BitchTapesBeyoncés Precursor To “4:44”

Last week, Jay-Z released 4:44, his most vulnerable and honest album to date. He bares his soul on the record, rapping about fatherhood, building generational wealth, being unable to escape racism, and—much to the chagrin of the Beyhive—cheating repeatedly on Beyoncé. His confirmation is a little too late for those who understood Lemonade as both a personal journey to healing a broken relationship and an implorative for women, especially Black women, to heal themselves.

This is yet another reason to always believe women: Beyoncé has been singing for years about being mistreated. From B’Day through Lemonade, she’s consistently explored the burden of loving someone who isn’t as committed as she is. This BitchTape celebrates Beyoncé’s openness and vulnerability—traits that translated into her music long before she gave birth to Blue—by sharing her songs that encourage women to know their worth.
