The Internet Is Convinced Rachel Roy Is “Becky With The Good Hair”

Well, that was fast

While the entirety of Beyoncé’s visual album Lemonade is a masterpiece in itself, there was one particular line early on that set the Internet ablaze with questions. At the very end of “Sorry”—the anti-fuccboi anthem that was accompanied with some killer dance moves by Serena Williams—Bey concludes the track: “He better call Becky with the good hair.”

While there is no confirmed information about just how biographical Bey’s new album is (some say that the emphasis on cheating and relationship strife could be about her mother’s marriage), just a few hours after the premiere of the album, a potential Becky came out of the woodwork, suggestively outing herself on Instagram. Fashion designer Rachel Roy captioned a photo: “Good hair, don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always.” Excessive comma use aside, Roy’s Instagram made an obvious gesture towards Beyoncé’s song, leading to an online attack of Roy’s internet presence, leading the fashion designer to speak out about “bullying” on Twitter. She also deleted the Instagram and made her account private.

While the truth of the matter is still unclear, there are enough connections that make the identity of “Becky” plausible. Roy is the ex-wife of Jay Z’s former business partner, Damon Dash. Plus, there were rumors of her closer-than-comfortable relationship with Jay Z back in 2014, when the infamous elevator incident took place. “Solange was defending Beyoncé in the elevator because Solange finds Jay’s friendship with Rachel to be WAY too close for comfort and it makes Solange very uncomfortable,” a source had told Hollywood Life at the time.

From the ending of Lemonade it seems like Jay and Bey have reconciled, but the potential outing of Becky is sure to keep the drama flowing, and the questions coming. For instance, why is the Internet confusing Rachel Roy and Rachel Ray? Will people realize that Rachel Roy doesn't make meals in 30 minutes? Will Beyoncé stans ever stop flooding Rachel Ray's delicious photos of food with lemon emojis?

Whatever the truth may be, the Internet is now rife with plenty of lemons and bees to go around. The Beyhive does not rest.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.

"In the midst of chaos there's opportunity"

Following the travesty that was Fyre Festival, Ja Rule wants to take another stab at creating a music festival. Good luck getting that off the ground.

On Thursday, the rapper spoke to TMZ, where he revealed that he was planning to relaunch Icon, an app used to book entertainers, which is similar to Billy McFarland's Fyre app. He told the outlet that he wanted to create a festival similar to Fyre to support it.

"[Fyre Festival] is heartbreaking to me. It was something that I really, really wanted to be special and amazing, and it just didn't turn out that way, but in the midst of chaos there's opportunity, so I'm working on a lot of new things," he says. He then gets into the fact that he wants to form a music festival. "[Fyre] is the most iconic festival that never was... I have plans to create the iconic music festival, but you didn't hear it from me."

Ja Rule actually doesn't seem to think he is at all responsible for what came from Fyre Fest, claiming in a Twitter post that he was "hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, led astray." Even if that's his feeling, he should realize that anyone involved with Fyre shouldn't ever try their hand at music festivals again.
