The new record contains repeated references to infidelity, prompting speculation Jay may have been unfaithful, and one line in particular, on which Bey sings “you better call Becky with the good hair” has set tongues wagging.
Rita took to Twitter to address speculation, stating:
Speculation over who ‘Becky’ could be began as soon as fans began listening to ‘Lemonade’, despite the fact it’s perfectly plausible that Beyoncé could be singing about a fictional situation.
Rita then found herself on on the shortlist of 'possibly-Becky's by - wait for it - Snapchatting a picture of herself wearing a bra with lemons on. A bra made by a company she’s literally paid to promote.
Rita’s not the only person who has denied being 'Becky', as fashion designer Rachel Roy has also addressed claims that she may have come between the musical couple.
In her tweet, Rachel, who has previously stood accused of an affair with Jay Z, wrote:
The fact Rita’s perfectly normal snapchat selfie has led to affair rumours has left many puzzled, including The Huffington Post UK’s Daniel Welsh who, in a blog on the matter, suggests another way to interpret the pic.
He writes: “If something as trivial as Rita Ora's brassiere had to inspire a Beyoncé story, how much more difficult would it have been to run it as 'Rita Ora Shows Solidarity With Beyoncé' instead?”
*returns to listening to ‘Lemonade’ on repeat*
