In an interview with E!, Beyonce’s father, Mathew Knowles, says he knows who ‘Becky’ is. As previously reported, Beyonce sings about ‘Becky with the good hair’ on her new song ‘Sorry’. Of the mysterious line, Mathew says,
Let me tell you who she’s talking about, can I tell you who she’s talking about? She’s talking about you. You put that in context for you personally. She’s talking about you and everybody that is you, that’s who she’s talking about.
He also addressed whether or not the lyrical content on Lemonade had any reflection of the rumored turmoil between his daughter and son-in-law, Jay Z.
I think that’s the beauty of her creativity and I think that’s what makes it so special, is that it relates to everyone. Every one of us have been disappointed before and have had to go through the grieving process of anger and, you know, disappointment and then acceptance and forgiveness. And I think that’s why this again is touching so many people, because it’s universal. Everybody can relate to it.
