Jay-Z has just dropped his much anticipated album in which he apologizes to Beyoncé for often womanizing, but one of the most surprising revelations comes on the album’s third track, Smile, when Jay says his mom, Gloria Carter, is a lesbian.
‘Momma had 4 kids but she’s a lesbian/had to pretend so long that she’s a thesbian/Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate. ‘Society shame and the pain was too much to take/Cried tears of joy when you fell in love/Don’t matter to me if it’s a him or her.’
Jay’s mom then gets a feature role on the track with a spoken word performance about her s*xuality, where she tells people: ‘Love who you love, because life isn’t guaranteed’.
The musician dropped his 13th studio album on Friday morning, entitled 4:44. Jay Z’s first since 2013’s Magna Carter.
The album is only available through Tidal, the music streaming service owned by Jay Z. According to international music magazine, The Fader, the title track on the new album 4:44 is a public apology to Beyoncé for his alleged infidelity.
On the track, Jay raps,
“I apologise, often womanize. Took my child to be born. See through a woman’s eyes. Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles.”
