Nearly a week after Beyonce and Jay-Z began their “On the Run II” tour, the artists unexpectedly released a joint album, sending the internet into a frenzy.
Titled “Everything Is Love,” the nine-track project made its debut on the streaming service Tidal Saturday evening. The couple released a music video for one of the songs, too.
Beyonce also took to Instagram to share the news with a few images, including the cover art, which garnered more than 350,000 in 30 minutes.
As news of the release spread, many took to social media to share their thoughts about The Carters’ latest drop. Many were thrilled, posting gifs and memes to express their excitement.
Others said they began listening immediately and pointed out their favorite songs so far.
The surprise album is currently exclusively on Tidal, so many fans joked about purchasing subscriptions just to hear it.
And a few were just happy to have new music before they headed to the tour, which stops in Atlanta Aug. 25-26 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
