Check out (probably) the deepest dive on Jay-Z’s 13th studio album, song by song on our favorite 4:44’s tracks below. We didn’t cover every track on the album, but most of the tracks had some great Easter eggs. Check it out by clicking to the next page to see each deep dive of the songs.
Stand Out Lyrics: “What’s better than one billionare? Two.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z capitalized immensely off of Lemonade. And though we’re not going to find a ton of reports on it – one of my main fact-supported notions is that they took their pain and made it financially viable. So the fact that they both have made Forbes for stacking the cash, I feel like that they knew if they exposed Jay’s infidelity, they could ride that to the top.
Stand Out Lyrics: “Yeah, I’ll f*** up a good thing if you let me. Let me alone, Becky. A man that don’t take care his family can’t be rich.”
Becky with the good hair, you’re back again! Noting that she was an actual “thing,” mentioning her further solidify’s Lemonade’s accusations. The fact that Bey also sings on the track adds the cement.
Stand Out Lyrics: “I’ll be damned if I drink some Belvedere while Puff got CIROC.”
We don’t know what this means, or if this is a jab to Diddy / Puff Daddy / Puffy / P.Diddy / Whatever he’s calling himself these days, but considering Sean Combs made #1 on Forbes, and HOV made 2, maybe this was Jay’s subtle note that he was coming for the spot.
