Jay-Z apologizes to Beyoncé for his past infidelities and fallacies as a husband in the rapper’s brutally honest “4:44,” the title track off his just-released new album.
“And if my children knew / I don’t even know what I would do / If they ain’t look at me the same / I would probably die with all the shame,” Jay-Z says in song’s closing verse. “‘You did what with who?’ / What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate? / ‘You risked that for Blue?’”
“I apologize, often womanize / Took for my child to be born to see through a woman’s eyes,” Jay-Z admits in the song’s first verse. “Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles / Took me too long for this song.”
