Jay Z Beyonce GREY GOOSE PRE-OSCARS  - Publicity - H 2017

While the duo aired most of their dirty laundry on 2016's 'Lemonade' and 2017's '4:44,' 'Everything Is Love' still offers a revealing look at the famously private couple. Here are the most attention-grabbing lyrics.

The long-awaited joint album from Beyoncé and Jay-Z is finally here. A few dates into their joint On the Run II tour, which kicked off last week in Wales, music’s top power couple unveiled Everything Is Love, a nine-track set that gets real about life in the public eye, life at home and life in a pretty great tax bracket.

While the duo aired most of their dirty laundry on 2016's Lemonade and 2017's 4:44, Everything Is Love still offers a revealing look at the famously private couple. Here are the most attention-grabbing lyrics.


“I said no to the Super Bowl/ You need me, I don't need you/ Every night we in the end zone/ Tell the NFL we in stadiums too” — Jay-Z, seemingly confirming reports that he had turned down an offer to play the 2018 halftime show

”Tell the Grammy's fuck that 0 for 8 shit/ Have you ever seen the crowd goin' apeshit?” — Jay-Z, referencing this year's Grammy Awards, where he was nominated for eight honors — the most of any nominee — but did not win any


“My great-great-grandchildren already rich/ That's a lot of brown children on your Forbes list/ Probably looking around my compound on my fortress ... I be ridin’ around with my seat reclining/ Droppin’ my daughter off at school every morning” — Beyoncé, offering a glimpse of daily life in the Carter household

”Shout-out to Rumi and Sir/ Love, Blue” — Blue Ivy Carter, making a quick cameo and acknowledging her siblings


“My success can’t be quantified/ If I gave two fucks about streaming numbers, would’ve put 'Lemonade' up on Spotify/ Fuck you, fuck you” — Beyoncé, talking about her decision to keep Lemonade a Tidal exclusive


“Had me sitting next to you on the plane/ And I knew straight away, the next time we would speak was like two years away/ You had a man, you shut it down until you two had a break/ I bet that dude rued the day” — Jay-Z, seemingly referencing the early stages of his relationship with Beyoncé

“Real friends, better than your friends/ SMS them, they know all my bidness/ I don’t know what I would do without my crew/ I ain’t makin' no room … we fly, I cry, our souls exposed/ We smoke, we laugh, your stress, my stress/ Closer than kin, I’m blessed, you blessed” — Beyoncé, talking about her tight-knit social life

“If me and my wife beefing, I don't care if the house on fire, I'm dying n—, I ain't leaving/ Ty Ty take care of my kids after he done grieving/ If y'all don't understand that we ain't meant to be friends” — Jay-Z, talking about weathering marital strife and shouting out his longtime friend Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith


“You fucked up the first stone, we had to get remarried”
“Yo chill”
“We keeping it real with these people, right?/ Lucky I ain’t kill you when I met…”
“You know how I met her/ We broke up and got back together/ To get her back I had to sweat her”
— Beyoncé and Jay-Z, referencing the marital struggles they addressed on Lemonade and 4:44

“The ups and downs are worth it/ Long way to go but we’re working/ We’re flawed but we’re still perfect for each other, yeah yeah/ Sometimes I thought we’d never see the light/ We went through hell with heaven on our side/ This beach ain’t always been no paradise” — Beyoncé, commenting on the health of her marriage
