The Carters - Everything Is Love album review: The final word in Beyonce and Jay Z's trilogy documenting marital strife and newfound bliss.

On the second of their London Stadium shows, Beyonce and Jay Z announced their first ever joint album with a casual “Album out now” that flashed across a giant screen.

Released exclusively to Tidal, Everything Is Love is the closing chapter – the final word – in a trilogy that documents marital strife and newfound bliss between two of the most innovative artists of a generation. It started with Beyonce’sLemonade, her greatest work to date, filled with cheating accusations and explorations of self-worth; Jay Z followed with 4:44, which saw him make a public apology for his past indiscretions, filled with self-loathing for taking such a risk and almost losing everything.

A collaborative album between Beyonce and Jay Z has been on the cards since the beginning of their relationship (musical and personal) in 2002, but fully fledged rumours of a record began around three years ago. As Hov explained in an interview earlier this year, their art became a kind of “therapy session”, enabling them to work out their issues in the public sphere while still maintaining that essential element of control.
