Hell hath no fury like a Queen Bey scorned

Beyonce and Jay-Z

Before last weekend lemonade was simply a beverage - enjoyed carbonated or still - enjoyed the world over. Then Beyoncé came along, dropped her LEMONADE visual album on HBO (then Tidal, then everywhere else) and changed the game forever.

Yup - ever since the album first aired everyone's been asking questions about race, gender and what the frick went on with her husband Jay-Z. Did he really cheat on her with this Rachel Roy lass? Is 'Becky with the good hair' Rita Ora? SO MUCH REMAINS UNRESOLVED.

So we guess it's down to us to dissect the lyrics and look at all the times she hints Jay was unfaithful, innit? Yeah, let's do that.

'Don't Hurt Yourself'

'Who the f*ck do you think I am? / You ain't married to no average b*tch, boy / You can watch my fat ass twist, boy / As I bounce to the next dick, boy.'

'This is your final warning / You know I give you life / If you try this sh*t again / You gon' lose your wife.'

'I am the dragon breathing fire / Beautiful man, I'm the lion / Beautiful man, I know you're lying.'

'I smell that fragrance on your Louis V, boy / Just give my fat ass a big kiss, boy / Tonight I'm fucking up all your shit, boy.'

'This is your final warning / You know I give you life / If you try this shit again you gon' lose your wife.'

'Hold Up'

'Something don't feel right / Cause it ain't right / Especially comin' up after midnight.'Something don't feel right because it ain't right, especially coming up after midnight / I smell your secrets and I'm not too perfect to ever feel this worthless / How did it come down to this, going through your call list? / I don't wanna lose my pride but I'ma fuck me up a bitch.'

'Can't you see there's no other man above you / What a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you.'

What's worse, looking jealous or crazy? Jealous or crazy? / More like walked all over lately, walked all over lately, I'd rather be crazy.'

'It's such a shame, you let this good love go to waste.'

'Daddy Lessons'

My daddy warned me about men like you / He said, 'Baby girl, he's playing you.'


'Love Drought'

'I've always been committed, I've been focused / I always paid attention, been devoted, tell me what did I do wrong?'

'Ten times out of nine, I know you're lying / 
But nine times outta ten, I know you're trying. '

'Are you aware you're my lifeline, are you trying to kill me? / 
If I wasn't me, would you still feel me? / 
Like on my worst day? Or am I not thirsty enough?'


'Looking at my watch, he shoulda been home / Today I regret the night I put that ring on / He always got them fucking excuses.'

'He only want me when I'm not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair.'

'Pictures snatched out the frame / 
Bitch, I scratched out your name and your face / 
What is it about you that I can't erase, baby?'

'We built sandcastles that washed away
 / I made you cry when I walked away
 / And although I promised that I couldn't stay, baby / 
Every promise don't work out that way.'

'Pray You Catch Me'

'You can taste the dishonesty / It's on your breath as you pass it off so cavalier.'

'All Night'

'Found the truth beneath your lies
 / And true love never has to hide.'
