New Jay Z music is being released… and a preview clip says lots about infidelity

Mixing art and real-life once again.

For the last few years, Beyoncé has been hinting at husband Jay Z cheating on her.

Just one example? During a show in Ohio as part of the couple’s 2014 On The Run tour, the Queen Bey changed the lyrics during a performance of Resentment to ensure the tune directly nodded to her own 14-year long relationship with Mr Carter.

Then earlier this year – finally! – the rapper admitted in an interview with The New York Times that he “shut down emotionally” … and that that led him to an affair.

Speaking to journalist Dean Baquet, he said: “You shut down all emotions. So, even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can’t connect. In my case, like, it’s deep.

“And then all the things happen from there: infidelity.”

Now the famous duo are mixing art and real-life once again – with the release of Jay Z’s latest chune, Family Feud.

In a snippet from the accompanying music video, Mr Carter is seen ‘confessing’ to Beyoncé in a Church and there are snippets of Blue Ivy, the couple’s daughter, too.

The religious scene is interspersed with flashes of a couple having sex – most likely a reference to his cheating.

The song’s lyrics are telling as well: “Yeah, I’ll f*** up a good thing if you let me. Let me alone, Becky.”

The teaser ends with Jay sitting in a confessional booth… and Bey’s on the other side.

Go figure.

Jay Z, 48, and Beyoncé, 36, wed in 2008 and have three children: Blue, five, and twins Rumi and Sir, who were born earlier this year.
