Papa Knowles, who has been absent from Beyoncé’s career in recent years, has an interesting theory on the whole Solangate elevator fight with Jay-Z, he seems to think that it was all done for publicity to boost On The Run ticket sales. He had this to say about the whole incident during and interview with Houston radio station:
“Sometimes ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi Mind Trick. The Jedi Mind Trick fools you a lot of times,”
“Everybody’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200 percent.”
I happen to agree with Matthew’s theory. The Carters(Beyoncé’s camp specifically) is very strategic when it comes to what is released. So it was very interesting and ironic that this footage was leaked right before the tour started. The whole strife in the marriage thing fits right into the whole story-line of the tour.
If you attended the concert then you know there was underlying story told by the songs, specifically when Jay-Z performed Song Cry leading right into Beyoncé singing Resentment then Love On Top. It showed that people go through up and downs in marriage and relationships. It just makes complete sense, and honestly it’s genius on the part of The Carters team!
Not sure how happy Bey is with Papa Knowles for spilling the tea where this is concerned, if in fact it is true. Matthew also hinted to a Destiny’s Child reunion as well during the interview.
