Beyoncé has retained her title as queen of the surprise music drop.
This time she had some help, as she and husband Jay-Z released a joint album, “Everything Is Love,” Saturday on his Tidal streaming service. The project has long been rumoured and comes as the pair has been thrilling audiences in Europe with their “On The Run II” tour, which will hit North America in July.
The singer gave a sneak peek Saturday of the first video off the album, “Ape S**t,” which according to a rep for the project was shot in May at The Louvre in Paris.
Beyoncé also shared other images from “Everything Is Love” including the album cover.
The couple have independently dropped albums that have addressed the storms their marriage has endured.
In 2016, Beyoncé’s critically acclaimed “Lemonade” had fans debating its themes of love, betrayal, empowerment, tribalism and family.
