beyonce jay z 2014 Report: Beyonce & Jay Z To Perform Drunk In Love At Grammys

The “will they, won’t they” continues.

With the Grammy Awards merely days away, music lovers rejoiced at the top of the week when the show’s network CBS confirmed that Beyonce will be taking to the stage at the extravaganza.

Later that day, though, the confirmation commercial was suspiciously pulled and replaced with one that omitted King B and hubby Jay-Z.

Despite the confusion this caused, insiders maintain that the whole thing was a deliberate rouse designed to heighten the “surprise” factor come Sunday.

Now, Hits Daily Double report that the industry’s first couple will be performing their latest smash ‘Drunk In Love’.

With digital downloads and online streams becoming two of the more dominant ingredients in the recipe of most of Billboard Hot 100 hits today, critics started to argue that topping the chart had become easier than ever to achieve.  But, despite the likes of Jay Z, Drake, and Beyonce making headlines in 2013 for moving some of the year’s most impressive numbers on Billboard 200, they have another commonality – no Hot 100 #1 singles.

In fact, they join a bevy of African American hitmakers (i.e. Alicia Keys, Kanye West, J. Cole) who delivered chart-topping albums in late 2012 or 2013 without the aid of a similarly successful single.

Even this generation’s Hot 100 queen Rihanna, whose #1 single ‘Diamonds’ was dethroned two weeks before 2013′s beginning, did not see her name stamped atop the tally [as a leading act] for a song she released this year…
