“Sorry,” songwriter Diana Gordon also formerly known as Wynter Gordon explains the origin of Beyoncé Knowles Carter’s, ‘Becky with the good hair’ lyric in a new interview.

Fans and critics alike named many women as, “Becky,” – Rachel Roy, Rita Ora and Taylor Swift as Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter’s mistress. Taylor, 26, did not respond to the rumors while Rachel, 42, and Rita, 25, both denied the claims.

“There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors,” Rachel said in a statement on the 26th April 2016.

“I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false. I have nothing but the upmost respect for Beyoncé. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade,” Rita said on Instagram on the same day.

Diana states that the line was written about no one in particular.

“I laughed, like this is so silly. Where are we living? 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?'” Diana says.

“He only want me when I’m not there / He better call Becky with the good hair.” – Sorry, ‘Lemonade’ – Diana “Wynter” Gordon, Sean “MeLo-X” Rhodan & Beyoncé Knowles

“I turned my pain into stories/ And my stories into songs/ And sold them to the highest bidder. I had the most famous people in/ The world telling my story/ Meanwhile nobody knew who I was including me,” she wrote in a poem when debuting the track on The FADER.

Did you and Beyoncé ever talk about the response?
No. I don’t think she expected it. I saw her at her Formation tour. She had a pajama 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. 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 f—ing happy. With Beyoncé, I feel like the songs we worked on were specifically for her. I didn’t have a dad growing up, so “Daddy Lessons,” that was more of a fantasy for me. I felt like I was very strong in helping to raise my brothers and sisters but that really was her story.

You’d written that whole song before you worked with her?
When I played it for her, I was like, “This is one of my favorite songs.” She was like, “This is my life.” I told her, “You know what, take it, do what you want with it.” She went and re-produced it, she changed some words, added the bridge, it’s hers. She didn’t talk to me about her father. We didn’t go into details. I see their relationship in the media just like everyone else. I watched the HBO special just like everyone else. When you do work closely with an artist they touch on things and she touched on it. Beyoncé’s been in our homes for nearly 20 years. I’ve loved her since she was in Destiny’s Child, so yeah I know her story.

I was having anxiety and I told her that I felt like I hadn’t gotten to a place I wanted to get to in my life and she talked to me about things that I wanted for my life. She entrusted a lot power into me. She made me [Parkwood signees] Chloe x Halle’s performance coach. She’s the perfect person to help me tell my story.
