Beyonce has a song called “Ring Off,” and it leaked online this week, reigniting divorce rumors between her and her husband, Jay Z. According to the New York Daily News, the song might be a follow-up of sorts to “Single Ladies,” where Bey wants to put a ring on. In the new song, the entertainer talks about removing her wedding ring due to a lover’s betrayal… and cue the Jay Z cheating rumors!
“In the mirror you would stare / And say a prayer like, ‘I wish he said I’m beautiful’/ I wish it didn’t hurt at all /I don’t know how I got here, I was once the one who had his heart,” the lyrics read in part. “Until you had enough then you took that ring off/ You took that ring off/ So tired of the lies and trying and fighting and crying/ You took that ring off/ Ooh now the fun begins,” reads the chorus.
Could Beyonce’s “Ring Off” actually be about her relationship? Sure. But would Bey actually put herself out there in such a way? That’s debatable. If she wants to sell albums, she needs to attract buzz, and that could be exactly what she is doing. Don’t forget that her dad sort of spilled the beans on the rumors that circulated before the summer… before Bey and Jay’s On the Run Tour. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Matthew Knowles called it the “Jedi mind trick.”
“I know, because we’ve done this. From experience, there’s a tour going on. So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot… Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%,” said Matthew Knowles back in August.
If Beyonce sings about taking her ring off, that could also be part of the “Jedi mind trick.” Her new album isn’t even out yet, and people are already talking about it… which means, it’s working… whether this was done on purpose or not.
According to Mail Online, Bey and Jay have done a lot of things to prove that their marriage is intact.
“After putting on a united front during their On The Run tour, renewing their vows last month and most recently looking like the perfect family with daughter Blue at the wedding of Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson in New Orleans, many felt the couple was back on track.”
But could the rings be coming off?
