When life gives Beyoncé lemons, she makes Lemonade. That’s the title of her blistering new visual album, which alludes to issues in her marriage to Jay Z.

Lemonade was released via an HBO special (and later on Tidal) on April 23, and when it comes to the lyrics and visuals, Queen B does not hold back.

‘My daddy warned me about men like you,’ sings Bey, 34, on one track. ‘Her heaven will be a love without betrayal. Ashes to ashes, dust to side chicks,’ she blasts on another. ‘Are you cheating on me?’ she queries on yet another track – while smashing up cars in the video and stating, ‘I’m a f— me up a bitch.’ Fierce stuff.

However, it’s her mention of ‘Becky with the good hair’ in the track Sorry that has led fans to speculate whether Bey is referring to fashion designer Rachel Roy – the woman once linked to Jay Z and thought to be the cause of that elevator fight following the Met Gala in 2014.

Rachel added fuel to the fire by posting a now-deleted Instagram comment which read, ‘Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self-truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens.’

The Beyhive – Beyoncé’s beyond devoted fans – flooded Rachel’s Instagram with comments forcing her to make her account private.

But a defiant Rachel, 42, also hit out on Twitter in response to the online bullying. ‘I respect love, marriages, families and strength,’ she tweeted. ‘What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.’

Talk about drama!
