In Beyonce’s new single ‘Ring Off’ she addresses her parent’s troubled marriage. In the song she applauds her mother for toughing it out till she left for another man. Beyonce’s dad, Mathew Knowles has been the subject of a lot of controversy, over cheating and infidelity. He has two known illegitimate children, Koi and Nixon Knowles from different women. Beyonce and sister, Solange are not on speaking terms with him.
On the track, Beyonce sings;
Mama, I understand your many sleepless nights . When you sit and you think about Father. Or how you tried to be the perfect wife/ You used to dress and fix your hair . Then you smiled through your tears . In the mirror you would stare . And say a prayer lLike, “I wish he said I’m beautiful . I wish it didn’t hurt at all. I don’t know how I got here . I was once the one who had his heart”/Until you had enough then you took that ring off .
You took that ring off. So tired of the lies and trying, fighting, crying. Took that ring off . Oh, now the fun begins . Dust yourself off and you love again. You found a new man now you shine and you’re fine . Like it’s my time, you took that ring off
