EDITORS’ NOTES

Some couples repair rifts in their relationships with expensive therapy. Beyoncé and JAY-Z tour stadiums together and surprise-release collaborative albums that mine their self-mythologized personal drama for big-ticket entertainment. Sonically closer to Beyoncé’s 2016 high-art airing of dirty laundry Lemonade than Jay’s 2017 response 4:44, this isn’t just rubbernecking at the doings inside America’s royal family—it’s a challenging, tense, and thoroughly catchy summertime romp in its own right. When Beyoncé sings, “I can’t believe we made it,” in the appropriately aggressive “APES**T,” she might be referring to the détente in their high-profile marriage; she might mean this very album. The fun is in decoding—but it’s hardly the only fun.

WAITING ON BEYONCÉ TO RELEASE HER 7TH SOLO ALBUM, THIS JOINT ALBUM WAS SO 2014, BUT IT’S GOOD.

A MASTERPIECE

UmbraBitch

A beautiful culmination of what happened after the events of Lemonade and 444. This shows the growth in their relationship and how they moved forward. They both were able to remain polished, skilled, soulful while also remaining current. Plus their CHEMISTRY is perfection. It is truly a cohesive project betwixt two legendary artists. We already stan but we have redecided to stan FOREVER.

A TRILOGY! 🔥

LEMONADE, 4:44, EVERYTHING IS LOVE. This album is amazing! Haven’t got to listen much besides on Tidal but iTunes is so much better! GO BEYONCÉ & JAY-Z! 😊
