I'm shocked Beyoncé and Jay Z are collaborating on an album! — said no one
Is there anything Beyoncé and Jay Z don't do together?
They rock the red carpet, make beautiful babies, dominated the world in their 2014 On the Run tour and, heck, have probably even orchestrated all those crazy cheating scandal rumors for the PR, as well.
Now, word on the street has it the couple might debut a joint album just in time for Christmas. That's right, sources say that their much talked about collaboration will drop as soon as December.
Page Six reported in May that the secretly recorded album is, in essence, the couple's response to all the speculation Beyoncé's lyric "Becky with the good hair" set off when she debuted her visual album, Lemonade, back in April.
"Jay and Beyoncé were never going to do an interview to address all the questions that came up after Lemonade," a source told Page Six. "It’s more their style to respond through music."
Ain't that the truth. Time and again, gossip and rumors have swirled around the state of Beyoncé and Jay Z's relationship, but they — or any of their reps — have never once publicly addressed any of the talk.
But that's probably because they want the rumors to keep flowing, at least according to Beyoncé's dad, Mathew Knowles, who claims Beyoncé and Jay Z created and perpetuated all of the divorce speculation that was making the rounds before the On the Run tour started up. Knowles even went so far as to say the couple staged the infamous Solange/Jay Z brawl at an after-party for the Met Gala in May 2014.
"[They needed something to] ignite the tour. It's called a Jedi mind trick," Knowles said on a radio show in 2014. "A Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of times. All I know is that everyone is talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange's album sales went up 200 percent."
Of course, the Beyhive isn't really worrying too much about cheating gossip right now. They're just freaking out at the prospect of new music from their favorite power couple.
