Rumors of a collaborative album have swirled for months, especially after the couple announced a joint tour together. The release of Everything is Love comes at the end of that tour’s leg in England; an announcement was broadcast at Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s London show.

The album features Migos, Pharrell and others, including a guest appearance by Blue Ivy Carter, shouting out her new siblings. The album finds Jay-Z dissing the NFL and the Grammys, and a swipe at Spotify. (Notably, the album comes in the middle of Kanye West’s blitz of weekly albums from his associated artists.)

At post time, the album is only available on Tidal. UPDATE: It’s now on Spotify. Beyoncé and Jay-Z are on the On The Run Tour II through the fall, which hits the Bay Area in September.
