According to the report, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been working on their secret album for some time now, and the work of art is complete. In another attempt to bolster their struggling music service, the new Bey-Jay collaboration will be released on Tidal.

Fans have been waiting for Beyoncé and Jay-Z to talk about Lemonade and let everyone know what whether the album was purely art, or if Bey was singing about real issues in their marriage. According to a Page Six source, talking about the album was never in the plans. “Jay and Beyoncé were never going to do an interview to address all the questions that came up after Lemonade. It’s more their style to respond through music,” their source claims.
Beyoncé’s newest album Lemonade was released on April 23, just weeks before the Met Gala. Bey’s album told the tale of a cheating husband and reignited rumors that Jay-Z cheated on Beyoncé with someone, a recurring theme in their marriage. Naturally, rumors began to circulate that Beyoncé and Jay-Z were on the brink of divorce.
Beyoncé divorce rumors are nothing new, and have been plaguing the famous couple for several years. The idea that Beyoncé was going to divorce Jay Z for cheating on her really heated up after the Met Gala two years ago when Bey’s sister, Solange, attacked Jay Z in an elevator after a Met Gala afterparty. It was presumed that Solange was upset with Jay Z over the cheating rumors with one of Lemonade‘s”Becky with the good hair” suspects, Rachel Roy, who had been present at the event that night.

Whether Jay Z cheated on Beyoncé or not, the hip-hop couple seems happy to continue cashing in on the drama surrounding their ongoing divorce rumors. While many fans are waiting for Jay-Z to respond to Beyoncé’s cheating allegations on Lemonade, it turns out that the couple has a different idea right now.
This certainly isn’t the first time that Beyoncé and Jay Z have collaborated. However, it is unknown how long they have been working on this joint album together. Beyoncé is currently in the middle of her Formation World Tour, and is understandably very busy. With rumors of a new joint album with Jay-Z on the horizon, does this mean fans will be treated to another joint tour like their recently completed On The Run tour?

With Beyoncé and Jay-Z putting together a joint album, many fans want to know if Jay-Z is still going to put out a response to Lemonade. Right after Beyoncé’s visual album dropped, there were rumors that the Brooklyn rapper had a huge response planned that would tell his side of the story and possibly even debunk those cheating rumors. There was also talk that he might come right out and identify exactly who “Becky with the good hair” is and put an end to the speculation and the harassment of possible suspects by Beyoncé’s loyal fanbase.
Are Beyoncé and Jay-Z really getting ready to drop a joint album that they worked on together in secret? And if so, does this mean that Jay-Z is no longer going to put out his own response to Lemonade? Whatever the case may be, it really looks like Bey and Jay aren’t having all the marital problems that have been rumored for years now and instead, the hip-hop super couple are cashing in on the madness.
