Beyonce & Jay-Z Release Surprise Joint Album ‘Everything Is Love’
The nine-track album was first released on the streaming service Tidal, which the two of them are the co-owners. However, the album is now available for streaming on Spotify and Apple Music and available for download on Amazon Music.
On top of releasing a whole collaborative album, they also released a music video for the second song “Apes–t”. The couple managed to film a video in the famous art museum, the Louvre, in Paris last month. Ricky Saiz, who previously worked on Beyonce’s “Yonce” video, also directed this new music video.
The video itself was stunning, being filled with wide shots of the art with no tourists in sight. The couple were posed in front of different pieces of famous art, including “The Mona Lisa”, “The Winged Victory of Samothrace” and “The Coronation of Napoleon”.
Using the Louvre as a backdrop to their song was fitting as it was all about how they both reached fame and are now living a life of extreme luxury. Alongside the Carters, Pharrell Williams was credited for producing the song, while rappers Quavo and Offset provided background ad-libs.

When the album dropped, the internet went wild, even other celebrities couldn’t hold in their excitement when they heard the news of new music.

… @hollandroden & her mom are taking a nap so I kindly walked by their room & whispered “Beyoncé & Jay Z just dropped a new joint album” , closed their door gently, & retreated to my bed to begin my anointing.
