Beyoncé and Jay-Z
Beyoncé & Jay-Z Release 'Everything Is Love' As The Carters
Rumors of a joint album between superstar couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been swirling for some time. On June 16, the duo delivered with the surprise drop of their new album, Everything Is Love, and a video for the lead single, "Apes**t."
The nine-song, approximately 40-minute album is credited to the Carters and features writing contributions from Pharrell Williams, Offset, Quavo, Ty Dolla $ign, and TV On The Radio's David Andrew Sitek.
The "Apes**t" video itself shows Beyoncé and Jay-Z, along with a troop of dancers, taking over the Louvre in Paris and posing in front of some of its most famous works, including the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z are currently in the middle of their On The Run II tour. According to Billboard, the new album was announced at the couple's London concert on Saturday night with a big "Album Out Now" message onscreen followed by a Beyoncé-led countdown to the premiere of the new video.
The On The Run II tour kicked off June 6 in Cardiff, Wales and continues through Europe through July 17 before heading back to North America where it will run through Oct. 4. Tickets are available now via Ticketmaster.
