Beyoncé’s Album Was Full Of ‘Raw Emotion’ And Wasn’t A Publicity Stunt
There has been speculation the cheating allegations on Beyoncé’s new album was a publicity stunt to drum up sales.
But the singer’s collaborator Naughty Boy has said it’s genuine – adding she was filled with “raw emotion” while recording Lemonade.
Beyoncé’s new record features “every happiness and every sadness”, the producer added.
He said: “I spoke to her last year. She was going through the emotions that a woman goes through. It was every raw emotion and every happiness and every sadness. I knew that album was going to reflect that.
“I try not to gossip about somebody else’s business. I’m not trying to read between the lines.”
The 31-year-old, below, who teamed up with the 34-year-old, above, on his track Runnin’ last year, isn’t worried about not being featured on her new album as he is sure they will work together again.
He added: “Runnin’ is still getting played and people are still talking about it. My contribution is there.
“She’s performing Runnin’ on the Formation tour and that’s amazing. I can’t wait to catch it when she gets over to Britain. For her, it’s nice to go from Runnin’ to Lemonade in terms of the sound. It shows how versatile she is.”
Beyoncé appeared to hint that her husband Jay-Z had cheated on her when she referenced a “Becky with the good hair” as his possible mistress.
Rita Ora and stylist Rachel Roy have denied they are the ‘Becky’ in the lyric.
