Beyonce & Jay-Z Release New Album ‘Everything Is Love’ To Spotify, Apple Music, & iTunes

Published: Monday 18th Jun 2018 by Sam

Beyonce and Jay-Z broke the internet with the surprise release of their joint album ‘Everything Is Love’ on Saturday and now they’re shaking things up all over again.

For, after dropping the LP as a TIDAL exclusive, the pair have gone wide with the project – not just releasing it to iTunes (as has been customary with their recent efforts) but also on streaming giants Spotify and Apple Music.

Details below…

The move ends a 48 hour exclusivity window on TIDAL, thus making the set effectively available everywhere.

But there’s an interesting twist.

The Carters are doing streaming on their terms.

For, they are one of the first acts to embrace Spotify’s Premium only model. Indeed, as reported here on That Grape Juice, the market-leader revealed a game-changing move which will see select albums only made available to those who use the service’s paid tier. A pivot many felt was designed to attract superstar acts wary of the returns received from the free, ad-supported version of Spotify; acts who also are keen to assert an air of premium about their product. Put simply, one must pay to hear it.

Chart-wise, the timing is incredibly apt for Bey and Jay too.

Because Billboard have just announced that their album tally is being revised this month to give heavier weighting to streams from paid-for platforms rather than free services ala YouTube and Spotify entry-level tier.

With ‘Everything Is Love’ now accessible to all, it’s about to be quite the week!

In the here and now, check out the video for ‘APES**T’ here…

Tidbit: Anyone else find this fascinating given Bey’s shunning of streaming for ‘Lemonade’ (which she even sung about on this project)?

    • B. Mike June 18, 2018

      Imma have to agree. LOOOOOVE Bey, but not trying to hear her rap.

    • ??? June 18, 2018

      lmao yesss hunni, liberation sh*ts all over everything is desperation lmfaoooooo

  4. Whoops ???‍♀️?? June 18, 2018

    I like the picture they chose for the cover. And the album is actually good too imo. A** shtt has grown on me, I like the song. But regardless, some of the comments about this album seem so dramatic. Like people are offended that they don’t like it. It’s not the end of the world. I promise. If you don’t like it, that is okay. I understand people want Beyoncé to work to her potential, but I wasnt expecting dangerously in Love part 3 on this album. It’s meant to be a hip hop record. I do prefer her solo stuff though. She’ll probably exercise her voice more there, where it matters more.

  5. True T June 18, 2018

    Beyonce is not aging well ears and neck are really big for a woman and her nose is looking more like the jacksons every year

    • XYZ June 18, 2018

      Oh please, she looks amazing and you know that. With that being said, her ears have always been quite big, but whatever. Everyone is allowed to have flaws

    • ??! June 18, 2018

      And how are you aging?

    • Fancy BISH June 18, 2018

      GIRL GOODBYE, Bey looks like she hops in a DeLorean on some Back To The Future ish lol….she looks the same!

      • ??? June 18, 2018

        lmao you need your eyes checked.

      • Fancy BISH June 18, 2018

        You need Steve Urkel glasses lmao ? I have 20/20 vision hunnie ??

      • ??? June 18, 2018

        lmao then you should sue the doctor that lied to you hunni, even steve urkel glasses couldnt help you lmfaooooo

      • Fancy BISH June 18, 2018

        I can see that Done Li is flopping like pancakes at IHOP lmao ?

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 18, 2018

      She is aging well for a woman that has been in the spotlight since 10 years old and for a woman that does not possess the natural beauty women like Ashanti, Rihanna, or even Toni Braxton has. Remember Beyonce is a huge celebrity so it is her celebrity that matters way more than her looks. Everything you criticized her on is temporary and fixable. She just had two kids and is already touring again and recording new solo material and videos. Strange how people are quick to criticize women but never have anything to say about men. So you buying her album and concert tickets or nah?

    • ??? June 18, 2018

      lmao bleaching will do that to a roach, bishhh looks like shes already knocking on 50 lmfaoooo

      • Fancy BISH June 18, 2018

        Why don’t you go stream Done Li’s new flop lmao ? Bey will be just fine without the likes of you ??

      • ??? June 18, 2018

        lmaoooo why dont you help roach stream her bullsh*t so she doesnt have to lie about her numbers & get a GOLD PLAQUE for 500k PURE SALES within a month just like Slay Li did lmfaoooooo

  6. XYZ June 18, 2018

    Don’t know how to feel about this. It‘s ok, but not good IMO. God that I have Spotify premium, cause I would not want to invest extra cash in that album. Personally, I think they try to sell themselves on a level, where I just expect a bit more of them. For me, the album is just not diverse enough and sounds a bit like a very long song.

    • ??! June 18, 2018

      You obviously didn’t listen to the whole album.

      • BootzShza June 18, 2018

        Obviously it’s called a personal opinion. You know, what we all have and are free to exercise?

      • BootzShza June 18, 2018

        You can tell XYZ is very careful with their wording. Everything is “IMO” “personally” “for me.” I think they are trying hard to not have stans jump down their throats for voicing their own personal opinions, which is unfortunate.

      • XYZ June 18, 2018

        @bootzshza – thank you for noticing. Actually, I think that music is always subjective and I‘m here to just state my opinion about the album. Of course others can have a different opinion and we can talk what they liked, what parts I liked or disliked. This is what this forum should be about, shouldn’t it?

        On the other hand, you‘re correct – these days you need to be very careful of your wording, cause just stating a different opinion can cause a stan war. People are very aggressive these days and I seriously don’t get why. I have every right to think the album‘s not that good, but people think that they have the right to not allow this opinion, which is really weird

      • ??? June 18, 2018

        lmao you dont have to be careful with your words hun, if its HOT GARBAGE then call it what it is, HOT RATCHET GARBAGE. No need to be scared of the roaches, thats what they make Raid for lmfaooooooo

  7. SNF June 18, 2018

    The real generous queen. ??

  8. Erica June 18, 2018

    three good songs won’t listen again

  9. Meme June 18, 2018

    The album is cool for what it is. jay and bey talk about their status, material things and their money too much for my likings. I feel like it sounds like 2 old ppl trying to keep up with the times instead of making timeless music. And Beyonce tries way too hard, I’m over her rap singing. I’ll probably not listen to this album again.

    • DanYiel Iman June 18, 2018

      Reminds me of Ri-Whine-A doing the same thing but since she’s your fave god forbid you speak ill ✌?? of her!!✌??

    • Alex June 18, 2018

      You not listening again is not gonnna affect anything. Good day ✌???‍♂️

      • Meme June 18, 2018

        I’m sure it wouldn’t affect anything. I’m just on a public blog giving my honest opinion. Sorry if you’re offended.

    • Lewey June 18, 2018

      Maybe if you didn’t listen to it with a negative mindset you would be inspired. The album is a history lesson for BLACKS. And they are setting the blueprint for us to make our own moves because clearly, the white people in power are not helping as much as they should. I respect their artistry and I have an open mind about what they are trying to do. Black art is just as good as the European art throughout the Louvre but is not represented as such. So, they brought their own art and showcased it throughout the Louvre. The album has multiple meanings, but you will only see it if you listen with an open mind.

      • ??? June 18, 2018

        lmao girl stop, camel & his pet roach are not “deep”, theyre con artists making money off of their dumb ass roaches THINKING that theyre so deep & pro black. they know their roaches are idiots who will buy into their bullsh*t LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

      • Meme June 18, 2018

        Thank you for breaking that down. Don’t get me wrong I appreciate them and their work and what they mean to the black community. And I mean that. But if you have the break down the meaning of the music for me to enjoy is it, it doesn’t help. Love the meaning but that doesn’t change the fact that sonically it doesn’t move me.

    • Brian June 18, 2018

      THIS IS THE TRUEST THING I’VE READ! All they do is talk about how rich they are for 7 of the 9 songs. It’s really disgusting after a while. I’m really not listening to it again.

  10. Intro June 18, 2018

    Let’s talk about those low notes she hits in her second verse on ‘boss’…

  11. DanYiel Iman June 18, 2018

    I’m excited about this album!!

  12. Caleb June 18, 2018

    Well that was quick.

  13. Datredd23 June 18, 2018

    Maria alone off Liberation > Everything is Love

    Maria is a masterpiece love this album !

    • Lewey June 18, 2018

      Yes, and the reason its so hott is because of its a sample of a Michael Jackson song… you know one of Beyonce only contemporaries…

      • XYZ June 18, 2018

        WTF? Michael is not one of Beyoncé’s contemporaries, and even if he was, than he would be one of Christina’s as well, as she and Beyonce are around the same age and became famous in the same timespan.

      • ??? June 18, 2018

        lmao bissh bye, MJ will NEVER be a contemporary to roach, he’s an actual LEGEND with TALENT. roach hasn’t even matched Xtina’s total album sales, so in reality roach is just one of Xtina’s LESSORS. you roaches need to seek help for your delusions lmfaooooo

    • Lewey June 18, 2018

      CHRISTINA IS NOT BEYONCE’S CONTEMPORARY!!! Which is why her album is below her and jays. DONT EVER DO THAT AGAIN. XTINA had a cute career in the late 90’s to early 00’s. However, she has not seen the top of the charts since then. DON’T DO THAT.

      • ??? June 18, 2018

        lmao lies bishh, roach hasnt seen the top of the charts since LAST DECADE. Xtina had a # 1 FIVE years ago, and her album sales are STILL higher than roach’s. youre right, Xtina is not one of roach’s contemporaries, shes her SUPERIOR BISHH!! More hits and more records sold. do your research before you seethe roach lmfaooooo

    • Lewey June 18, 2018

      AND IDIOTS!!! I was referring to her career and Michael’s. She has been hot for over 20 years. There are only a few musicians on this planet and in herstory that can relate. XTINA IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

      • Datredd23 June 18, 2018

        Christina took a 6 year break she does not care about charts and sales ! Her album was masterful and her fans loved it! IT reached number one on many iTunes Charts worldwide she doesn’t need frontloaded hype and sales she’s doing fine sis!

      • ??? June 18, 2018

        LMAO sorry bug, Xtina has been rocking for the last 20 YEARS, and she s done it WITHOUT being pimped out by her slave master like roach. Roach isnt even one of LATOYA’S contemporaries, so you can sit with that delusion sweetie, her little career is nowhere near in comparison to King Michael. Numbers dont lie, roaches do lmfaoooooooooooooooooo

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 18, 2018

      I just heard Maria and it is trash ? as is xtinas voice on it. Lol these xtina Stans couldn’t be more delusional if u paid them. Autotune aside Jay and Bey voice and music is way better and bigger than xtina crap music and even crappier vocals. Xtina isn’t even arena status let alone stadium. The real joke is I that EVERYTHING might still go #1 despite DESPERATION

      • Datredd23 June 18, 2018

        YOU know Maria is good please stop it.

      • ??? June 18, 2018

        lmao sit yo fat ass down bug, Xtina can sing RINGS around roach and her roach screetching even if she had laryngitis. you bugs KILL me acting like roach and her goat rattling can be called singing. Xtina’s voice has been co-signed by WHITNEY bishh, Whitney f****** Houston, AND Queen Celine. Nobody co-signs roach’s try hard screetching except you delusional bugs. so how much is she paying YOU to be so dumb? lmfaoooooooooooooooo

  14. gina June 18, 2018

    Sick of these two with their pretentious bullsh*t and sneaky chart manipulation tactics. i hope this mess flops, ven though we all know she struggles to sell past 1 million.

    • Lewey June 18, 2018

      lemonade is at 1.8 million (PHYSICAL COPIES SOLD) in America alone. You call that struggling???? Then I guess everyone who released an album this year is claiming bankrupt….

      • ??? June 18, 2018

        lmfaoo 1.8 million after 2 YEARS when people like Taylor & Adele sell TWICE as much within 2 WEEKS?????

        lmfao thats called STRUGGLING, bug lmfaoooooooooooooo.

  15. Jacob June 18, 2018

    W are going to make them billionaires individually

  16. DIABETES UNBOTHERED i June 18, 2018

    Lol these xtina Stans couldn’t be more delusional if u paid them. Autotune aside Jay and Bey voice and music is way better than xtina crap music and even crappier vocals. Xtina isn’t even arena status let alone stadium. The real joke is I that EVERYTHING might still go #1 despite DESPERATION

    • Lewey June 18, 2018


    • ??? June 18, 2018

      lmao thats why camel & his roach released EVERYTHING IS DESPERATION to tidal first, then itunes right? and also why camel has roach rapping right,cuz even he knows her roach screetching is no match for Xtina’s LEGENDARY VOCALS. delusional? lmfaoooooo you roaches wrote the book & are starring in the movie called DELUSIONS OF A DESPERATE ROACH lmfaooooooooooooooooooo

    • ??? June 18, 2018

      lmao ps, xtina NEVER had to give away free tickets in the parking lot to fill seats on any of her tours like the roach couple is doing now lmfaoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  17. stan June 18, 2018

    good, because tidal is on its death bed :\

  18. 4U2SEE June 18, 2018

    Beyonce got alot of g@y fans who don’t want to be black in this world. Beyonce had to release something for them so they can have this drama going since they think women do this to keep other ones pressed. Then their tickets sales was once reported, given away for free for OTR 2 having the same ole songs. So they have to use what they had to rush this album to hype it up for more sales. Also, since Tidal is failing they use other resources like Spotify. Fans didn’t care for the tour with Jay Z; so beyonce had to support her cheating husband with some trap music. This is too funny, that people are mad crazy beefing out over them but she is trying to use them to keep Jay at her concert. They hated Jay so much I can picture him saying: (in Jay’s voice) ” yo B why are all these f*** throwing tampons at me?” PRESSED!!!!! LOL

    • XYZ June 18, 2018

      So true. I‘m just going to see her, couldn’t care less bout him. Will have a drink every time he comes up on stage alone.

  19. DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 18, 2018

    BEYS name is ATLEAST 25 times bigger than StrainTina Hogorrilla and thats #FACT

    • Datredd23 June 18, 2018

      Real music lovers know liberation Is masterful and a coehesive body of work not like that incoherent trash Everything

    • ??? June 18, 2018

      lmao xtina=25 million total albums sold.

      roach=18 million total albums sold.

      roach’s name is only big to bug spray companies LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

      • DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 18, 2018

        Beys career stats are far more impressive than straintinas. 10 #1 hits and counting, 8 #1 albums soon to be 9, 10 if you count dreamgirls soundtrack. 20+ grammys, and over 35 million sold US and over 70 million sold ww. not to mention STADIUM STATUS and 20+ years of relavance. and u can not blame xtinas lack of relavance on breaks cuz she has a decent amount of albums released in the last 20 years, 2/3rds of them FLOPS… bey has no flop albums

    • mr.m June 18, 2018

      WELL bey was an opening act for xtina in “first ever tour” lol
      + and she said she want to be like xtina when she first stated her solo career
      so I don’t know what are you taking about hmmmm lmao
      stay pressed.

  20. Ajm265 June 18, 2018

    This shut us absolute trash as a B fan I want them to go back and redo this album with good songs.

  21. DIABETES UNBOTHERED June 18, 2018
