Songwriter: Ingrid Burley
Beyoncé's Lemonade album left all her listeners feeling like her relationship was in turmoil. One particular song that rattled everyone's cages was "Love Drought." However, if you view the video below from the "Love Drought" songwriter - Ingrid Burley - it reveals that the record is actually about music business relationships and the highs and lows of those "relationships." The music business is one of the mostand sometimes professional relationships can suffer.
Burley states in the video that the lyrics say, "10 times out of nine, I know you're lying / but nine times out of 10, I know you're trying" have nothing to do with marital issues or infidelity. Instead, the above lyrics were directed toward those professionals running Parkwood Entertainment, Beyoncé's management company. Parkwood informed Burley that Bey wasn't listening to any new music when she indeed was.
These type of lies happen daily in the music industry but it's these type of moves that hinder music production, album completion and the face of the management company as a whole. Burley wrote this record in frustration to the blatant lie she was told and thus produced an anthem.
