If you're a Jay-Z fan, his latest album 4:44 has probably been the soundtrack of your summer. When 4:44 dropped in June, it made plenty of headlines thanks to the song "Smile," in which Jay-Z discusses his mom Gloria Carter coming out as a lesbian. His mom is also featured on the track, reciting a poem she wrote called "Living In the Shadows."

As pointed out by BuzzFeed, Gloria Carter recently appeared on the podcast D'USSE Friday, where she discussed her involvement with the song, and how she came out to her son.

"Let me tell you how ["Smile"] came about... I was sitting there, and I was telling [Jay] one day, I just finally started telling him who I was," she said on the podcast. "Besides your mother, this is the person that I am. This is the life that I live," she recalled telling Jay-Z.
