On Saturday, Beyoncé rocked Twitter and the music world with the surprise release of her "conceptual project," the visual album "Lemonade."

Now, her lyrics are wreaking havoc on the image of the woman with whom fans believe Jay Z once had an affair.

It has long been rumored that Solange Knowles's infamous attack on Jay Z in an elevator at the Met Ball was over Jay Z allegedly cheating on her sister with Rachel Roy.

She went on to write, "live in the light #nodramaqueens".


Fans immediately took this as an admission that Rachel is the woman Beyoncé targets in her new song "Apathy," in which she seethes in a spoken-word intro, "So what are you gonna say at my funeral now that you’ve killed me? Here lies the body of the love of my life whose heart I broke without a gun to my head. Here lies the mother of my children both living and dead. Rest in peace my true love, who I took for granted. Most bomb p*ssy, who because of me sleep evaded. Her shroud is loneliness, her god was listening. Her heaven will be a love without betrayal. Ashes to ashes, dust to side chicks."

Later, in the song "Sorry," Bey sings "he better call Becky with the good hair."

In response to countless attacks from Beyhive loyalists, Roy made her Instagram account, complete with 317,000 followers, private.

On Sunday, Roy seemed to address the controversy with a Tweet decrying bullying:
