Twitter was flooded with people's reactions to what appears to be a straight up confession...
It was one of the most highly anticipated albums for a while and JAY-Z's '4:44' hasn't failed to disappoint, but the one thing that everyone is focussing on is the serious secrets the rapper appears to have revealed through his lyrics.
Beyoncé's 'Lemonade' album is where the whole rumours of Jay cheating on her began and now it seems that he has admitted it all to be true with a string of references in his new lyrics to 'shame' and 'risking love'.

So what exactly did Jay say on his album that's got everyone kicking off then? Let's take a look...
On one song, JAY-Z raps, "I apologise, often womanise, took my child to be born see through a woman's eyes, took for these natural twins to believe in miracles."
He then goes on to say, "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 this shame. 'You did what with who?' What good is a menage-a-trois when you have a soulmate, you risk that for Blue?"
After seemingly referencing cheating on Bey with two other people and then realising that he has a soulmate in her, Jay even goes so far as to reference Becky, the lady he supposedly cheated with, and Bey's famous 'Becky with the good hair' lyric, saying "Leave me alone, Becky."
During the album, Jay also references that famous incident whereby Beyoncé's sister Solange lashed out at him in a lift, rapping, "You egg Solange on knowing all along all you had to say was you was wrong. You almost went Eric Benet let the baddest girl in the world get away, I don't even know what to say, n**** never go Eric Benet."
Singer Eric Benet was married to actress Halle Berry back in the early noughties, but the pair split after rumours that he'd cheated on her surfaced.
Taking to Twitter, fans have shared their genuine shock at what they're claiming is a confession from Jay and it's fair to say they're not too happy about it...

So what do you make of all these new lyrics and apparent admissions from JAY-Z? We don't think the Beyhive are gonna be too happy, but this won't be the first time Bey's hearing the new songs, so we're sure she'll be ok.
Talking of Beyoncé, we still love watching the inspiration for her 'Single Ladies' music video on repeat...
