Early Friday morning, Jay-Z released his new album (exclusively on Tidal, sorry) and all anyone cares about is the title track, 4:44, and a few other lines floating around the album like truth bombs. It's a big deal for reasons that have little to do with hip hop and more with gossip.
Because on the album, Jay-Z raps these words:
"Yeah, I'll fuck up a good thing if you let me / Let me alone, Becky"
What did the internet do without Donald Trump as POTUS? Well, in 2016 it had Becky. Becky had "the good hair," said Beyonce on Lemonade, and Becky with the good hair had Jay-Z . Extra-maritally. Scandalously.
“He only want me when I’m not there / He better call Becky with the good hair.”
