Stop Everything: Jay Z Finally Responded to 'Lemonade'

At press time, Becky with the Good Hair couldn't be reached for comment.

It's been a month since Beyoncé debuted Lemonade, an album in which Queen Bey publicly dragged Jay Z for cheating while serving up a) the best music of her career, and b) a hugely important narrative about black women in America. 

The fact that Beyoncé wrote an entire album processing her husband's affair, got him to appear on on screen, and then had him release it on his streaming platform is just too good, and naturally the world has been awaiting Jay's reply. Which can best be summarized by a massive shrug emoji followed swiftly by a bunch of dollar signs.

The rapper released a remix of Fat Joe's "All the Way Up" on Tidal, and his opening freestyle rap references Lemonade directly: "You know you made it when the fact your marriage made it is worth millions," he muses. "Lemonade is a popular drink and it still is / Survival of the littlest."

Huh. Not entirely sure how to parse this, but Jay seems pretty chill—which is understandable considering anything negative would result in an immediate BeyHive attack. He's also reportedly making an album telling his side of the story, but it's kinda like WHAT SIDE?!
