Beyoncé and Jay-Z, or The Carters, released a surprise album titled Everything Is Love this past Saturday. The couple is currently co-headlining “On The Run II Tour”. The tour was stopped in London Saturday night and the new album was announced onstage with a sign reading “ALBUM OUT NOW”.
Fans don’t know how to deal.

Some fans aren’t so sure about Tidal – the platform they exclusively released the album with.

And others have noted the timing of the album drop in relation to Nas’ long-awaited album.
Remember June 2018? Albums from Pusha T, Kanye, Cudi and Ye, Nas, Beyonce & Jay Z, Drake…

Jay couldn't just sit back while everyone is dropping albums and not want in on the action. He didn't even let Nas enjoy the weekend with his new album. That ether is powerful……

Beyoncé and Jay Z really killed any buzz that Nas and Kanye thought they had. The beef lives.

Even though its release came as a surprise, this album has been anticipated by fans who expected something on the Carters’ 10th wedding anniversary in April. But I think it’s safe to say that with nine tracks along with a music video and promo track, fans have gotten their fix.
