After a long teaser campaign Beyonce finally dropped her ‘visual album’ Lemonade this weekend – but one track has got people worried about her marriage.
The album has been well received but one specific track is causing a buzz by implying Jay-Z cheated on his wife, reports the indy100.
The lyrics of Don’t Hurt Yourself have even got some thinking that the power couple might split after eight years together:
Twitter is making it sound to me like Beyoncé just served Jay-Z divorce papers on live TV possibly in song format

If you’re thinking this is all a twitterstorm in a tea cup check out the track, Beyonce’s lyrics can hardly be described as subtle:
Who the f*ck do you think I am?
You ain’t married to no average b*tch boy
You can watch my fat ass twist boy
As I bounce to the next d*ck boyAdvertisement
Twitter also pondered some darker implications of Don’t Hurt Yourself:
OK but like when is the last time anybody has seen Jay Z alive

Pretty brutal Beyonce. It could just be a fictional song of course, but if she’s singing about her husband this could be the most public airing of dirty laundry ever. I guess this could be the popstar equivalent of your mate’s passive-aggressive Facebook status aimed at their partner.
If it’s true that the Single Ladies singer is having man trouble is anyone’s relationship safe?
Jay Z cheating on Beyoncé is really hitting me hard cause…that’s Beyoncé…and I’m me…I am in no way safe
