And so it begins — again. Beyonce’s new song “Ring Off” from her upcoming platinum box set was leaked online this week, reigniting rumors that the superstar and husband Jay Z are enduring marriage problem behind closed doors. The new track describes a person left picking up the pieces after a failed relationship — one which may have involved infidelity.
“In the mirror you would stare/And say a prayer like, ‘I wish he said I’m beautiful’/ I wish it didn’t hurt at all/I don’t know how I got here, I was once the one who had his heart,” the lyrics read.
“Until you had enough, then you took that ring off/You took that ring off/ So tired of the lies and trying and fighting and crying/ You took that finger.”
Over the summer, sources told Us Weekly that Beyonce was preparing to divorce Jay Z, just three months after their infamous elevator fight with Bey’s younger sister Solange. An insider told Us at the time that the rapper had a “wandering eye” and that the “XO” singer even leaned on friend Gwyneth Paltrow for advice. (The Oscar winner split from Coldplay’s Chris Martin in March.)
The powerhouse duo have remained a united front in public since then, with Jay Z even presenting a tearful Beyonce with the Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs in August. Last weekend, they attended Solange’s wedding to video producer Alan Ferguson together in New Orleans.
