Jay-Z & Beyonce Drop Everything Is Love Joint Album & Video For Apes**t

Jay-Z and Beyonce surprise fans at the beginning of their OTR II tour by dropping their debut joint album, Everything Is Love and the video for “Apesh**t.” The first single is a trap and dance hybrid with Beyonce’s voice being touched by electronics. In the video, the couple goes through several costume changes in the Louvre museum in France. There are young Black people kneeling, a couple in a bedroom and several dancers. They end the visual by looking at the Mona Lisa together. Those who complained about a lack of new music for their current tour should be satisfied. Everything Is Love has appearances from Miguel and Pharrell and is streaming exclusively through Tidal


Beyoncé Partners With Google.org To Grant Four More Scholarships To HBCU Students

Beyoncé’s BeyGood initiative announces a partnership with Google.org, the charitable arm of Google, to grant four more scholarships to HBCU students. The scholarships are coming from her Homecoming Scholars Awards Program. Beyoncé has also challenged other businesses to join Google.org’s investment in education. 

Google.org matched Beyoncé’s $100,000 grant which will enable four more additional HBCUs to $25,000 scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year. Texas Southern University located in Beyoncé’s Houston hometown, Fisk University in Nashville, Tennesse, the alma mater of her father, Matthew Knowles, Grambling State University in Grambling, Louisiana and Morehouse, College in Atlanta, Georgia are the four schools chosen for the scholarships. Historically Black colleges and universities are educational establishments created before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to primarily serve the African-American community. The majority of white institutions of higher-learning did not permit African-Americans to enroll during segregation. 


Beyonce’s Coachella Performance

Beyonce made history last night as the first Black woman to headline Coachella. Her two and a half hour set included a tribute to HBCU’s marching bands, appearances from Jay-Z, Solange, a couple modern dancing and a new reunion with Destiny’s Child. Her blistering performance has many calling the festival Beychella. The whole night that required 11-hour rehearsals is just the beginning of her tour schedule because she and Jay-Z will hit the road with On The Run II this summer.

Jay-Z: Family Feud Official Video Feat. Beyonce

Jay-Z’s video for “Family Feud” is another short film with a cast of stars. Beyonce, Blue Ivy, Michael B Jordan, Thandie Newton, Rashida Jones and more are in the video directed by Ava DuVernay and scored by Flying Lotus. Catholic League president Mike Donohue released a statement with his criticism of the clip. Jay-Z confesses to cheating, Beyonce appears as a spiritual official and a council of women discuss the future of America. It all takes place in a church and a murder is the catalyst for the ultimate storyline.
