It looks like Jay Z and Beyoncé are about to reinvent the rap beef by combining it with marriage counseling. Less than two weeks after Beyoncé dropped Lemonade—with its "many lyrical accusations" against her husband—comes word Jay Z is preparing his musical response, Vanity Fair reports. "Jay is working on an album telling his side of things," a source tells Us Weekly.

In the immensely popular Lemonade, Beyoncé makes multiple references to Jay Z's infidelities and other transgressions during their eight-year marriage. And while Hova has been said to be OK with the lyrical content of Lemonade, it seems he has a few things to get off his chest, as well. If nothing else, a Jay Z album about Queen Bey "would clearly be a genius business move," according to Vanity Fair. (More Jay Z stories.)
