Just when rumors on the possible relationship problems of Beyonce and Jay-Z stopped, the beautiful singer makes a decision that fuels once again the speculation. Beyonce is set to release a new single, Ring Off, which is another ode to the independent women.
Naturally, this leads to new rumors on the troubles in the relationship of the power couple. “In the mirror you would stare/ And say a prayer like, ‘I wish he said I’m beautiful’/ I wish it didn’t hurt at all/ I don’t know how I got here, I was once the one who had his heart,” the lyrics of the new song reveal, “… Until you had enough, then you took that ring off/ You took that ring off/ So tired of the lies and trying and fighting and crying…”
This is not the only time when Beyonce has herself sparked speculation on her marital problems. Is this another publicity stint for Beyonce to draw more interest on her upcoming Beyonce: The Platinum Edition Box Set? What is certain is that this is a song about a relationship that has been torn apart by infidelity.
While the song talks about the suffering of ending a relationship, it ends with a happy note. “Now the fun begins / Dust yourself off.” Is the song inspired from Beyonce’s personal life? Well, 2014 has surely been a successful year for Beyonce and Jay-Z, but also a year filled with rumors on their marital problems.
Rumors on the fact that Jay-Z cheated on his wife first surfaced in May, when the already famous elevator video was published. In this video Solange, Bey’s sister, is seen attacking Jay-Z in an elevator, while the famous singer is looking without doing anything. Naturally, this only increased the rumors on the cheating affair. Beyonce and Jay-Z never talked publicly about these rumors, but they constantly fueled rumors with certain decisions. However, the couple also posed as happy in various pics shared on social media, leading to mix opinions about the actual state of their relationship.
