Surprise! Beyonce and Jay Z have dropped a surprise album and single. It’s available on their Tidal service, but the single and video are here. “Ape-sh*t” is terrific. What a nice summer surprise. But why a Saturday at 6pm? Just to see who’s paying attention?
It does like the Louvre Museum in Paris let them shoot the video there. If so, that would be history making. But money talks, and even the Louvre needs surprise cash.
Here’s the tracklist:
HEARD ABOUT US
The album is short, in keeping with Kanye West’s new albums which are all 23 minutes. “Everything is Love” has interesting timing– designed to knock Kanye off the top of the charts instantly. So far the new album is only available on Tidal, Jay Z’s service. But my guess is on Monday it goes to Apple Music and iTunes and Spotify. They want BIG numbers here. Tidal is a private, small club.
