Beyonce and Jay-Z's "Apeshit" Was a Migos Demo Track First

Beyoncé and Jay-Z's new album is available to stream and download - listen

The nine-track set features extensive writing credits from both Beyonce and Jay-Z, with production from Pharrell Williams, Cool & Dre and EI Michels among others.

But some fans aren't happy you can only get the album on Tidal.

If you are going to hang with the Carters, you need to be aware of the omertà.

Jay-Z vents frustration several times on the album about legal action against him.

Making no apologies for his success, Jay-Z raps, "Your president tweeting about Hov like he knows us / My road to the top was to take what you owe us".

Apart from being the birth date of Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Tina Knowles, the number four features heavily in Bey and Jay-themed events. On her very first lyrics, Beyonce beckons to her husband, "Let's make love in the summertime".

On "Nice", Jay-Z denounces the subpoena and suggests he is being targeted because he is a successful African American, wondering why he did not face such scrutiny in his earlier life as a Brooklyn drug dealer. Dagens Naeringsliv, a business newspaper in Norway where Tidal had its roots before Jay-Z's purchase, last month said that the company had been inflating its figures, a charge the firm denied. They called themselves The Carters in the album.

Nas and Jay-z previously had a decade long beef starting in the 1990s that mostly played out on wax. The On The Run II Tour showed them renewing their vows in front of their children.
