United States rapper Jay-Z and his superstar wife Beyonce have surprised fans by releasing a new album that no one saw coming.
The couple released the joint album, titled ‘ Everything is Love ‘, on the Tidal music streaming service.
The nine-track album features a shout out from their daughter Blue Ivy to her twin siblings.
Beyonce also raps more in the songs than she has ever done previously.
One track also has Jay-Z lashing out at the Grammy Awards . This is not the first time Beyonce has surprised fans, in 2013 she dropped her self-titled album without any notice.
The fans took to social media to express their opinions
Beyonce & Jay-Z release individual albums where they wrestle with their personal pain and then an album together to celebrate the journey. Talk about genius – Loving all the way to the Bank. #EverythingIsLove #TheCarters
