Jay-Z isn’t holding anything back on his new album 4:44. In addition to seemingly admitting he cheated on Beyoncé and revealing that his mom Gloria Carter is a lesbian, Jay-Z also addresses that time Solange Knowles almost beat him up in an elevator. In 2014, Bey’s sis attended the Met Gala with the famous couple, and a security camera caught a seriously intense exchange between the trio in an elevator. In the song “Kill Jay-Z,” the rapper reveals what really happened that night.

On the track, Jay-Z raps, “You egged Solange on/Knowin’ all along, all you had to say you was wrong.” At the time, it was rumored that Jay-Z had cheated on Bey and Solange was defending her famous sister.

The line implies Jay-Z really did cheat on Bey — which he admits in the album’s title track “4:44” — but wouldn’t own up to it in the elevator, infuriating Solange and causing her to go off on him.

Eric famously split from actress Halle Berry in 2013 amid rumors of fidelity, and the track implies Jay-Z almost lost “the baddest girl in the world,” Queen Bey, by doing the same thing.
