Well, it seems as though the sentiment that 2016 was garbage, and 2017 would be better, might actually be true. On Wednesday, singer Beyoncé announced that she and husband Jay Z are expecting again — and this time, the singer is pregnant with twins. While we've all been busy basking in the glory that is more Beyoncé genes in the world, we've also been left wondering: Were there any signs? Should we have seen it coming? It seems there were some Beyoncé lyrics that hinted at her future pregnancy, and now, everyone's probably even more obsessed. (Can you blame them?)
As we’ve seen in the past, Beyonce isn’t one to be shy about her personal life, at least with her music that is. And while, of course, she (most likely) wrote Lemonade before she was actually pregnant with these little goobers, there are several subtle lines that point to the notion that she was wanting to add more birdies to the nest.
For example, we all remember the infamous line from Sorry, in which Bey clearly states, “he better call Becky with the good hair.” Immediately, listeners rushed to conclusions, including the fact that Bey's long-time husband, rapper and music producer, Jay Z, had been unfaithful.
So, now, we're ready to investigate even further, and look for any hints that, perhaps, Beyoncé was trying to prepare us all for this blessed news for longer than we were aware of.
Come along, my friends, and let's go on this magical, Beyoncé-filled ride together. Because, don't we all need a break from Trump in this world?
Okay, so first of all, looking some more at Sorry, we can get a glimmer of something, however small. When Bey says "Me and my baby we gon' be alright, we gon' live a good life," it's not just a throwaway line she put in there because it sounded good. No. The lyric points to the fact that Beyoncé is incredibly happy with her daughter, Blue Ivy, and that even if she loses everything else in the world, as long as she has her child, she'll be okay.
So, obviously, if she had more kids, she would be more than okay, right? Right.
Then, we can get a little deeper, and darker. In one of her spoken word lines from the visual album, Lemonade, Beyoncé delivers this truth-bomb: "So what are you going to say at my funeral now that you've killed me? Here lies the mother of my children, both alive and dead. Rest in peace, my true love, who I took for granted."
Obviously, the main point here is that Bey is angry about being under-appreciated, but, if we look closely, we can see that she says "mother of my children" not just child. Maybe she was planning ahead, preparing us all for another pregnancy, for more little angels.
Whether or not Bey was hinting towards more littles in her previous songs, we're still happy for her now. We know the future family of five will be as gorgeous, and happy, as possible. And for now, that's enough.
