In a lengthy interview with the New York Times, Jay-Z covers a wide range of topics as he openly admits his guilt. In addition to discussing his most recent album, 4:44, which details his affair with his wife of nine years, Beyonce, as well as their subsequent reunion, Jay-Z also discussed why the couple opted to remain together despite the several affairs in that he was involved in on his side.
“You know, most people walk away, and the divorce rate is like 50 percent or something ’cause most people can’t see themselves,” he said. “The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused and then having to deal with yourself.”
On April 4, 2008, the couple married privately in front of their friends and family members.
What Jayz Had To Say About The Divorce
Jay-Z, 47, also said he wasn’t surprised by his wife’s album, “Lemonade,” which spoke about a woman discovering her beloved is cheating on her, among other themes such as race, daughter-father relationships, and, of course, women’s empowerment. “Lemonade” was produced by Beyoncé, and Jay-Z is the album’s executive producer.
Throughout the interview, Jay also acknowledged that he and Kanye West have been working together on the long-awaited collaborative album. Speaking of celebrity divorces, you may also be interested in reading about Eva Marcille’s divorce, which made headlines last year
“We were using our art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together,” he said. “Lemonade” was released first because it was closer to completion, and he said it felt like “she should go first and share her truth.”
“The music she was making at that time was further along,” he continued. “So her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on. Um, we still have a lot of that music. And this is what it became.”
“There was never a point where it was like, ‘I’m making this album.’ I was right there the entire time,” he said. “[We were] … both very, very uncomfortable, but […] the best place in the, you know, a hurricane is like in the middle of it.”
“We were sitting in the eye of that hurricane,” Jay-Z added. “Uh, maybe not use hurricane because so many people are affected now. But the best place is right in the middle of the pain. And that’s where we were sitting. And it was uncomfortable. And we had a lot of conversations.”
