"Everything is Love" is a victory lap from a couple who have mined their relationship for universal truths and then presented them as art. It's a fierce love letter to success, to family, to blackness - but, most of all, to each other.

    A guide to Beyonce and Jay-Z's surprise joint album 'Everything is Love'
    There is arguably no couple better at controlling their own press than Beyoncé and Jay-Z. When a video surfaced in 2014 showing Bey's younger sister Solange attacking her brother-in-law in an elevator, rumors of a strained marriage proliferated. Rather than battle the tabloids, the spouses used the gossip to fuel two critically beloved, commercially successful records: "Lemonade" and "4:44."
