It turns out that Beyoncé approved every single track on Jay Z's new album

Becky, however, did not have any involvement in the production of 4:44.

LAST WEEK JAY Z released his new album 4:44. A lot has emerged since the album came out, including the fact that one of the songs addresses his affair, and on another track called ‘Smile’, Jay Z’s mother Gloria Carter came out as a lesbian.

Speaking to The New York Times, producer No I.D. (whose real name is Dion Wilson) said that Beyoncé is instrumental in the production process.

“Every song has to get past her ears”, he shared. “She came by a lot and played a good part in helping us get over hurdles on certain records. Of course, she’s genius-level with that.” We’re sure she had a lot to say.

Twitter user Demetrius Harmon has consistently been making hilarious videos of his interpretation of how the Carter-Knowles family have dealt with the drama of their last two albums.

Here’s Blue Ivy reacting to Jay Z’s new song “Family Feud” where he addresses ‘Becky’.

That is most definitely the scene we had all envisioned going down in the Carter-Knowles family home. Demetrius previously made a video of how he imagined Jay Z reacting to Beyoncé’s Lemonade for the first time.

At this stage, it’s only fair that Beyoncé gets to say what is or isn’t included in Jay Z’s album. It’s in total contrast to Kanye’s last album The Life of Pablo where it seemed like every second song was about having sex with someone other than his wife. Jay Z won’t be getting away with that carry-on any time soon.

Joe Coscarelli, who conducted the interview pointed out that Lemonade raised the bar in terms of the intimacy that listeners expected, especially in relation to the happenings within Beyoncé and Jay Z’s relationship.

No I.D. responded that “if he talks about himself, it’s going to bleed into that regardless. But there’s a difference in talking about it for the sake of response and for the sake of honesty and the truth.”

Despite that, there’s going to be a huge response either way. People were desperately waiting to see how this situation would play out and will undoubtedly be listening out for clues in all future productions from Jay Z and Beyoncé.

In fact, there are probably people waiting for Blue Ivy and the twins to come out with their side of the story.
