JAY-Z Confirms Joint Album With Beyonce

Published: Wednesday 29th Nov 2017 by Sam

Remember the long rumored collaboration album between Beyonce and JAY-Z?

It never materalized, but it does exist.

And the confirmation comes courtesy of Jigga himself!

Full story below…

In a candid interview with the NY Times (which arrives a day after he was revealed frontrunner at the 2018 Grammys), Jay said of the elusive LP:

“We were using our art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together. And then the music she was making at that time was further along. So her album [‘Lemonade’] came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on. There was never a point where it was like, ‘I’m making this album.’ I was right there the entire time … It just felt like, she should go first and share her truths with the world.”

He went on to add that he never thought of his project ‘4:44’ as a response to her record while making it. The Roc Nation mogul also teased that some of the material from the unreleased album is still in the vault.

***********

We’re torn.

A part of us would naturally love to hear the project and we daydream about the musical, visual, and thematic possibilities had it come to fruition. After all, it’s hard to top their individual or collective superstardom. Or their marriage narrative.

However, given the serious topical nature of both records, all the reasons it could have “worked” could easily been the reasons it potentially would backfire.

Indeed on the one hand, they’re so private that a window-peek into their hardships in such a way would have been kinda groundbreaking. A Mr & Mrs Carter, OutKast ‘Speakerboxxx/The Love Below’ type concept.

Yet, on the other, it could have looked like commercialising and commoditising the world’s fascination with them. Something which could have been deemed overkill and ironically quench collective interest in “The Carters.”

Needless to say, there’s a lot of “shoulda, woulda, coulda’s.” Enough of our ranting, though. Do you want to hear the joint album? Let us know…

Your thoughts?

    It’s already overkill. I’m actually sick of them making music together and a whole album would be overplayed, overblown and overrated. They played drunk in love to DEATH. so they can keep this lil joint album

    • Rosy November 29, 2017

      Boring at best please make it stop are they desperate for money his tour flop now a joint album go away big lip

  2. ??? November 29, 2017

    • Electrikblue November 29, 2017

      You comment on any and everything Beyonce I seriously believe you are obsessed and can’t stabs the fact that she’s successful while you’re using library computers to post comments. Tuh

  3. Totally November 29, 2017

    I’m indifferent. I wanna hear Beyoncé SING. I feel like Jay will just get in the way.

  4. Danyboo November 29, 2017

    I use to be very excited for this. Not so much anymore I’d rather see an original destiny child reunion

    • Totally November 29, 2017

      ^^^Thiiissssssssss.

      • Danyboo November 29, 2017

        It would be epic a joint album tho

      • iamdiego November 30, 2017

        MAYBE THEY SHOULD REALEASE THE JOINT ALBUM AS A TIDAL EXCLUSIVE (SINCE YALL ACT LIKE YALL DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT) … AND I’D LOVE A DC REUNION WITH ALL THE GIRLS.!!! STADIUM TOUR, ALBUM, AND AWARD SHOWS. SHOW THEM HOW A REAL REUNION IS SUPPOSED TO BE. LIKE AT THE END OF DREAMGIRLS LOL.

  5. Drinkmybussyjuice November 29, 2017

    As huge of a beyonce fan i am im not here for this. I dont really car for jay z’s music and when i watch the joint tour i skip over his parts.

  6. pat November 29, 2017

    it won’t surface…..at this point its a 50/50 chance it could flop….people are low key getting over them

  7. #JACKIE November 29, 2017

    He needs to retire….. for real this time.

  8. Kaz November 29, 2017

    Tired of both of them. Just go away…for a while. For some years. #OverExposure #Overkill

  9. fatusankoh November 29, 2017

    I love to hair Bey beautiful voice

  10. Anthony November 29, 2017

    How are people over Beyoncé when she just finished a sold-out stadium tour and had the highest selling album worldwide of last year? People have been praying for her downfall since BDay. It’s quite laughable.

    • Totally November 29, 2017

      Yeah. Bey is doing just fine. And selling far better than a lot of the younger popstars as well.

    • ??? November 29, 2017

      lol bye roaches with your delusions. adele’s album last year says hello, pun intended lmao. you know, the one that outsold koolaid’s total sales in a matter of hours? lmfao

      • Totally November 29, 2017

        @Suicide Racist, Fvck outta my comment vicinity. I know this is your dumbass constantly stalking Beyonce posts commenting on everybody’s shitt with the same retarded pattern of “lol…roaches…koolaid… lmfaooo”. Delegate all this free time you have to reading a dictionary you racist bish. I know you exhaust so much anger and bitterness because your pasty ass can’t walk under the sun without God lighting that ass up, but you gotta just buy sunscreen like everybody else and get over it.

        I’ve been trying my hardest to ignore your dumbass. Sick of scrolling past your brain dead ass and these “lmfaaoo” comments. All this fun you’re having about dumb shitt. Like b****. Get excited about a book b****. Get excited about that. Get the fvck off my lawn.

  11. Jeans November 29, 2017

    Uuuugh, tired of them

  12. Anne November 29, 2017

    It has to and should come out eventually and when it does there will of course be an audience for it because it’s Beyonce and Jay Z dueting on a full album for the first time. I don’t know about singles but the album sales would be huge.

    • Anne November 29, 2017

      They should wait until AFTER Beyonce releaes and finishes touring on her successful Lion King project.

    • ??? November 29, 2017

      lol u mean like the ratings for on the run? lmfao

  13. Yonce November 29, 2017

    I’m here for it. Bey could also give us a DC5 album that all of us DC fans have been begging for her to do.

  14. Ocean November 29, 2017

    They do enough singles together that it makes sense…. should have done it a long time ago.

    They will do another tour together because that’s what brings the money in then Beyonce will take a long break after this stint

    I bet there will be a HBO roll out…as long as they don’t make this tidal exclusive that really is annoying

    • ??? November 29, 2017

      lol they couldn’t even get a million viewers separately or together. hbo ain’t checking for them lmao.

      • iamdiego November 30, 2017

        ONLY THE HARDCORE FANS WATCH ON HBO AND MORE THAN LIKELY WE ONLY SUBSCRIBE TO THE CHANNEL BECAUSE OF HER. THE KIIII IS THAT MOST OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC GO TO THE SHOWS. YOU FORGET THAT ALL HER SHOWS SELL OUT THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE TOUR. HBO WILL GET EXCLUSIVES UNTIL BEYONCE TEAMS UP WITH NETFLIX.

  15. Tim Brown November 29, 2017

    No thank you

  16. ??? November 29, 2017

    I’m here for it

  20. DanYiel Iman November 29, 2017

    Actually he said they started as a duet album but both talked about things that hit home for one another!!

  21. crookly November 29, 2017

    whichever way they choose it will be nothing short of mediocre and forgetful martial, repetitive and generic lyrics with no real meaning to them.

  22. Julian November 30, 2017

    The joint album rumours have been around for what, like five years now? So I guess it’s pretty safe to say that everybody is over it at this point.

  23. music lover November 30, 2017

    UM HERE FOR IT BUT AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO WAS HOPING AND PRAYING FOR DC REUNION ALBUM?
