Beyoncé concluded a six-year wait for a new album with the release of her seventh album Renaissance during the weekend. Among the many talking points on the album after its release, one was a line from “Church Girl” that many assumed was about Jay-Z. On the song, Beyoncé sings, “It must be the money because it’s not your face.” It inspired many reactions and memes (like this one) that connect him to Jay-Z. While we’ll never know if Mr. Carter is the subject of the line, it’s worth remembering that Jay has probably heard the song before as he has helped write songs for Beyoncé on several occasions.
Here are all the Beyoncé songs that Jay-Z co-wrote
Beyoncé and Jay-Z have collaborated on several occasions. Their tracklist includes ‘Crazy In Love’, ‘Drunk In Love’, ‘Part II (On The Run)’, ‘Deja Vu’ and the whole all is love album. Their collaborations even go as far as Jay-Z helping write Beyoncé songs. For starters, despite not having a guest verse on the album, Jay-Z has three songwriting credits on Renaissance: “Alien Superstar”, “Break My Soul” and “America has a problem”. Jay also has songwriting credits on “Kitty Kat” from Beyoncé’s 2006 second album. B’Day as well as “Baby Boy”, “Hip Hop Star” and “Yes” from his 2003 debut album Dangerously in love.
