Jay-Z Raps About “Natural Twins” and “Stillborns” in New Song About Beyoncé
In the title track, which is available exclusively on Tidal in conjunction with IHeartMedia, the rapper opens up about his 15-year relationship with Beyoncé and their struggles to have kids. Apologizing to his wife, Jay-Z goes into detail about pregnancy problems while referencing his newborn twins.
“I apologize often womanize / Took for my child to be born / See through a woman’s eyes / Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles / Took me too long for this song / I don’t deserve you,” Jay raps.
He continued, confirming suspicions he had previously cheated on his wife, “And if my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do / If they ain’t look at me the same / I would probably die with all the shame / ‘You did what with who?’ / What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate? / ‘You risked that for Blue?’”
Later in the song, Jay-Z alludes to the couple losing more than one baby prior to welcoming the twins. Though Beyoncé previously mentioned a miscarriage before Blue Ivy’s birth in the 2013 documentary Life Is But a Dream, this is first reference to the loss of children.
“So I apologize / I’ve seen the innocence / Leave your eyes / I still mourn this death / I apologize for all the stillborns / ‘Cus I wasn’t pressing / Your body wouldn’t accept it,” he says.
As reported, Jay-Z and Beyoncé welcomed twins on June 12 in Los Angeles. While the couple have yet to confirm the name and sexes of the babies, rumors say the twins are a boy and a girl.
