As news continues to roll in about Beyoncé and Jay Z's pregnancy, I just can't contain my excitement for the power couple's adorable twin announcement. As a means of celebration for the Carter babies, I began to delve back into Bey's lengthy catalog of music and started to suddenly realize that some of the Lemonade lyrics may actually hint at Beyonce's pregnancy plans.
Over the years, the singer has countlessly belted out a myriad of controversial tunes, which have touched on the subjects of infidelity and insecurities in her romance with the rapper. I mean, Lemonade was most certainly one of those telling albums for fans such as myself. There's no doubt that it resonated as a symbol of struggle and strength, as well as served as a beacon of hope for many who may have been suffering through a tumultuous breakup themselves.
However, some of Bey's words on this latest album may have been a signal of quite the opposite — a sign that she and her hubby, Jay, were possibly past the seeming drama and headed in the right direction. And maybe, just maybe, Beyoncé was trying to share a glimpse of her optimism as she was looking forward to adding to her growing family.
Here are a few of the Lemonade lyrics that sparked my curiosity about Bey and Jay's plan to add to the Carter clan.
In this tale, where Beyoncé is seemingly expressing her rage and resentment, she also details her deep loyalty to her husband and reveals that she's always had his back, even when others weren't there for him. She sings,
"Would they be down to ride? / No, they used to hide from you, lie to you / But y'all know we were made for each other / So I find you and hold you down."
She goes on to explain that her love and passion for him is simply like no other and that it shouldn't go to waste:
"Hey, this such a shame / You let this good love go to waste / I always keep the top tier, 5 star / Backseat lovin' in the car / Like make that wood, like make that wood / Holly like a boulevard."
Sounds to me like she is "Crazy In Love" and willing to carry twins for her man, right?
Now, I know what you're thinking… "Sorry" was one of the most popular breakup songs of 2016. How could it possibly have anything to do with procreation?
Her stance on this track is undoubtedly strong, but if you listen closely, there is definitely a part where the songstress shows a bit of vulnerability and even shares a bit of introspection about her uncertain future:
"Let's have a toast to the good life / Suicide before you see this tear fall down my eyes / Me and my baby, we gon' be alright / We gon' live a good life"
And although, she has her middle finger up and proclaims to not be thinking about her former flame, her tone offers a bit of concern. However, Bey continues to hold her head up, pledging to give her child a good life with or without him. It appears that the single lady that lives inside of Bey would definitely have no problems with being a single mama, if necessary.
"Cause you, you, you, you and me could move a mountain / You, you, you, you and me could calm a war down / You, you, you, you and me could make it rain now / You, you, you, you and me would stop this love drought."
At this point in the Lemonade album, Queen Bey, although still feeling a bit jilted, seems to be moving toward a reconciliation with her famous hubs. In the chorus of "Love Drought," the 35-year-old megastar, hints at rekindling the love that she shares with the hip-hop mogul, explaining that together they can do just about anything. I'm going to assume that giving birth to twins just may be on that "to do" list — right after moving mountains, ending the "drought," and all that stuff.
"All night long ... / All I wanna, ain't no other / We together, I remember / Sweet love all night long"
This love ballad symbolizes the point where the couple, who was once having major issues at the beginning of the album, is going to make it after all. Beyoncé expresses her faith in the union, despite previous doubts stemming from her bae's suspected infidelities and shares her plans for breathing life (and, maybe twins?) back into their relationship — all night long.
"I'm so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces / My daddy Alabama, momma Louisiana / You mix that negro with that Creole, make a Texas 'bama / I like my baby hair with baby hair and afros / I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils / Earned all this money, but they never take the country out me"
Although sometimes slated as an ode to both the Black Lives Matter and feminist movements, "Formation" also touches on the singer's relationship with her family as a whole. As the last track on the album, the powerful song also symbolizes Bey's sense of self-love, as well as the love she holds for her heritage, husband, and daughter, Blue Ivy.
The soon-to-be mother of three, specifically wraps up one of the lingering themes of the iconic Lemonade album and puts her stamp on the Carters' undeniable domination as a power couple — which says that they can pretty much do anything they want — including shocking the entire world with their super exciting "two babies on board" news.
I guess she'll have that hot sauce in her baby bag... #Swag?
Congrats to the Carter Family.
