Is Jay Z Finally Admitting He Cheated on Beyonce in New Album?

Rap superstar, Jay Z dropped a new album in the wee hours of this morning and it has got music fans in a frenzy. This is Jay Z’s 13th studio album and it appears to be really personal just like his wife’s Lemonade album.

In the album entitled 4:44, Jay Z confessed to cheating on his wife, Beyoncé Knowles and how it affected her and their first child, Blue Ivy. He also admitted that it took Blue being born for him to realize the value of his marriage, New York Post reports:

The now father of three, expressed remorse for cheating on Bey. In the track ‘Family Feud’, he makes reference to Becky, a name Beyonce mentioned in one of her songs, “Sorry”, from the Lemonade album when she said, “better call Becky with the good hair”.

“Yeah, I’ll f*ck up a good thing if you let me. Let me alone, Becky. A man that don’t take care his family can’t be rich,” Jay Z raps.

“Look, I apologize, often womanize. Took for my child to be born. See through a woman’s eyes. Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles / Took me too long for this song,”

“I don’t deserve you, I harass you out in Paris,” he added in “4:44“. Please come back to Rome, you make it home. We talked for hours when you were on tour. Please pick up the phone, pick up the phone.”

He continued to address his infidelity on the track titled  “Kill Jay Z”. He expresses severe guilt over the thought of his children ever finding out about his mistakes, and the fact that he risked his marriage and family life.

”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 probably 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?’”

He went on in the same track to shade rapper, Future for letting his relationship with Ciara end.

“You almost went Eric Benét.. Let the baddest girl get away… In the FUTURE, other niggas playin’ football with your son,” he says making reference to Future’s son with Ciara, Future Jr., whose stepfather is NFL star Russell Wilson.

Also in the album, Jay Z referenced the fact that the couple suffered through several miscarriages together, and that he regrets not being there.

“I still mourn this death. I apologize for all the still borns, ‘Cause I wasn’t present your body wouldn’t accept it.”

Among the songs in the album is a track called “Smile” where Jay Z also addressed his mother, Gloria Carter‘s sexuality and finally acknowledged that she is a lesbian.

“Mama had four kids, but she’s a lesbian. Had to pretend so long that she’s a thespian. Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate…”

Carter, who had to raise the rapper and his three siblings on her own, after Jay Z’s dad abandoned them when he was young also recited a poem at the end of the track.

She recited:

“Living in the shadow
Can you imagine what kind of life it is to live?
In the shadows people see you as happy and free
Because that’s what you want them to see
Living two lives, happy, but not free
You live in the shadows for fear of someone hurting your family or the person you love
The world is changing and they say it’s time to be free
But you live with the fear of just being me
Living in the shadow feels like the safe place to be
No harm for them, no harm for me
But life is short, and it’s time to be free
Love who you love, because life isn’t guaranteed
Smile”

The 4:44 album was dropped exclusively on Tidal, a music streaming service owned by Jay Z and some other music artists.

The power couple celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary in February.
