As usual, fans were ripe with opinions about the surprise project as soon as it was released.
With no warning, Beyoncé and Jay-Z released their long-rumored collaborative project exclusively on Tidal Saturday evening. The 9-track project, titled Everything Is Love, features contributions from Ty Dolla $ign, Pharrell, Quavo, Offset, Nav, and many more. The release also came complete with a Louvre-set video for “APESHIT,” and fans of the Carters (their official group name) did not know how to process it all.
If you happened to be on Twitter anytime after 6 last night, you probably saw your fair share of opinions, memes, and jokes about the project. Discussion centered around the possible passive-aggressive move towards Nas and Kanye West, who released Nasir on Friday, Beyoncé’s impressive rapping abilities, the links between Lemonade, 4:44, and Everything Is Love, and the mixed feelings about Tidal subscriptions.
Check out some of the most popular and memorable tweets about the album below. You can listen to the full project, via Taial (it’s also available for purchase), here.
Lemonade: you cheating bastard, how dare you cheat on all of this
4:44: I’m sorry, I’m a rubbish of a man, I can do better, I’ll be better
Everything is love: regardless of what has happened in the past we love each other and we are better off together. #EverythingIsLove
