Beyoncé and JAY-Z dropped a bomb over the weekend, surprising the whole music world with their Everything Is Love joint album. Released Saturday afternoon (Jun. 16), the album was exclusively available on TIDAL. Now two days later, Everything Is Love is out on iTunes and all streaming platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, and SoundCloud Go. The Spotify move is kind of puzzling due to a lyric on the song “NICE,” where Queen Bey sends a shot to the streaming service related to her stellar 2016 album LEMONADE.

“My success can’t be quantified,” raps Bey. “If I gave two fu**s about streaming numbers, would’ve put Lemonade up on Spotify….Fu** you, fu** you,” she continues. The bonus song “SALUD!” remains a TIDAL exclusive, meanwhile fans can also download the album on Amazon. See the credits here and stream it below.
