Fortunately for them, the feeling didn’t have to last too long after the Carter family power pair granted their joint album, The Carters, to both of TIDAL’s major competing music-streaming services three days after its release. The nine-track compilation hit fans by surprise, starting with a clip from the “APESHIT” single’s video that popped up on Bey’s Instagram. Shortly after, the couple announced the album’s arrival not only via social media and the official TIDAL social media accounts, but while onstage for their On The Run 2 tour, a new twist to their fixation for surprise releases.
Now, Beyhivers and Hov fans from all over the music-streaming world can celebrate the dangerously-anticipated project that they’ve been begging for from the Carters for years. They’ve hit a few bumps on the search for official The Carters album, however, but thanks to the internet’s trusted Twitterverse, we think they’ve figured it out by now.
See their hilarious reactions to the album’s Spotify and Apple Music surprise landing below.
