When JAY-Z released his new album “4:44” music critics and fans went gaga over the lyrics. Finally, the rapper seemed to be addressing those rumors that he cheated on his wife Beyoncé, a situation that she discussed in her album “Lemonade.” Fans tried to study his songs like they were studying for a PhD.
