Beyonce and Jay-Z drop surprise new joint album Everything Is Love

Most musicians tease their upcoming albums for weeks but Beyonce and Jay Z are a  bit different. 

Beyonce did it with her iconic album Lemonade in 2016 and now she has collaborated with her husband on a nine-track album called Everything Is Love.

The couple’s joint album dropped on Saturday on the Tidal music streaming service that Jay-Z partially owns. 

Lyrics on the album talk about Jay-Z’s disgust at the Grammy Awards, where he was a top nominee but left empty- handed.

“Tell the Grammys f*** that 0 for 8 s***,” he says.

He also confirms the rumour that he turned down a Super Bowl Halftime Show offer: “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.”

The video clip for one single, APES***, has been released in full on YouTube.

The video was filmed at the Louvre in Paris last month and features the pair posing in various settings in the oddly empty museum, delivering their lines in front of centuries-old masterpieces, even the Mona Lisa.
