We have been dying to know who “Becky with the good hair” really is—and finally it has been revealed!
Beyoncé made reference to the mysterious woman in “Sorry,” a track from her latest album, Lemonade. Many have speculated that Becky alludes to someone Beyoncé’s husband Jay Z may have had an affair with. Multiple celebrities have been rumored to be the infamous Becky, with stars like Rachel Roy and Rita Ora at the center of the controversy following the song's release.
Now, one of the main songwriters who worked on “Sorry” has come forward to set the record straight—that Becky refers to no one person in particular. Songwriter Diana Gordon explained to Entertainment Weekly, “I laughed, like this is so silly. Where are we living? I was like, ‘What day in age from that lyric do you get all of this information? Is it really telling you all that much, accusing people?’”
It seems Beyoncé didn’t think the public would react the way they did to the Becky line. Gordon added, “I don’t think she expected it.”
We’re glad we know the true identity (or lack thereof) of the infamous Becky. Hopefully the rumors about the other woman in Jay Z’s alleged affair can end, and Queen B and her family can enjoy Lemonade’s success without all the drama!
