Jay Z and Beyonce have begun recording a joint album according to DJ Skee.
Skee announced the news on his recently-launched Dash Radio and said he’s confirmed the information with more than one source.
“The biggest couple in music, maybe entertainment, maybe the world, they’re working on an album together,” he said. “You know who I’m talking about, Jay Z and Beyonce. I have confirmed and talked with a couple sources. Now we all know what Jay Z did Samsung last year. We all know how Beyonce came out of nowhere. But this secret would top all of them, even that new U2 album.”
The news comes on the heels of their final On The Run Tour show in Paris on Saturday (September 13). The North American leg of the tour alone grossed over $100 million according to Billboard. In August Billboard estimated that the couple’s per show pay guarantee was as high as $4 million “from an average attendance of nearly 45,000 per show.” The North American tour also boasted a collective attendance of 850,000 over 19 shows.
The tour’s final two performances in Paris were filmed and will air as a part of an HBO concert special scheduled to premier this Saturday (September 20). Yesterday, Jay Z and Beyonce released the first of a three-part trailer for the special called “Bang Bang.”
Nicki Minaj travelled to Paris on Friday night (September 12) to tape a performance of the “Flawless” remix alongside Beyonce.
