Rumor has it that Beyonce changed the lyrics to her 2006 songResentmentto refer to Jay Z’s recent infidelity accusations.

During theOn the Runtour that also features Beyonce’s husband Jay Z, Beyonce changed the lyrics to reportedly correspond with the amount of time her and Jay Z have been together.

I know she was attractive, but I was here first, she sang. Been riding with you for 12 years / Why did I deserve to be treated this way by you?

In the original version of the song, she reverences a 6 year relationship.

The lyric would not have applied in 2006 when the song came out, considering they had only been together for 4 years at that point. The couple started to date around 2002.


Are people reaching, or is Beyonce trying to tell us something?
