Beyoncé's "Becky with the Good Hair" Lyric Finally Explained

Songwriter Diana Gordon spills the truth.

If there's one lyric from a song this year that will echo way beyond 2016, it's Beyoncé's "You better call Becky with the good hair."

The line—which concludes her latest single "Sorry"—immediately sparked a witch hunt for the supposed female with whom Jay Z allegedly had an affair. Designer Rachel Roy ended up in the firing line, and everyone from Rita Ora to Taylor Swift were considered candidates by fans online.

But Diana Gordon—formerly known by the stage name Wynter Gordon—who was the main writer behind the song, has basically confirmed that Becky isn't anyone in particular.

"I laughed, like this is so silly. Where are we living?" Gordon said to Entertainment Weekly about the song. "I was like, 'What day in age from that lyric do you get all of this information? Is it really telling you all that much, accusing people?'"

When asked if she had spoken to Beyoncé about the reaction to the song, Gordon said: "I don't think she expected it."

"I saw her at her Formation tour. She had a pyjama party; we laughed, we danced, we hugged it out. But I didn't say much about it at the time because I wanted to give her space," she explained.

"The idea started in my mind but it's not mine anymore. It was very funny and amusing to me to watch it spread over the world."

"If it's not going to be me saying it, and the one person in the world who can say it is Beyoncé, I was f*cking happy. With Beyoncé, I feel like the songs we worked on were specifically for her."

"Sorry" was included on Beyoncé's blockbuster album Lemonade earlier this year, which went straight to No.1 in the U.K. and U.S.
