Jay-Z and David Letterman addressed their respective infidelities on Friday’s episode of Letterman’s new Netflix talk show “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” and the work that they put into making things right again.
Toward the end of the hour, Letterman broached the subject in a roundabout way by alluding to his own indiscretions, which he said he regretted.
“I did something that I had no business doing,” the “Late Show” veteran said, focusing on his and the rapper’s shared experience of doing “something to blow up” their families.
Jay-Z and wife Beyoncé’s laundry was aired out on her 2016 “Lemonade” album and his subsequent “4:44,” which both addressed cheating and the aftermath.
In his conversation with Letterman — after they discussed rap, children and Donald Trump — the Grammy-winning mogul referenced lyrics from his 2001 single “Song Cry” in an effort to explain his emotions on the subject.
“The idea of ‘I will never, can’t see [tears] coming down my eyes, but I’ve gotta make the song cry,’ is my way of saying I want to cry, I want to be open, I want to have the emotional tools that it takes to keep my family together,” Jay-Z said.
“Much like you, I have a beautiful wife who is understanding and knew that I’m not the worst of what I’ve done,” the father of three added. “We did the hard work of going to therapy, and really we love each other, so we really put in the work for years.”
He continued: “This music that I’m making now is a result of things that happened already and, like you, I like to believe that we’re in a better place today but still working and communicating and growing.”
“It’s hard work,” Letterman said, and the two men shook on it.
