We all knew that this album was going to happen, sooner or later. It’s a trend embedded deep in the music industry. From Cher and Sonny Bono, Kenny Latimore and Chante Moore and more recently Faith Evans and Notorious B.I.G Husband-wife albums eventually happen and are highly-anticipated. Beyonce and Jay-Z show a united front as they release their first joint album EVERYTHING IS LOVE under the name The Carters.
This is an album that could be confusing to listen as a single unit but when you factor in the previous albums from the couple, the vengeful Lemonade (which confirmed the “elevator incident” preceding it) and the apologetic 4:44 this third album in the series makes sense (as well as cent$).
Let’s forget the fact that this album was released a day after the Kanye West-produced Nasir album. Let’s…
What is a Jay-Z album without some big money talk? Queen Bey is also on her braggadocios tip (this is classified as a hip-hop album). With uncredited appearances by Quavo and Offset on Apesh*t and Pharrell and Ty Dolla $ign. This album is mostly about the Carters, their suceess, their love and how they got through the “Becky with the good hair” incidents.
Jay-Z also discloses why he didn’t attend Kanye West and Kim’s wedding (contrary to popular belief that was beef between Beyonce and Kim), he had a marriage to fix and anything else was unimportant. You’ve got to respect the man for that. Some shots seem to sent Kanye’s direction on the song Friends. Without preempting much below is my review.
