Jay-Z and Beyoncé Drop Surprise Album, Show Power of Enduring Love and Remind Us Relationships Take Work
On Saturday, the power couple dropped a surprise album, ‘Everything is Love’ – and it’s a reminder that they are the ultimate #relationshipgoals.
The album is the third in a marriage trilogy of sorts. On Beyoncé’s critically-acclaimed album ‘Lemonade,’ she hinted that Jay-Z cheated on her. On ‘4:44,’ Hova confirmed that he had in fact been unfaithful, but he was begging for forgiveness.
That brings us to ‘Everything is Love,’ which is a testament to the fact that with hard work and understanding, it is possible to work things out.

4.4.4: The request for forgiveness of the offender
Everything is Love: The reconciliation and triumph of Love.

Stronger than ever
In songs like ‘Lovehappy,’ they appear to be stronger than ever. Here’s a lyric from the end of the song (via Variety):
“Sometimes I thought we’d never see the light/ Went through hell with heaven on our side.” Beyonce sings. “Damn, look at us now/ Pray, pray for the vows/ Way up now, yes, and a way, long way down/ We came, and we saw, and we conquered it all/ We came, and we conquered, now we’re happy in love.”
Family is stronger, too
On one track, the couple’s six-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, shouts out the newest members to the family, Rumi and Sir.
“Shout out to Rumi and Sir, love Blue,” she says at the end of the song ‘Boss.’
Everything IS love
‘Everything is Love’ is nine tracks long, tallying a brief 40 minutes and is available only on Tidal.
There’s also a music video for “Ape S**t,” which was shot in May at the Louvre in Paris. Because of course it was.
