LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Jay-Z and Beyonce are keeping up a family tradition, dropping a surprise album before anyone knew it was coming.
The couple released a joint album that touches on the rapper’s disgust at this year’s Grammy Awards and features a shout out from their dughter Blue Ivy to her siblings.
The nine-track album “Everything Is Love” dropped Saturday on the Tidal music streaming service that Jay-Z partially owns.
The album features Beyonce rapping on songs more than she has done on previous releases.
One song that features a profanity in its title includes Jay-Z lashing out at the Grammys. He was the top nominee at February’s awards show, but left empty-handed.
In 2013, Beyonce released the self-titled album “Beyonce” without any notice.
