The day has finally arrived! After much anticipation from fans, famous rapper #Jay-Z has released his new album titled "4:44."

At the moment, social media is flooded with listeners freaking out about the singer's new tracks. In fact, the fans were the first ones to point out the fact that through the use of his honest lyrics JAY-Z has come clean about his infidelity, a subject he has never talked about before.

It's all in the lyrics

For a while now, there had been rumors circulating that JAY-Z had cheated on Beyoncé, whom he married back in 2008.

Last year, when Beyoncé released the successful #Record "Lemonade" (one of her best works to date), her emotional and raw lyrics pointed out that these infidelity rumors were true.

Now, with his new #Album JAY-Z has not only opened up about the subject, but he has gone a step further and confirmed the rumors. After the release of "4:44", the entire world can read and compare the lyrics from both albums and hear both sides of the story.

The rapper makes his confession in the title song, explaining on the first verse that the birth of his daughter, Blue Ivy, was the catalyst that made him understand the suffering his partner was going through after his actions. He sings "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 the shame."

In the same track he goes on to share a snippet of the conversation in which he confessed to his wife what he had done, "'You did what with who?', What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate?, 'You risked that for Blue?'."

Throughout the rest of the song, he apologizes, expressing his regret and admitting to being a womanizer in the past.

Writing from an honest place

During an interview with US Radio, the artist talked about one of the songs featured on the record titled "Kill Jay Z". He explained that it's about "killing off the ego", that way he could express his feelings with full sincerity and vulnerability.

In this track, he also references the time when he and Beyoncé's sister, Solange Knowles, fought during an elevator ride. Fans had speculated before that said fight had been related to his infidelity. With the lyrics of this song JAY-Z seems to be reminiscing about that moment and admitting that he was in the wrong, singing "You egged Solange on, knowin' all along, all you had to say you were wrong."

To add more fuel to the fire, in this song he adds that he almost "let the baddest girl in the world get away."

Although people on the internet are mostly discussing JAY-Z's infidelity, the new album is about so much more than that, as other fans have pointed out.
