Beyoncé fans were not happy with Jay-Z’s « 4:44 » music video

Beyoncé fans have been very honest about Jay Z’s latest album, 4:44, and his latest video has received as strong a reaction. Much like Beyoncé’s Lemonade, Jay Z has been releasing videos for songs on his new album, and the video for title track “4:44” came out last Friday.

Even though “4:44” has been viewed as an apology to Beyoncé for alleged infidelity, the visual accompaniment to the song is about far more. Bustle described the “4:44” video as “a tapestry of black culture, black love, black struggle, black pride, and black excellence,” and it includes references to Eartha Kitt, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Nina Simone. But as the video features footage of Beyoncé and Blue Ivy, fans of the Lemonade singer have taken Jay Z to task on Twitter.

Not everyone is impressed with the personal nature of the video and song, and the implications it might have on Beyoncé.

Let’s examine why the Bey Hive may feel particularly ambivalent by Jay-Z’s music. For many Beyoncé stans, there’s the sense that 4:44 takes away the thematic anger and empowerment from Lemonade.
