Jay-Z and Beyonce Drop Surprise Joint Album ‘Everything Is Love’
After constant rumors of a collaboration project, Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé have dropped off a joint album. On Saturday (June 16), the power couple Unloaded Everything Is Love, a nine-track project that arrives in the midst of the pair's On the Run II Tour.
The dynamic duo debuted the album live onstage during their On The Run Tour in London Saturday.
The project is currently streaming exclusively on Tidal. If you don't have Tidal, you can still enjoy Jay and Bey's new music video for "Apeshit" below—the credit for the visual lists the pair as The Carters.
In the Ricky Saiz-directed video, Hov and Bey take over The Louvre in Paris, donning high fashion looks in front of the museum's most famous art pieces: the Mona Lisa, Venus De Milo and Great Sphinx of Tanis. The song, which is from their new album, seems to features Quavo's adlibs, though the rapper isn't listed as a feature artist on the tracklist.
While the project hasn't been out long, it's been around plenty long enough for fans to make known their opinions on the unexpected opus. Thus far, folks have noted Hova's sharp writing and some hardbody bars from Bey. They've also noted that The Carters’ track, "713," interpolates the hook from Dr. Dre's 1999 classic, "Still Dre." Hov famously wrote that particular track nearly 20 years ago. On that same song, Hov also quotes some lyrics from Common's "The Light." Clearly, this LP is very much for the culture.
