On Saturday, JAY and Bey shocked fans by releasing their surprise new LP.
It had been rumored for years and it has finally arrived: a joint Beyonce-Jay-Z album. Called “Everything Is Love,” the announcement was made by TIDAL, the streaming company owned by Jay-Z. It features nine tracks, each credited to Beyonce and Jay-Z — or The Carters. The news began trickling out on Saturday afternoon with social media posts containing images from the “Everything Is Love” visual campaign. One image posted by Beyonce received nearly 200,000 likes in less than 20 minutes as many noted that, once again, Queen Bey had broken the internet. (Variety)
