Beyonce and JAY-Z have finally release their joint album.

 

 

Well this was unexpected. The First Lady of Music and her husband surprise-released their collaborative project Everything Is Love on Saturday. Stream it below via Tidal.

Bey and JAY also dropped a new video for a track titled “APES–T,” directed by Ricky Saiz, (filmed at the Louvre in Paris last month) and an additional single “SALUD!” that you won’t find on the 9-track record. The Carters have credits on every song.

Here’s what you need to know (via Pitchfork):

■ JAY shades the Grammys on “APES–T”: “Tell the Grammys fuck that 0 for 8 shit.” FYI, he was nominated 8 times at the 2018 ceremony, and won 0.

■ JAY confirms he turned down performing at the Super Bowl: “I said no to the Super Bowl / You need me, I don’t need you/ Every night we in the end zone / Tell the NFL we need stadiums too.”

■ Beyoncé calls out Spotify on the track “NICE.” She raps: “If I gave…two fucks about streaming numbers woulda put Lemonade up on Spotify. Fuck you.”

 

 

■ On “HEARD ABOUT US,” Beyoncé sings the iconic line from Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy”: “If you don’t know, now you know, nigga.” The couple sample Phoenix Express’ song “You Make My Life a Sunny Day” on “LOVEHAPPY.”

■ Quavo confirmed “APES–T” features  Migos and Pharrell.



■ Beyonce calls out Spotify on “NICE.” “If I gave two f–ks about streaming numbers, I would’ve put my Lemonade on Spotify. F–k You.”

■ Blue Ivy makes an appearance on “SALUD!,” shouting out her twin siblings, as well as “BOSS.”

JAY-Z first revealed the existence of a joint record with Beyonce during an interview with the New York Times last November. 

“We were using our art almost like a therapy session,” he said at the time. “And we started making music together.” He explained that, because Bey’s music was progressing more quickly, Lemonade ended up coming out “as opposed to the joint album that [they] were working on.”
