It’s been less than 24 hours since Beyoncé and JAY-Z dropped their joint album Everything Is Love, and Common has already dubbed it one of the best projects of the year. TMZ caught up with the rapper Saturday night to ask him how he feels about marital collab. "That album is dope,” Common gushes. “I love that shit."
Judging by his response, Common was either treated to an early listen of the project or had it on repeat since it debuted Saturday afternoon. “That’s one of my favorite albums of this year,” Common declared.
The respect is clearly mutual, considering JAY-Z interpolated Common’s song "The Light" on "713," the fifth track on Everything Is Love.
JAY and Bey finally dropped their long-rumored joint album on Saturday during their On the Run II World Tour. On the album, the couple open up about everything from the Grammys to infidelity to Hov allegedly turning down the Super Bowl 2018 Halftime Show. JAY may have also addressed his relationship with Kanye and rumors about his alleged son Rymir Satterthwaite.
During their show in London, the Carters also dedicated “Young Forever” to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire. “This goes out to the family and friends of the victims of the Grenfell fire, God bless you,” Beyoncé told the crowd on Saturday night.
The nine-track project was accompanied by a video for their song “Apeshit,” filmed in the Louvre. Watch the video for “Apeshit” below.
