That brings us to the Twitter reacts of people who’ve been listening to 4:44, and this song in particular. On the track, JAY-Z shockingly admitted to cheating on his wife Beyoncé before and during their marriage. He also talks about this on another songs “Family Feud” and “Kill Jay Z.” We guess her Lemonade album really was based on facts. Yikes. “I harass you out in Paris/ Please come back to Rome/ You make it home/ We talked for hours when you were on tour,” the rapper spits on “4:44.” “Please pick up the phone, pick up the phone/ Said don’t embarrass me instead of be mine/ That was my proposal for us to go steady/ That was your 21st birthday/ You mature faster than me/ I wasn’t ready/So I apologize.”
He continued: “I apologize to all the woman whom I/ Toyed with you emotions because I was emotionless/ I apologize ‘cus at your best you are love/ And because I fall short of what I say I’m all about/ Your eyes leave with the soul that your body once housed/ And you stare blankly into space/ Thinking about all the time you wasted in on all the basic s**t so/ I apologize.”
In the third verse, JAY-Z adds: “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/ ‘You did what with who?’/ What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate? ‘You risked that for Blue?'”
Fans can hear 4:44 from top to bottom in its entirety all day — the way JAY-Z wants his fans to experience this new album — on radio stations across the country, and on iHeartRadio’s The Beat, beginning Friday, June 30th at midnight.
