Beyoncé and Jay-Z Surprise Release Joint Album ‘Everything Is Love’


Beyoncé, queen of the surprise drop (and everything else), made history when she, without so much as a hint or warning, released the cultural force that is Lemonade. (It’s a stunt she’d also pulled with her 2013 self-titled album.)

Now she’s done it again with Everything Is Love, a joint album with her husband Jay-Z. The album consists of nine tracks, streaming exclusively on Tidal, and marks the first album from Beyoncé since Lemonade in 2016 and the first from Jay-Z since 4:44 in 2017.

Only this isn’t an album from Beyoncé and Jay-Z as two distinct artists—it is from The Carters. This is a couple that has worked through their challenges and emerged as a united force.

When Beyoncé and Jay-Z announced a second “On the Run” tour (which they are currently in the middle of, having just performed in London) many Beyoncé stans, scholars, and theorists surmised that a joint album might be in the works. And in an interview in November of last year with the New York Times‘ executive editor Dean Baquet, Jay-Z told the paper that he and Beyoncé “were using our art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together…And then the music she was making at that time was further along. So her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on.”

And now it is here. Beyoncé announced the album at the end of their London show on Saturday evening.

The full album is streaming exclusively on Tidal.

One track from the album, “Apes**t,” has been released with its video on YouTube. The video was shot in the Louvre in May.
