They first announce the album during a London concert during their tour. “You’ve all given so much love every time we come here—thank you,” Beyoncé tells the crowd. “Because we love you all so much, we have something special for y’all.
Their epic musical contributions—like their joint project Everything Is Love, Bey’s Lemonade visual album, and Jay’s unofficial New York City theme song, “Empire State of Mind,” featuring Alicia Keys—have solidified their position as some of the best artists of our time.
In her documentary Life Is but a Dream, she discusses her miscarriage. “I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life… being pregnant was very much like falling in love,” she says. “[Early into the pregnancy] I flew back to New York to get my checkup—and no heartbeat.
We don’t know the exact date when Beyoncé and Jay-Z first met, but she did give us an idea when talking to Seventeen in 2008. "I was 18 when we first met, 19 when we first started dating,” she revealed. “There was no rush—no one expected me to run off and get married.
Later that month, Jay drops his album 4:44, which seems to confirm his infidelity. “I apologize, our love was one for the ages and I contained us,” he raps. “And if my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do / If they ain’t look at me the same / I would prolly die with all the shame. ” Sigh.
Beyoncé seems to silence possible divorce rumors when she gives a shout-out to Jay-Z during her final performance on the Formation World Tour.
