Beyonce and Jay Z’s new collaborative album titled “Everything Is Love” is the jam of the moment, with each track giving fans a clue of what is actually going on in the famous couple’s private life.

This is actually the first time Beyonce and Jay Z are collaborating on a full album.
Prior to this album, they only featured each other on individual projects.
In the new album Jay Z raps about how music helps him move out of the projects and into a better life.
“I remember summer nights in the projects.
“Bullet rounds interrupting my Chi
“When the worst thing that could happen
“Zipped up his jacket and ran back down the street
“In Bel-Air only the nights get cold, I wrapped a yellow jacket around Bey
“It’s not lost on me, music has my kids sound asleep.”
He also raps about his refusal to perform at the Super Bowl on the second track “Apes–t”.
” I said no to the Superbowl
“You need me, I don’t need you
“Every night we in the endzone

“Tell the Grammy’s f–k that 0 for 8 s–t
“Have you ever seen the crowd goin’ apes–t?”

“We keepin’ it real with these people, right?
“Lucky I ain’t kill you when I met that b- (Nah, aight, aight)
