BEYONCE’S pal and collaborator Naughty Boy has revealed the singer was experiencing â€œraw emotionsâ€ while penning her tell-all album Lemonade , which hints at husband Jay Zâ€™s possible infidelities.
The pair have been pals since they worked on their smash hit Runninâ€™ (Lose It All) last year and the British music producer, 31, has revealed that Bey offered insight into her mindset.
He says: â€œI 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.â€
The theme of infidelity is prevalent throughout and cheating is referenced in almost every song, leading fans to worry the 34-year-oldâ€™s six-year marriage to rapper Jay Z is in trouble.
A lyric about going to see â€œBecky with the good hairâ€ in the song Sorry has caused the most outcry, with US TV star Rachael Ray and singer Rita Ora denying theyâ€™re â€œBeckyâ€. Naughty Boy isnâ€™t speculating about the mystery woman…
He says: â€œI try not to gossip about somebody elseâ€™s business. Iâ€™m not trying to read between the lines.â€
Naughty, who was performing at the BBC Asian Network Live concert in Hammersmith, London, admitted he wasnâ€™t bothered that he didnâ€™t get to write for Beyâ€™s Lemonade, with Runninâ€™ not featuring on the track list.
He explains: â€œThat album is a body of work. Iâ€™m sure we will work together again one day. Runninâ€™ is still getting played and people are still talking about it. My contribution is there.
â€œSheâ€™s performing Runninâ€™ on the Formation tour and thatâ€™s amazing. I canâ€™t wait to catch it when she gets over to Britain.
â€œFor her, itâ€™s nice to go from Runninâ€™ to Lemonade in terms of the sound. It shows how versatile she is.â€ – Daily Mirror
