We love a good internet theory about the Carter-Knowles family, but this one knocks it out of the elevator!
The sleuth took to Twitter on Tuesday to point out how the numbers of Hov’s album are the same as the location of an explosive, highly-publicized moment from his past — one that kicked off speculation of his infidelity long before Lemonade.
The fan pointed out that the address of The Standard in NYC is 444 West 13th Street — making a decent argument that 444 = 4:44:
Though the numbers may just be a coincidence, as Jay revealed the title came after he “woke up, literally, at 4:44 in the morning, 4:44 a.m.” to write the album’s title track.
But seeing as how most of the album features Jay confessing to his adultery and other indiscretions, this new theory is definitely worth mulling over.
The 47-year-old even references the Solange incident in the album’s opener Kill Jay Z, in which he raps:
“You egged Solange on/ Knowin’ all along all you had to say you was wrong.”
Looks like this theory holds up until he says otherwise! Keep speculating, y’all.
