The Carters shocked and delighted fans on Saturday, June 16, when they dropped their new album Everything Is Love on TIDAL. Even celebrities are reacting to Everything Is Love, because no one is immune from the combined power of new Beyoncé and JAY-Z music. Their nine-track album (10 if you count the TIDAL exclusive song "SALUD!") has been out for a mere 24 hours, but it's already generated enough buzz to make it a serious contender for album of the year.
Currently, Everything Is Love is exclusively available through TIDAL, a music streaming service that's owned in part by JAY-Z. Thankfully, they offer one-month free trials, so fans can listen to Queen Bey and JAY-Z's new songs without having to make a long-term commitment to yet another streaming service. Even without the service, the music video for "Apesh*t" — a Louvre set masterpiece that's loaded with meaning — is available to everyone via YouTube.
People are using social media to respond to Everything Is Love in a major way. All you have to do is head over to Twitter, to see fans offering in-depth analysis of the video, serving up memes, or simply praising the surprise album. Among the many members of the Beyhive who are loving the new tracks, are quite a few celebrities who are already just as obsessed with Everything Is Love as you are.
