Tea, Shade, and Lemonade: Who is Becky with the Good Hair?




The debut of Beyonce’s HBO film and the subsequent release of her album, both entitled Lemonade, awed the beehive and the general public alike. Throughout this visual album, listeners gained entrance into what seemed like Beyonce’s personal life. Sprinkled all through Lemonade were juicy punchlines and prophetic ballads that implied infidelity, familial disputes, and consequent reconciliation. The line that left most onlookers wanting to know more was in the song “Sorry” that ended with, “he better call Becky with the good hair.” Who is Becky you might ask?

Social media has been set ablaze seeking to answer that very question. Speculation has surrounded both Rita Ora and Rachel Roy after both made questionable social media posts that many believed indirectly referenced Lemonade.



Both have since denied being “Becky” but that hasn’t stopped members of the beehive from making their presence known and expressing their distaste. Fans were so quick to address fashion designer Rachel Roy, that chef and television personality Rachel Ray bore the brunt of some of the negativity due to the similarities in their names.

Despite the shady rumors and gossip, the identity of “Becky with the good hair” remains sealed for the moment.
