The whole thing started when Jay Z and Damon Dash formed Roc-A-Fella Records. Jay Z was dating Aaliyah who later on started dating Damon Dash. Aaliyah and Dash were to tie the knot but Aaliyah died in a plane accident leaving Damon bereft and mourning her loss.
Damon than faced the issue of Jay Z and him having some creative differences especially as regards who would be signed on to Roc-A-Fella Records.
Meanwhile, Damon married Rachel Roy. She was a fashion designer. Jay Z had a few on-and-off flings with Rachel Roy thereby sparking Damon Dash’s jealousy as well as Beyonce and her sister, Solange’s ire.
The results were not good. Damon invited a different set of people than Jay Z’s choice on the platform that was Roc-A-Fella Records.
Beyonce and her sister also managed to have a cat fight with Jay Z and Rachel Roy in an elevator about a year ago. Solange attacked Jay Z while Beyonce confronted Rachel Roy and gave her a piece of her mind.
Later on Rachel Roy took to social online media to say that this was sheer bullying. Beyonce’s latest song is titled Lemonade. It shows the tennis player, Serena Williams dancing and gyrating.
Lemonade also shows the latest model contest winner admiring her own looks. Finally, its main message is that if life hands you lemons, you ought to make lemonade.
Beyonce presented the message in a beautiful manner as the passing on of a trade secret between grandmother, mother and daughter. This was the lemonade recipe. It showed the strength of family bonding and the resilience of faith in the face of oppression and hopelessness.
Also the images of mothers holding their slain sons’ pics were shown. These included Trayvon Martin’s photo which was held by his mother.
Beyonce’s grandmother’s photo was also shown among the various segments of the music video for “Lemonade”. Jay Z meanwhile has done some rapping of his own in the past to exorcise the demons of his spat with Damon Dash.
