Ever since Beyoncé dropped her sixth album, Lemonade, on Saturday night (April 23), the internet has been working themselves into a tizzy about who Queen Bey is singing about on some of the angstier tracks. We speculated about "Becky with the good hair" and the truth to Jay Z's actions, but E! News went straight to family, asking father Mathew Knowles about the subject of the album.

"Let me tell you who she's talking about, can I tell you who she's talking about? She's talking about you. You put that in context for you personally," he said. "She's talking about you and everybody that is you, that's who she's talking about."

"I think that's the beauty of her creativity and I think that's what makes it so special, is that it relates to everyone. Every one of us have been disappointed before and have had to go through the grieving process of anger and, you know, disappointment and then acceptance and forgiveness. And I think that's why this again is touching so many people, because it's universal. Everybody can relate to it."

He gets it. 

Bey's parents have been spilling over with love and pride for their daughter. When HBO aired the Lemonade film on Saturday, mother Tina Knowles couldn't stop gushing on Instagram.

"Toast to lemonade❤️ B worked so hard on this project day and night ! It was soo important to her to offer something that would bring about healing and hope to the universe! No matter what you've gone thru in life you can always come out on the other side!"
