Everything Is Love, the long-awaited joint album from The Carters, gave us everything we’d been hoping for. Released in trademark world-stopping fashion, it’s a nine-song toast (with "Salud!" serving as a bonus track) to the guests of honor: themselves. And we’re happy to raise our glasses in salute of their indisputable success.
The album celebrates their impact, their heritage, their resilience as a couple, their friends, Donald Trump, the NFL, Jay's drug-dealer past, and their wealth. All to be expected, right? Wrong. We didn’t expect to hear Bey arguably doing as much rapping as she did singing.
With both Carters in their bag and trading bars, we decided to put them head-to-head on a track-by-track face-off. We know they brag different, but who pulled off the biggest flexes lyrically?
