Music’s power couple has done it again. Just days after the duo kicked off their ‘On The Run II’ tour, Jay Z and Beyoncé today released their highly-anticipated joint album ‘Everything Is Love’ and the release was a total surprise. The nine-track album ties up the loose ends left by Bey’s ‘Lemonade’ and Jay’s ‘4:44’. Both albums touched on sensitive issues such as infidelity, trust, betrayal and ultimately forgiveness while ‘Everything Is Love’ has a very celebratory feel to it.
The album he album marks the couple’s first full-length release together. Musically, “Everything is Love” marries the styles of the two artists, with songs driven by warm, sultry soul but with a hip-hop delivery. The album’s lead single ‘Apeshit’ is a celebration of the couple’s manifold achievements and status as music royalty. The stunning video for the song was shot in and around the famous Lourve museum in Paris which houses the ‘Mona Lisa’ – the world’s most famous painting.
“Apeshit” features writing credits by Offset, Pharrell and Quavo. Pharrell assisted with production, while Offset and Quavo are named as additional vocalists Pharrell also has writing, production and vocal credits on the song “Nice.” Among other album credit highlights, Ty Dolla $ign contributed to writing and vocals on “Boss,” and the album’s closing track, “Lovehappy,” lists TV on the Radio’s David Andrew Sitek as one of its writers and producers.
