Beyonce Calls out Mathew’s Cheating Ways in New Track
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Tina Knowles recently revealed how hard her failed marriage to Mathew Knowles was to get through, but she’s in a happier place these days with a great boyfriend and close relationships with her famous daughters Beyonce and Solange.
In the meantime, Mathew has been hit with multiple paternity tests, and it’s been confirmed that he now has two additional children outside of his former marriage to Tina.
While multiple media outlets wrongly assumed that Beyonce’s new song “Ring Off” was about her rumored troubled marriage to Jay Z, it’s evident by the lyrics that she’s actually praising her mother for being strong enough to overcome her father’s dirty ways.
Gossip Cop writes:
In actuality, the song is about Beyoncé’s mom Tina, whom she even addresses at the beginning of the track, singing, “Mama, I understand your many sleepless nights/When you sit and you think about Father/Or how you tried to be the perfect wife.” The song goes on to share Beyonce’s admiration for her mom picking herself up and becoming stronger than ever, with the performer singing, “Always know that you’ve got a daughter/That’s so, so proud you took the high road.” Beyoncé’s mother can even be heard doing the song’s outro, saying, “If you’re going through it just know it’s called ‘going through it.’ You’re not gonna get stuck there, you’re not gonna die. You’re gonna survive.” As has been well-documented, Tina and Mathew Knowles’ marriage ended in disaster several years ago, and it’s since been revealed he fathered at least one child out of wedlock.
