If “Song Lyric Of The Year” was an awards show category, Beyonce’s lyric from her song “Sorry” would definitely be nominated, if not the winner!
The lyric had everyone speculating who she was talking about? Was it a true description of a woman that Jay cheated on Bey with?
The answer is no, according to singer/songwriter Diana Gordon (formerly known by her stage name Wynter Gordon), who helped pen the song with Bey. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gordon explains the lyric is about no one in particular.
About the world’s reaction to the lyric, Gordon said, “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?”
She continued, saying she doesn’t think Beyonce expected the response either. “I saw her at her Formation tour. She had a pajama party; we laughed, we danced, we hugged it out. But I didn’t say much about it at the time because I wanted to give her space,” she said. “The idea started in my mind but it’s not mine anymore. It was very funny and amusing to me to watch it spread over the world. If it’s not going to be me saying it, and the one person in the world who can say it is Beyoncé, I was f—ing happy.”
Welp, that clears THAT up!
Along with dishing on her contribution to Lemonade, she also dished on what’s coming in her solo career, which should be a mega boost now that everyone knows of her Be cosign. She recently dropped her single “The Legend Of,” and she’s excited about her future. “The one thing that I know is concrete that I will be continuously releasing music,” she told EW. She’s written for artists like Jennifer Lopez, and she’s known for her dance music, but she’s eager to show the world another side of her.
“To the world, I was pretty much this girl who did dance music, very easily forgotten, so I wanted to just be real. I wanted to start this new chapter, like f— it, this is who I am and here I am. No more playing, no more sugar coating stuff. Working with Beyoncé has allowed people to shine a light on me and has given me a platform to say, ‘Okay I’m great, you should pay attention. I’m going to redo this again and we’re going to do it in a way where I don’t have to dance around who I am anymore, dance around the fact that there are real issues going on.'”
