Beyonce's 'Lemonade' Special Has Fans Sounding Off
Beyonce artistically revealed new music in her new Tidal/HBO special, Lemonade, that aired Saturday April 23. But, instead of fans speaking volumes about the music, some seem more intrigued by the lyrics of some of the songs and the content from the premiere that suggested marital woes between she and husband, Jay Z.
The visual album for Queen Bee's sixth studio project hit the airwaves Saturday night on HBO and touched on some serious and meaningful topics like her faith, being a black woman, and the most revealing -- infidelity, Rolling Stone reported.
The icon took fans on a journey exploring multiple feelings endured during a relationship where you have been exposed to cheating and hurt. As reported by Billboard, some of the lyrics that stood out were, "You can taste the dishonesty/ it's on your breath;" from the song "Pray You Catch Me," "Can't you see there's no other man above you / What a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you;" from the song "Hold Up," and "You know I give you life / If you try this sh*t again you're gonna lose your wife," taken from the song, "Don't Hurt Yourself."
Fans of Yonce known as "The Bey Hive" immediately responded to the infidelity allegations and geared their anger toward Rachel Roy, who reportedly had an inappropriate relationship with the singer's husband, Jay Z, and was the cause of the infamous elevator attack between Solange and the rapper.
In one of her Lemonade songs, Beyonce addressed the other woman as "Becky with the good hair," and though no official names were mentioned, it was Roy who decided to lay claim to the lyric with an Instagram post that was later removed, but not before the Bey Hive were able to screen grab it and antagonize Roy with several lemon emojis, as reported by USA Today.

The social media attack prompted Roy to respond with a tweet on how she respects marriage.
I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn't be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind. — Rachel Roy (@Rachel_Roy) April 24, 2016
Leave it to Bee to cause all this conversation.
