WATCH AND LISTEN: KIM BURRELL DETAILS PHONE CALL WITH JAY-Z WHEN BEYONCE WAS “GOING THROUGH IT”; JAY-Z TOLD KIM BURRELL THAT BEYONCE HAD HER GOSPEL MUSIC ON REPEAT FOR ELEVEN HOURS DURING A PAINFUL TIME IN HER LIFE
Kim Burrell revealed that Beyonce found her gospel music therapeutic during a difficult time in her life.
The Grammy-nominated singer, 50, shared how she came to collaborate with Jay-Z, 53, on his album 4:44 – in which he apologized to Beyonce for his infidelities – after he called her up to say that his wife, 41, locked herself up in a room and listened to Burrell’s tunes for 11 hours on repeat.
The gospel singer said the hip-hop mogul revealed the significance her music had on the Lemonade songstress, while appearing on the We Sound Crazy Podcast in October.
‘He called me and said, “Hey, my wife is going through it. I always know because I hear you playing in the background,”‘ she recalled.
‘He’s like, “My wife locked up in there for 11 hours and I heard nothing but Kim Burrell for 11 hours,”‘ Burrell said, adding, ‘He’s like, “Here’s why I’m calling you. When she came out, she was better.” He said she was so much better. He says, “I’m calling you because I need to have a meeting with the person that made my wife better.”‘
Following their talk, Burrell said that she flew to meet him at the studio where he recorded 4:44, which was released in 2017.
She said the two talked for four hours and that she would never reveal the secrets from that in-depth conversation.
And though she wasn’t intending to appear on the album, she ended up featuring on the main track – also titled 4:44 – which was a public apology to his wife.
Jay-Z and Beyonce’s marriage woes came to public eye in 2016, when Beyonce released her album Lemonade.
The Texas-born superstar – who’s been married to Jay-Z since 2008 – shared a rare glimpse into the private life of the power couple, and alleged infidelity, referencing ‘Becky with the good hair’ as the other woman.

Kim Burrell Details Phone Call With Jay-Z When Beyoncé Was “Going Through It”
Jay-Z and Beyoncé carried the image of a picture-perfect relationship throughout their lives but in 2016, the world found out about the turmoil between the power couple. The moment Beyonce released Lemonade, she provided a rare glimpse into her otherwise private life. She alleged infidelity during their marriage and the struggles she faced to keep her family together as Jay and Becky with the good hair frolicked around together, allegedly. Then, Jay dropped 4:44, which served as a companion piece that showcased the rapper in his most vulnerable form.
Though Jay-Z and Beyoncé have explored the backstory of their respective projects, Kim Burrell recently shone a light on an interesting conversation she had with Hov. Burrell explained that she received a call from Jay-Z at one point, who told her that Beyoncé listened to nothing else but her music to uplift her spirits. However, Hov identified Beyoncé’s habitual listening patterns as a sign that she was “going through it.”
Around the time Jay-Z was working on 4:44, he rang up Burrell to inform her of the impact she had on Beyoncé during a trying time in her life. “At the time, I didn’t know it was going to be the name of the record but he called me and said, ‘Hey, my wife is going through it. I always know because I hear you playing in the background,’” she recalled. “He’s like, ‘My wife locked up in there for 11 hours and I heard nothing but Kim Burrell for 11 hours.’”
