Out of nowhere, JAY-Z and Beyoncé — Hip Hop’s billionaire power couple — dropped a joint project exclusively through TIDAL on Saturday (June 16). To mark the special occasion, they also unveiled a video for “APESHIT,” which was shot on-site at the Louvre in Paris, France as they continue their On The Run Tour II.
Titled EVERYTHING IS LOVE, the nine-track album led to social media mania as people scrambled to not only get their hands on it, but also figure out how the pop superstar and Hip Hop mogul were able to keep it under wraps.
Several people also deemed Beyoncé the new Queen of Rap.

I told my wife there was a new Beyonce and Jay-Z album. She told me she had to run an errand, and now she’s been circling the block in the car for the past 30 minutes like I can’t see her.
