WATCH: Jay-Z and Beyoncé drop surprise album and music video


Los Angeles — Jay-Z and Beyoncé are keeping up a family tradition, dropping a surprise album before anyone knew it was coming.

The couple released a joint album that touches on the rapper's disgust at this year's Grammy Awards and features a shout out from their daughter Blue Ivy to her siblings.

The nine-track album Everything Is Love dropped Saturday on the Tidal music streaming service that Jay-Z partially owns.


The album features Beyoncé rapping on songs more than she has done on previous releases.

One song that features a profanity in its title includes Jay-Z lashing out at the Grammys. He was the top nominee at February's awards show, but left empty-handed.

In 2013, Beyoncé released the self-titled album Beyoncé without any notice.
