NEW YORK: Jay-Z has opened up about his rocky relationship with wife Beyonce on 4:44, his first album in four years.
On Kill Jay Z, released early yesterday, the rapper muses that he almost “went Eric Benet” by letting “the baddest girl in the world get away”.
The line appears to be a reference to R&B singer Eric Benet, who was divorced from actress Halle Berry after he admitted cheating on her. Benet responded on Twitter yesterday, writing that his wife is “the baddest girl in the world”.
The title track appears to be a letter of apology to Beyoncé. Jay-Z rhymes, “I apologise often womanise.”
He raps that it took Beyoncé’s twins, whose birth hasn’t been confirmed, for him to believe in miracles. – ANA-AP
