If you’re like me, you may have thought Mrs. Carter was saying she was drinking watermelon. And if you’re like me you knew it didn’t make sense but whatever…cause it’s Bey. And maybe there’s a Fanta Watermelon soda we don’t know about. Or koolaid.
Anyway. If I’m understanding correctly as I’m coming down off of my Beyonce high, that line is meant to be two sentences. 1. I’ve been drinking (pause) 2. Watermelon.
Welllll turns out watermelon is a natural aphrodisiac. Yep. I’ve seen it described as the woman’s natural Viagra. Watermelon contains citrulline, which relaxes THE muscles and helps with the dilation of blood vessels … um … where you need it.
Now. Don’t go sit and and eat multiple watermelons in one sitting. No. That may kill ya. You’re gonna wanna do this thang slow and steady. A couple of servings of watermelon a day should get you the results you desire.
Just sharing in case you’re looking for something to make your party pop off.

I’ve been informed that I may have gotten this wrong. Here is theory number two!
First, let’s look at some previous lyrics before the watermelon line:
“Boy I’m drinking, got my brain right, Armand de Brignac, gangster wife”
Armand de Brignac is a high end champagne, which is also called, “Ace of Spades.”
The theory that was given to me (read the comments section) is that she is drinking a watermelon flavor of this champagne.
The only thing about it is that THERE IS NO WATERMELON FLAVORED Armand de Brignac!?!?!?
Soooo yeah. This theory is incorrect. I haven’t heard any other theories out there about this particular line, so I’m back to my original idea. She’s DEFINITELY talking about watermelon, the FRUIT!

Okay. Theory three.
Apparently, some people think that Bey is referencing semen when she says she’s been “drinking watermelon.” It seems to have something to do with the seeds in a watermelon (spitting them out?). I’ve seen a couple of people say that’s what they were told.
I’ve never ever heard of the correlation between semen and watermelon seeds. Lol. However, I can’t entirely rule it out.
Either way, I don’t think I’ll ever look at watermelon the same.
