Social media users reacted to the song lyrics of one of the songs on Beyonce and Jay Z’s new joint album- and they’re not having it.
The Carters dropped an album titled Everything Is Love over the weekend and it has since received mixed reactions from social media users.
Particularly when one tweep, @missjournalism, quoted lyrics from a song on the album called 713.
The tweet read, "to all the good girls that love hustlas, to the mothers that put up with us, to all the babies that suffer cause us, we only know love because of ya... black queen, you rescued us. hov's love letter to us. #everythingislove”.
Although a lot of Jay Z and Beyonce’s fans praised their new songs, a lot of female tweeps felt if that’s what love meant, they wanted no part of it.
“I don’t ever wanna be loved like this and if this is the standard I’m better off alone. I refuse to believe i have to endure years of abuse & sacrifice to be loved back. I’m good love, enjoy.”, @TheBlackLayers commented.
And, she is not the only woman who felt that ladies should not be used as an emotional punching bag so that their partners could ‘grow’.
