Having been called out publicly by his wife in her fierce 2016 album and video, Lemonade, JAY-Z knew that his fans wouldn't have blinked if his next album skimmed past the allegations.

"To "man up" and to be a 'real man, ' among young males of courage and conviction, now go hand-in-hand with expressing raw emotion, acknowledging flaws, opening up, facing consequences", writes Lewinsky of Brad Pitt's recent vulnerable disclosure of his post-divorce pain and how he's working through it. And it's not as if we hadn't seen Beyonce and Jay-Z out in the world together since then - not to mention, welcoming their twins to planet Earth.

Monica became famous for her affair with Bill Clinton in 1998 while he was president and she was his intern, which he initially denied before it was sent to an impeachment trial.

In the case of JAY-Z, he addresses his mistakes in his marriage to Beyoncé on the title track and "Kill JAY-Z". "But, instead, he chose a path of candor that will ... move the conversation forward and help others".

In "Footnotes", JAY-Z recalled building a "big, lovely mansion of a relationship" before it began "cracking".

This leads into Lewinsky's concluding point: "It is a refreshing and bracing antidote to see male icons convey vulnerability in an age when Washington's new power elite and our coarsening culture are busy projecting an outmoded caricature of manhood, 24/7".

Jay-Z's "4:44" is probably best described as acutely personal. What do you think about Lewinsky's words? A man that don't take care his family can't be rich'. Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles. Took me too long for this song. "But if they did, the threesome might have a more revealing conversation today than we might have ever imagined". For me every misstep has been a step toward epiphany, understanding, some kind of joy", Pitt added, going on to say, "I've got my feelings in my fingertips again.

The lyrics also include: 'If my children knew, I don't even know what I would do.

And: 'What good is a menage a trois when you have a soul mate'.
