Jay-Z Says His Marriage to Beyonce Wasn't 'Totally Built on the 100 Percent Truth'

Jay-Z is giving a glimpse into his life with Beyonce after nine years of marriage.

“This is my real life. I just ran into this place and we built this big, beautiful mansion of a relationship that wasn’t totally built on the 100 percent truth and it starts cracking,” the 47-year-old rapper said (via E! News) during a video released by Tidal on Monday. “Things start happening that the public can see. Then we had to get to a point of ‘OK, tear this down and let’s start from the beginning.’ It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.”

Jay-Z then described a turning point for him in the relationship.

“I was on a boat, and I had the best time,” he continued. “I was like, ‘Man, this is great.’ Then she had to leave. I was, like, crushed. ‘Man, I don’t even feel like this. What is happening to my body right now?’ I don’t even feel like this. Did I just say, ‘Don’t leave?’”

“We’ve been in that space where we just got to the place that in order for this to work, it can’t be fake—not once. I’m not saying it wasn’t uncomfortable because obviously it was, but because we’ve been doing it for so long it was less uncomfortable,” Jay-Z concluded.

Jay-Z seemingly referenced cheating in one of the songs on his album 4:44.

Jesse Williams Spills on Aryn Drake-Lee Divorce in Jay Z's 'Footnotes for 4:44' Video

Jesse Williams is opening up about his divorce from Aryn Drake-Lee back in April.

The 35-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actor and his now ex-wife called it quits after nearly five years of marriage.

Jesse has reportedly been fighting for joint physical and legal custody of their children – Sadie, 4, and Maceo, 21 months.

“I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not 5 years, not 7 years, 13 years,” Jesse said in Jay Z‘s “Footnotes for 4:44” video (via E! News).

“All of a sudden mother f–kers are writing think-pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship – like thee most painful experience I’ve had in my life like with a person I’ve loved with all of my heart – that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute,” he added.

Chris Rock, Will Smith, Kendrick Lamar, Anthony Anderson, Aziz Ansari, and more also open up about their relationships in the 11-minute Tidal video.

Jay-Z's Album '4:44' Is Streaming Everywhere, Except Spotify

Jay-Z fans who are not Tidal users are in luck as his album 4:44 is now available to download on iTunes or stream on all services, except Spotify.

The album dropped a week ago as a Tidal exclusive and Sprint gifted a lot of free copies to fans while supplies lasted.

If you didn’t grab a free copy in time, you can stream the album on Apple Music, Amazon Music Unlimited, and of course Tidal.

Jay took his entire catalog off Spotify back in April, so it’s not too surprising that the album is not on there.

The physical version of 4:44 features three bonus tracks, including one that his daughter Blue Ivy raps on!

Blue Ivy's Freestyle Rap Leaks Online - Read the Lyrics!

Blue Ivy Carter may only be five, but she knows how to spit some rhymes and she raps on a bonus track featured on her dad Jay-Z‘s new album 4:44!

“Blue’s Freestyle/We Family” has leaked online and Blue sounds so adorable rapping on the song.

“Everything everything this my only single thing / Everything I hear is my answer,” Blue raps. Seemingly referencing breakthroughs for women, she raps, “Never seen a ceiling in my whole life.”

The verse ends with Beyonce‘s daughter repeating “Boom shakalaka” over and over.

“I listened to JAY’s s—, that 4:44,” 50 Cent said in the video. “I thought the s— was aight, you know what I’m sayin’? I liked the s—. But I’ma keep it 100: The s— was a little, the s— was too smart. I felt like I was supposed to be wearing glasses and s—, and tie a f—ing sweater around my waist. It was like Ivy League s—.”

Earlier that same day, 4:44 went platinum in less than a week since Jay dropped it.

50 Cent went on to slam Jay‘s age saying an artist “can’t be the best rapper at 47” before calling songs on the album was “like golf course music.”
