Everybody want to know what my Achilles heel is
Love, I don't get enough of it
The Achilles heel (a phrase of Greek origin) is a deadly weakness that could actually or potentially lead to a downfall. Jay’s killing everyone with his monstrous lyrics, so his enemies need to find his Achilles heel to take him down.
According to Homer’s The Iliad, Achilles was known as one of the greatest warriors that ever lived. Jay is most likely alluding once again to his own greatness, as well as admitting that, yes he does have a weakness, love. He may be a monster, but he is still mortal.
He pinpoints his weakness as his need for love from the masses (I suppose Beyoncé isn’t giving him enough love).
