king excuses / I pray to the Lord you reveal what the truth is.”

On “Sorry,” Bey also brings Blue into the picture by singing, “Me and my baby, we gon’ be alright,” to which JAY-Z raps, “And if my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do / if they ain’t look at me the same / I would prolly die with all the shame.”

Similarly, the lyrics on “Sorry” say, “He trying to roll me up, I ain’t picking up.” Then, on “4:44,” JAY-Z pleads to Beyoncé to answer her with, “We talked for hours when you were on tour / Please pick up the phone, pick up the phone.”

As a whole, the song seems to chronicle their relationship from her 21st birthday to the birth of their first child, as JAY-Z repeatedly states that he apologizes for all that he has done wrong.

"Family Feud”

The album track, which features vocals from Beyoncé, also features a name drop of “Becky” -- the same Becky referenced in Beyoncé's “Sorry” when she sings, “He better call Becky with the good hair.” On the new track, he raps, “Yeah, I’ll f--k up a good thing if you let me / let me alone, Becky! / a man who don’t take care of his family can’t be rich.”
