One of the biggest questions to plague us this year, is WHO IS BECKY WITH THE GOOD HAIR?
Of course what we’re referencing is the release of Beyonce’s new album, Lemonade, and one song in particular, that says ’you better call Becky with the good hair.’
The line is from her latest single, “Sorry” – and once released, immediately sparked a witch hunt to identify ‘Becky’.
Rita Ora was tossed up as a possibility, designer Rachel Roy – and even Taylor Swift by fans online. But Diana Gordon, formally known as Wynter Gordon, was the main writer behind the song and has provided us with the answer we’ve all been longing for.
Becky isn’t actually anyone in particular. “I laughed, like this is so silly. Where are we living?” Gordon said to Entertainment Weekly about the song.
“I was like, ‘What day in age from that lyric do you get all of this information? Is it really telling you all that much, accusing people?'”
When asked if she had spoken to Beyoncé about the reaction to the song, Gordon said: “I don’t think she expected it.” “I saw her at her Formation tour. She had a pyjama party; we laughed, we danced, we hugged it out.
But I didn’t say much about it at the time because I wanted to give her space,” she explained.
“The idea started in my mind but it’s not mine anymore. It was very funny and amusing to me to watch it spread over the world.
“If it’s not going to be me saying it, and the one person in the world who can say it is Beyoncé, I was fucking happy.
With Beyoncé, I feel like the songs we worked on were specifically for her.”
“Sorry” was included on Beyoncé’s blockbuster album Lemonade earlier this year, which went straight to No.1 in the U.K. and U.S.
