Last year the couple hit the headlines again, when massive speculation surrounded the release of her sixth studio album, Lemonade, and its hard-hitting lyrics about betrayal. Despite the many rumours flying around, Beyoncé insisted at the time that she and her husband were still very much in love. The singer used the opening night of her Formation World Tour to put a stop to the allegations of infidelity. Before performing her stunning ballad Halo, the singer told the audience: "I want to dedicate this song to my family. Thank you guys for supporting me. I wanna dedicate this song to my beautiful family. I love you so much, Blue. I love you so much."
