Beyoncé And Jay-Z Just Made Everyone Go ‘Ape Shit’ With A Surprise Joint Album

This is not a drill: Beyoncé and Jay-Z just dropped an entire joint album without any announcement or hype whatsoever. Because it’s not like music’s most powerful couple needs album promo anyway!

Everything Is Love abruptly hit Tidal on Saturday afternoon (July 16) under the name The Carters. The collaborative album spans nine songs, clocks in at just over 38 minutes, and features both Bey and Jay on every track. One of those cuts, “APESHIT,” already has a full-length music video that’s also available on Tidal. The cinematic vid was shot on location at The Louvre in Paris, and was teased by Beyoncé on Instagram.

Rumors about a Bey and Jay collaborative album have long swirled, and they escalated in March when the couple announced their joint stadium trek, On The Run II. The tour kicked off earlier this month in the U.K. and begins its North American leg on July 25. Looks like fans are going to have a lot of new music to get them hyped before then.

If you don’t have a Tidal account — and somehow aren’t succumbing to the pressure to subscribe — you can listen to 30-second previews of the new songs below. Happy listening!

Chloe x Halle Spill The Life Advice They Got From Beyoncé

Chloe x Halle and Wyclef Jean stopped by the TRL studio and kept it ~100~ about the power of collaborations and partnerships with other artists. So, uh, does either of them want to be my mentor??

Coming from a position that virtually nobody else in the world could relate to, Chloe x Halle shared what it’s like to work directly with and get guidance from Beyoncé, as the duo is signed to her label. The most important part, according to Bey? Wait for the world to catch up and don’t dumb yourself down for anyone. Chloe x Halle’s music might not be traditionally mainstream, but that’s perfectly fine because their real fans will find them.

Wyclef Jean also stopped by and told Sway Calloway the story of how DJ Khaled got permission to sample parts of Santana’s “Maria Maria” when putting together “Wild Thoughts,” last year’s summer smash that featured Rihanna and Bryson Tiller. I think I just lost count of how many legends were involved in the making of one hit song! TRL airs on weekdays at 8:00am ET!

Beyoncé Covers CR Fashion Book Issue 5

For Issue 5 of Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, the young, yet revered imprint tapped Beyoncé for its latest cover story. Shot by Pierre Debusschere with guest creative direction coming from Riccardo Tisci, the double-sided cover image sees Queen B wearing an all-over floral cape from Yohji Yamamoto with a Yeezus-esque mask on one side. The rest of the spread includes styles from COMME des GARCONS, PRADA, Nike and a Chanel surfboard(t). Furthermore, in lieu of a cover story, Beyoncé wrote an introspective poem, which was then “remixed” by Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Forrest Gander.

Beyoncé’s spread can be seen in its entirety over at CR Fashion Book‘s Tumblr.

The Lox Detail Album Plans And Give Credit To Beyonce

(Swizz Beatz and Khaled make progress on The LOX album)

The LOX paid a visit to New York City’s Hot 97 radio station on Thursday morning (December 26) to chat about their new EP, upcoming album and being inspired by Beyonce’s sudden music drop, before getting into a debate about the state of New York hip-hop. Listen below.

“In this business, timing is everything,” Jada explained about dropping their new Trinity EP last week. “Your gut feeling is important and taking chances is always great. It’s like a gamble. Big shout-out to Beyoncé, she paved the way on a bigger scale, before it got exhausted from a hood level, a street perspective standpoint, we were able to do the same thing and capitalize. We ain’t do it because she did it, but – she made it better for us. She made it better.”

“We actually was going to release a few songs for the holidays, few songs, few freestyles,” Styles P added. “We were just going to drop it. We knew nothing of what she was doing and then she dropped it and that added the iTunes into it.”
