Building on years of rumors, hints, and a joint tour that kicked off earlier this month, BeyoncĂ© and JAY-Z have just announced the surprise release of a joint album together, titled Everything Is Love. The album—the first full collaboration between the married couple, whose respective solo albums Lemonade and 4:44 were two of the most talked about musical offerings of the last few years—is out today, exclusively on Tidal, natch.


All nine songs on the album are credited to BeyoncĂ© and JAY-Z (or possibly just “The Carters”).  The pair announced the album earlier this afternoon on social media, with BeyoncĂ© posting the album’s art on Instagram (and immediately accruing hundreds of thousands of likes within minutes, because BeyoncĂ©). You can sample the album on Tidal’s front page, or apply for a free trial, on the off-chance you haven’t already spent yours on any number of other service exclusives—Lemonade, 4:44, Anti, The Life Of Pablo, etc.—in the past.
