Released on Tidal during their On The Run II tour, the album confirms rumours that the pair had been working together on a joint project.
In November 2017, Jay-Z told the New York Times that they had started working on something as they produced their respective albums 4:44 and Lemonade.
“We were using our art almost like a therapy session,” he said. “And we started making music together.”
While the duo addressed some of their most intimate moments on 2016’s Lemonade and 2017’s 4:44, Everything is Love continues to delve further into their personal lives.
Here are some of the album’s most talked about lyrics so far.
"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 in stadiums too"
On "Apes***," Jay-Z seemingly confirms rumours that he had been asked to play the 2018 halftime show, but turned down the offer.
"Cause my success can’t be quantified/ If I gave two f****, two f**** about streaming numbers/ Would’ve put 'Lemonade' up on Spotify/ F*** you, f*** you"
Beyoncé seemingly addresses her decision to keep Lemonade as a Tidal exclusive on "Nice."
“I ain't going to nobody for nothing when me and my wife beefing/I don't care if the house on fire, I'm dying, nigga, I ain't leaving/Ty Ty take care of my kids, after he done grieving/If ya'll don't understand that, we ain't meant to be friends.”
Hov seems to respond to his fallout with Kanye West, after his "Watch the Throne" collaborator expressed disappointment that Beyonce and Jay Z didn't attend his 2014 wedding to Kim Kardashian, and speculated that it was because they were dealing with their own marriage issues. More background on that here.
"My great-great-grandchildren already rich/ That’s a lot of brown children on your Forbes list"
Beyonce has consistently been ranked among the most successful female artists in the world by Forbes, while her husband Jay Z recently topped the list of richest hip hop stars.
"For the thousandth time, the kid ain’t mine / Online they call me Dad, kiddingly / You’re not supposed to take this dad thing literally"
On "Heard About Us," Jay-Z is likely referencing his alleged "love child," 23-year-old Rymir Satterthwaite.
"You did some things to me / Boy you do some things to me / But love is deeper than your pain and I believe you can change"
"LoveHappy" seemingly shows Beyoncé commenting on her husband's indiscretions and how they moved forward as a couple.
"Tell the Grammys f*** that 0 for 8 shit/ Have you ever seen the crowd goin' apes***?”
On "Apes****," Jay-Z calls out the 2018 Grammy Awards where he received eight nominations, the most out of any nominee, however he did not take home any awards.
