The answer to the question on everyone’s lips is that ‘Becky‘ doesn’t refer to any one in particular, according to Diana Gordon.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly on Tuesday, she said that they weren’t pointing the finger at one person.
I laughed, like this is so silly. Where are we living?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.’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**king happy. With Beyoncé, I feel like the songs we worked on were specifically for her.’
Gordon explained that Queen Bey made the tracks, she had penned her own.
‘Beyoncé is a scientist of songs. I’ve never seen anyone work the way she works. She definitely changes the song structures. She can take two songs, say, “I like two lines, I like the melody then let me use that for a verse and a bridge and write the whole middle.”
‘It’s more of a collaboration. You never know what she’ll like. I came to her with a bunch of songs and she was like, “I like that verse, I like the idea.” But she definitely doesn’t take things as is, at least not from me. I came in on the Jack White song [Don’t Hurt Yourself] and helped finish it.’
