Reports of a Jay-Z and Beyonce collaboration project have been surfing the web the internet for years now! Back in 2015, the duo sparked the rumors with these photos. Fast forward a year, the photos ended up being used for the On The Run Tour. At this point, we can’t ignore the signs. Here’s the evidence! According to a few members of the BeyHive, the Ticketmaster website briefly had a page to purchase tickets for a Jay and Bey tour. Before the page was taken down, a few fans were able to grab screenshots. It’s unsure if the tour would support the duo’s last individual projects or if it would promote a new one.
Back in 2016, Beyonce stopped the world when she released her most personal album to date with the highly acclaimed project Lemonade. The following year, Jay-Z did the same with the release of 4:44. Both albums share similarities and explore themes including the power couples relationship and the supposed infidelity. Jay Z revealed not only were both projects therapeutical for their relationship but they were indeed working on an epic joint project of their own. “We were using our art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together,” he explained to NYT executive editor Dean Baquet. “And then the music she was making at that time was further along. So her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on,” he continued. Now that both artists released their individual projects, will the long-awaited joint album with a tour finally hit the scene in 2018? We don”t know but you better get those Tidal memberships ready just in case it does!
