Jay Z and Beyonce have reportedly been on rocky terms as of late. After their fiasco in the elevator with Solange, rumors have disseminated through the media like wildfire speculating that Jay Z was cheating on Beyonce. While the two have officially kicked off their “On The Run” tour last week, many have noticed a slight change in lyrics coming from Mrs. Carter’s end. During one of their shows, Beyonce performed her song, “Resentment” from her 2006 album, B’Day. Beyonce changed some of the lyrics of the song, adding fuel to the fire regarding Jay’s infidelity.

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

Many believe the new lyrics represent the couple’s current relationship stance.  Before, the original lyrics were in “Resentment” were , “Been riding with you for six years.”

Is this a stretch?

The two weren’t able to attend the BET Awards last weekend, but were able to deliver a smokey performance via video. Check out their performance here.
