As if she's having to tell herself she isn't sorry over and over letting it become a mantra, perhaps fighting off her own instincts. She seems determined not to blame yourself for his wrong doings. Nor will she apologized
for her reaction to it. She also dismisses her partner, saying Edward NA thus

Here is clearly conflicted ass. She continually has to say, I think, about you and ironic contradiction of the statement.

want me to dance with other men. You should have put a ring
and locked this down. Of course, in sorry, the ring finger is replaced with the middle finger.
A more aggressive action that implies the severance of a relationship altogether. In this way, she asked her female fans
come together in solidarity, moving beyond the respect, they demand and single ladys to a more outright rejection of any man who violates the respect they deserve. As such,
It continues into its second verse beyond, say continues to reject our partners. Attempts at communication

says beyond. They will have to let go of masculine approaches to power in favour of feminine power. As the outcome progresses, we will also see beyond they abandoned Wretched Butte of justice for restorative justice model beyond say, ends the verse step
interrupted, my grinding, given the song setting of a night club, it appears beyond, say, is telling her partner that his phone calls are literally interrupting her dancing or grinding with other men, but we all
recognize a line as a forceful way of telling her partner. He no longer takes priority in her life rather she's thrown herself and her work. Her grind in his presence would only be a distraction.
Up to this point in the song beyond Say has demonstrated that she doesn't want to think about her partner. However, her attitude shifts during the bridge into the songs outright
Hell. No, I put that ring on. He always got them after the night of clubbing with a girls,
expresses concern with our partners whereabouts as she comes home to an empty house rather than apathy.
She allowed herself to feel deep emotion, regret. She says

he's taking necessary space to process her emotions.
Have a look
For my part, I believe all of US
continues its bridge bianti sings. Let's have a toast to the good life
her tone here: a somber, not the typical celebratory,
that would generally accompany a toast. Perhaps Beyonce's is toasting the good life her husband had prior to the revelation of his infidelity,
She might also be toasting. The good life shall have without him. May
so be an ironic reference to the fact that, despite the good life of fame riches and status, they do not

Now to see or cry over him if he had any doubt that are apathy was feigned this line confirms it completely.

intently on Becky's potential real life counterpart is too
losing the underlying meaning here in her essay. Getting to the roots of Becky,
but the good hair in lemonade. Dunno Hopson contends that Becky signifies quote
not only the other woman who poses a threat to black women's marriages and romantic partnerships, but also the
other women writ large white woman,
as a negation of black beauty and black femininity. Unquote, this idea of Becky as a white
