In case you haven't already watched the whole thing on repeat yet, Beyoncé's visual album, Lemonade, is all about dealing with infidelity in a marriage. With lyrics like, "You ain't married to no average bitch, boy," it seems pretty clear that Bey is talking about a rocky patch in her marriage to Jay Z. He even shows up at the end of the album as she sings about patching things up.
Bey's unauthorized biographer said that it's likely not all the lyrics come from personal experience, and Jay Z reportedly approved the lyrics before the album's release, but still—it can't feel great to have your wife release an album that seems to be trashing you from start to finish.
So if you believe a new report, Jay Z is working on releasing a Lemonade of his own. "Jay is working on an album telling his side of things," a source told Us Weekly. Obviously, this is just a rumor and might not be the real deal, but it makes sense: Beyoncé and Jay Z are nothing if not savvy businesspeople, so why not monetize both sides of a messy personal moment instead of just one?
Although Jay Z is undoubtedly a huge talent, it seems unlikely he could pull of a visual album along the same lines as Queen Bey. A response album would definitely be fascinating, but chances are it would pale in comparison to the force that is Lemonade. Perhaps he'd be better off just sticking to the approximately 1 million businesses he runs instead—and, you know, spending quality time with Beyoncé and Blue Ivy too.
