Jay-Z’s mum has come out as a lesbian, dropping a surprise pro-LGBT song collaborating with her son. Beyoncé’s husband dropped his long-awaited new album 4:44 on his streaming service Tidal this week.
One of the tracks on the album, “Smile”, features his mother Gloria Carter, who reveals publicly for the very first time that she is gay.
Jay-Z raps: “Push through the pain so we can see new life/So all the ladies havin’ babies, see a sacrifice
“Mama had four kids, but she’s a lesbian/Had to pretend so long that she’s a thespian
“Cried tears of joy when you fell in love/Don’t matter to me if it’s a him or her
“I just wanna see you smile through all the hate/Marie Antoinette, baby, let ’em eat cake”.
