Three years ago today, Beyoncé dropped Lemonade, a record that produced hit singles that still has ladies getting into formation and has fans trying to figure out exactly who “Becky with the good hair” is. The latter inquiry comes from Bey’s hit “Sorry,” a sassy track that sparked rumors that possibly, at one point, not all was well in the Knowles-Carter household because Jay Z may have stepped out on his wife. Of course, no one knows for sure, and while some say that Bey is just using the topic of a cheating husband for artistic purposes, others don’t believe that the line of art and reality is all that fine.
To celebrate Lemonade‘s drop date, Beyoncé has re-released the album. While the tracklisting is exactly the same as before, Bey added the demo version of “Sorry” as a surprise for fans. In this melodic, haunting version of the song, Bey delivers a more melancholy experience rather than the “I don’t need no man” feeling that came with the finalized product. There are no “middle fingers up” here either, but Becky still makes an appearance. Both are excellent tracks, but this version would have been out of place on Lemonade and it’s obvious as to why Bey spiced things up a bit.
