Producer duo Cool & Dre won’t forget the answer to the question on everybody’s minds this weekend anytime soon. After all, they were right alongside the Carters on tour in London, having literally put finishing touches on Everything Is Love just a few hours before it arrived with no warning on Saturday evening (June 17).

But just because the album’s release came down to the wire doesn’t mean its creation was hasty: Marcello “Cool” Valenzo and Andre “Dre” Lyon describe the work ethic of hip-hop’s perfectionist power couple as nothing short of fastidious — no drum sound, sample or melody was spared their scrutiny. Below, Cool & Dre take Billboard behind the scenes of their Paris stadium sessions, Beyoncé’s hands-on role in the writing process and just how much music they have left in the vault.

The “Tidal Exclusive” album is now available everywhere, and well….It’s taken over the charts. It is #1 in over 70 countries, and Apeshit is also jumping up the singles chart.

“Album Out Now”. Three words that changed the year! As Beyonce and Jay Z finished their second London date on the On The Run II tour, those three words flashed across the screen. The album that has been discussed for years is finally here, and it’s titled “Everything Is Love”. The album has 9 tracks, and lasts 38:17 minutes.

The Carters are officially on the run, and they have finished their first stop! The show was a success, and the fans are tweeting like crazy about how much they loved the show. Check out photos and videos (on our instagram) from the show and the full setlist.

The RIAA has officially certified Formation and Hold Up Platinum in the United States. Both songs are from her latest studio album, Lemonade.

The ladies of Destinys Child were spotted out and about in Los Angeles last night, at the Peter Dundas store opening.

Combined, the album and song catalog of both Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child saw an 83 percent increase in sales in the week ending April 19, as the two acts combined sold 8,000 albums (up 102 percent from 4,000 a week earlier) and 37,000 digital tracks (up 79 percent from 21,000).

The biggest-selling album between the two acts was Beyoncé’s 2016 set Lemonade, which re-enters the April 28-dated Top Album Sales chart at No. 24 with 5,000 sold (up 142 percent) — its best sales frame since the week ending Dec. 28, 2017.
