Beyoncé’s Lemonade is an uncompromising album with some surprisingly candid insights into the feeling of marital betrayal. Upon its launch, many fans wondered if the full-length is an honest account of her husband Jay Z’s alleged infidelities. Some fans also wondered, how would Jay, one of the most famous rappers in the world, respond to the thinly veiled lyrics?

With a response album, maybe!

According to Us Weekly, Jay Z is recording new music that “reveals his version of events” within the conversation that Lemonade started. “Jay is working on an album telling his side of things,” says a source.

Insert “spilling the tea” joke here! Although a new Jay Z album is not yet officially confirmed, rumors have sprung up that the rapper’s first LP since 2013’s Magna Carta Holy Grail will arrive later this year.
