Jay-Z set the rumour mill working overtime when he appeared to slightly alter the lyrics to 'Beach is Better' whilst performing in Paris on Friday (12th September). The alteration has led many to believe Beyoncé is pregnant.
As TMZ reports, Jay-Z rapped 'pregnant with another one', changing it from 'I replace it with another one'. Media outlets have been quick to claim this is Jay-Z dropping a huge hint but it could simply be a means of drumming up publicity for the tour.
The rumours are being supported by a video which first appeared on Vine and was filmed during Jay-Z's performance. It's difficult to hear what exactly Jay-Z is rapping and it could well be a sound issue, so this could all be the over reaction of the year.
Furthermore, as MTV reports, Beyoncé is unlikely to let anyone else steal the spotlight when it comes to news of this magnitude. Beyoncé announced her first pregnancy whilst on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2011 so Jay-Z surreptitiously does seem somewhat out of character for both Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

The couple are on their final leg of their 'On the Run' tour and Jay-Z has certainly drawn attention to their last two performances. Furthermore, this is not the first time Jay-Z and Beyoncé have reportedly deliberately drummed up publicity for their tour. Beyoncé's father, Matthew Knowles, recently claimed the infamous Solange Knowles and Jay-Z elevator fight was staged to draw attention to the couple's upcoming world tour and Solange's latest album.
