In one of the powerful new songs, titled “Sorry,” the 34-year-old entertainer slams her lover for being unfaithful with a woman that she refers to as “Becky.” Shortly after the film debuted, fashion designer Rachel Roy took to Instagram and hinted that she’s the mistress in question.
On “Sorry,” Beyoncé, who is married to Jay Z, chants, “Middle fingers up, put them hands high. Wave it in his face, tell him, boy, bye … I ain’t thinking ’bout you!” At the end of the unapologetic track, she jabs, “He better call Becky with the good hair.”
The lyrics quickly went viral as the Beyhive pondered why anyone would ever cheat on Beyoncé, and wondered who this “Becky” chick is!
Roy, 42, was reportedly the root of Jay Z, 46, and Solange Knowles’ mysterious elevator fight in May 2014. On Saturday, the designer posted a photo of herself and one of her pals on Instagram with the caption, “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens.”
Beyoncé’s dedicated fan base immediately dragged Roy as they flooded her Instagram comments with lemon emojis and comments including, “Stupid bitch don’t you know bees sting !!!!!” and “Your hair smells like wet dog Becky!”
The stylist’s Wikipedia page was also briefly hacked. She has since deleted the Instagram photo and made her account private, but fans soon migrated over to Roy’s 16-year-old daughter Ava Dash’s Instagram comments.
Lemonade features a handful of songs about an adulterous suitor, including a spoken word intro on which Beyoncé says, “So what are you gonna say at my funeral now that you’ve killed me? … Her heaven will be a love without betrayal. Ashes to ashes, dust to side chicks.”
