As everyone probably already knows, Beyonce and Jay-Z are one of the biggest and most well known couples in the music business. However, every pair has its issues. For years, there have been rumors spread that Jay-Z has cheated on Beyonce with multiple women on multiple occasions. More light was shed on this situation when Beyonce unexpectedly released her visual album titled Lemonade. Many lyrics from different songs bring up the fact that she was cheated on. In the song “Love Drought” she states, “Ten times of nine, I know you’re lying, but nine times outta ten, I know you’re trying.” She clearly knows that the relationship isn’t as it should be, but still doesn’t want to give it up.

Jay-Z has also began to shed light on the rumors of him cheating, which he admits to be true. In his new album 4:44, which he let Beyonce listen to before release, he expresses how his marriage has started “cracking” due to their relationship not being built on “100 percent truth.” He has confessed that in the track titled “4:44” from the album by rapping, “You did what with who? / What good is a menage a trois when you have a soulmate? / You risked that for Blue?” He even went as far as saying fighting to make their marriage work was more difficult than his childhood living in the projects by saying, “Remember we just talked about me: / I’m from Marcy Projects. / I’ve been shot at. / But nothing is harder than this. / By far. I’m telling you, it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” He knows what he did was wrong and he wants to be able to fix it. He is fearful of the future when his children might come to find out the way he treated their mother. Also in the song “4:44” he says, “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 prob’ly die with all the shame.” Beyonce has clearly forgiven him or tried to fix things. Also in the song “4:44”, Jay-Z said that the birth of his children caused him to see things differently by rapping, “I apologize often womanize / Took for my child to be born / See through a woman’s eyes / Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles / Took me too long for this song / I don’t deserve you.”

A question to many is why are they still together after all this time if Beyonce knew she was being cheated on? There could be many answers for this. Maybe it’s because they have children together and Beyonce doesn’t want them to split for the sake of their children. It could also be because them splitting could cause them both to lose money as a result of not being together. It could be because Beyonce is a Christian and doesn’t necessarily believe in divorce but in “til death do us part.” The reason that makes the most sense to me is that they still love each other and want to work out their issues instead of just quitting on the huge empire that they created.
