Jay Z and Beyoncé reportedly at work on a secret album

Amidst a sea of rumors that a divorce between pop music’s biggest power couple (sorry Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris) may be imminent, Jay Z and Beyoncé have reportedly recorded an album together, according to Page Six. The story follows up on earlier reports that Jay-Z was making a reaction album to Lemonade, which surfaced earlier this month.

The pair, whose relationship has been embroiled in public speculation and seemingly endless column inches since the release of Bey’s latest album Lemonade, will reportedly air their collective side of the story in song, not in interviews.

“Jay and Beyoncé were never going to do an interview to address all the questions that came up after Lemonade. It’s more their style to respond through music,” said the source to Page Six.

A collaborative album between the spouses has been rumored for years, but fans have never actually gotten one. That said, the couple has worked together on numerous joint songs over the time they’ve been together, though even their sonic relationship has required increasing amounts of lubricant as time has passed — 2002’s Crazy In Love eventually gave way to 2013’s Drunk In Love, for example.

The new record will reportedly deal with the cheating allegations which surfaced as part of Lemonade, and was recorded in secret, the source said. That’s a particularly impressive feat, considering that Beyoncé has been on her Formation World Tour for some time now. But given how long rumors have circulated that the pair have been collaborating, much of the music could have been made before the songstress hit the road in the first place.

Though neither of the celebrity musicians’ camps has yet to publicly acknowledge the upcoming release, or say where it will be listenable, our best guess is that any collaborative effort will probably be a Tidal exclusive — given that they own the place.
