It looks like confession time has finally come for Jay-Z. During a recent interview with the New York Times Hova officially confirmed rumors that he had been in the process of preparing an album with wife Beyoncé.
According to the Brooklyn rapper, the two artists have worked on the joint project a short time ago while they also both worked on their own respective discs: Jay-Z's 4:44 and Beyoncé's multi-award-winning Lemonade.
Both highly intimate discs containing several references to infidelity, the pair used their music to open up about their private lives. Today, Jay-Z has finally publicly admitted to cheating on Beyoncé for the first time.
Speaking of their personal problems, Jazzy revealed how the collaboration served as a kind of therapy for the couple but wound up not getting released as Lemonade was completed first. He said:
"We were using our art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together. And then the music she was making at that time was further along. So, her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on."
Rumours of Jay-Z's affair came to light a year before 4:44 was released via Bey's song "Sorry," which contains the lyrics: "He only want me when I'm not there / He better call Becky with the good hair." Hinting that his affair almost led to the couple divorcing, Jay-Z went on to add:
"You know, most people walk away, and, like, divorce rate is like 50% or something 'cause most people can't see themselves."
We're still not sure whether this therapeutic disc is set for an actual release anytime soon but it would appear that things are going a little better for the pair now, with Jay-Z picking up no fewer than eight Grammy nominations for 4:44.
