June 18, 2018
Beyoncé and JAY-Z surprised fans by dropping their first-ever joint album on Saturday as The Carters. Vulture reports that the couple debuted the nine-track Everything Is Love at the end of their London show on their On the Run Tour II, with a screen that read, “Album Out Now.” The project’s cover art is taken from a still from a new music video for a song called “Apes**t,” which was filmed inside the Louvre. In addition to featuring close-up shots of the Louvre’s artwork, the visual includes images of black couples. There’s also a reference to Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest. Rumors of a joint album first went public 2015, when producer Detail let slip that one was in the works. Jay later confirmed that the joint album was shelved in order to give proper attention to Beyonce’s Lemonade LP and his 4:44 project.
