If you’ve ever been in a relationship, then you know how rocky the road can get.Relationships can be full of happiness, passion, and overwhelming joy, but things can take a very quick turn when the storm comes bringing about sadness, pain, and trust issues. Artists in every genre have written songs about the many struggles of infidelity and the turbulent journey to redemption, but nobody has ever told a story quite like Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. In her new visual album, Lemonade, she shares her own testimony of her experience dealing with the infidelity of her husband and rap mogul, Jay-Z. The Queen B’s story has reached women all over the world, but it has also touched the heart of fellow music artist Monica, who was recently faced with the accusations of another woman claiming to have “x-rated fun” with her husband and Miami Heat player, Shannon Brown. She posted a clip of Beyoncé’s “All Night” captioning,
#SweetestThing#Lemonade #extraordinaryB … As a woman who has been thru it and seen it all my level of appreciation for the honesty, depth & passion this visual album beholds is unexplainable !!!#GreatJob
She posted a picture of her children on Instagram shortly after the alleged mistress’s comments went viral and the caption said,
Center of My Joy ❤️ In life tests are sure to come & because of my faith & belief that God is in control I don't run to talk about my problems because I'm too busy thanking him for the good he's doing in my life… I'm not fake I just refuse to give the devil Glory that only God should have!! My babies got me smiling!! @chefbaul thank you for fixing dinner for my family …. Much love
“Center of My Joy ❤️ In life tests are sure to come & because of my faith & belief that God is in control I don’t run to talk about my problems because I’m too busy thanking him for the good he’s doing in my life… I’m not fake I just refuse to give the devil Glory that only God should have!! My babies got me smiling!! @chefbaul thank you for fixing dinner for my family …. Much love” which was one of the only things she said in response to the alleged affair between Brown and his mistress. More recently, Monica posted the first picture of her and Brown at Beyoncé’s Formation World Tour with her ring on, since she came out and exposed her husband.
Nobody knows what the next step is for the couple, but both Monica and the Queen B have shown us that love can truly conquer all.
