Listen to entire album of JayZ and Beyonce Everything Is Love

Jay-Z and Beyonce, faithful to a family tradition, have released a new album without the slightest notice.

The couple released a joint album that alludes to the displeasure of the rapper for this year’s Grammy and includes a greeting from his daughter Blue Ivy to his brothers.

The nine-track album “Everything Is Love” appeared on Saturday at the live music service Tidal, of which Jay-Z is one of the owners.

The subjects in which Beyonce makes rap are more numerous than in previous albums.

In a song that includes a coarse term in the title, Jay-Z whips the Grammy. He arrived at the awards ceremony in February with the highest number of nominations and left empty-handed.

The rapper says he turned down the Super Bowl halftime show because the NFL, the football league, needs him more than he needs them.

Blue Ivy finishes the song “BOSS” with a greeting to Rumi and Sir, his brothers of one year.

In 2013, Beyonce released her self-titled album “Beyonce” without warning.

The surprise effect has now become their hallmark. Four years after their first joint tour, Beyoncé and Jay-Z were performing together again this Saturday, June 16, on the stage of the London Stadium.
But the two American artists waited until the very last seconds of their show to announce on giant screen the release of a new joint album. The news was immediately taken back on the social networks by the fans present on the spot.

A few seconds later appear in the stadium the first images of a clip broadcast on the Internet in stride. The song, titled Apeshit, is the first single from a nine-song album called Everything Is Love , only available on Tidal, the online music platform launched in 2015 by Jay-Z.

Singer Beyoncé, 36, and mother of three children with Jay-Z, immediately promoted the album to her Instagram account, followed by 115 million subscribers.

An impressive clip shot in the Louvre
The clip of Apeshit , second title of this new album, was directed by Ricky Saiz and shot in the biggest secret in the rooms of the Louvre, in Paris. For the occasion, the couple presents itself under its real name – The Carters – and stands in front of the most emblematic works of art of the Parisian museum.

Like this first song, the rest of the album allows the superstar Beyoncé, who has sold nearly 120 million albums in the world, to plunge into the world of rap. Her husband Jay-Z also settles his accounts with the record industry and especially with the Grammy’s – the most important musical award – to which he was widely nominated, but which he left empty handed last February.

The star couple does not have to worry. The former singer of the group Destiny’s Child has a habit of beating all records. His previous solo album, Lemonade , released in 2016, went straight to the top of album sales. Jay-Z, at 48, is one of the most influential rappers and a savvy businessman, with a fortune valued last year by Forbes at $ 810 million.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z will perform in France in the coming weeks, as part of their world tour On the run tour II , which will stage July 14 and 15 at the Stade de France and July 17 in Nice.

Review on Neewer NW-700 Radio Broadcast Condenser Microphone

After almost a year of use, I can finally talk about this professional Neewer NW-700 Radio Broadcast Condenser Microphone, which has on its side the price, very low in relation to the quality of construction and audio it offers.

Buy Broadcast Microphone here

The equipment includes: the microphone; a shock mount; the jack-cannon cable and a windproof hood. Unfortunately, a
tripod is missing, I bought it apart.

The construction quality is excellent: the microphone is built entirely of metal and the assembly is not far behind. Even the shock mount is made with the same care, also made entirely of metal apart from the elastic cords that support the microphone. The jack-cannon cable is well made and the part that connects to the microphone has a locking system, to prevent it from being accidentally disconnected.

Let’s start by saying that this is a Neewer NW-700 Radio Broadcast Condenser Microphone, and therefore needs electricity to work well, so it is advisable to use a phantom power supply or use a self-powered sound card. In case you do not have a power supply system, it will be enough to activate the PC preamplification software.

The audio quality, as I mentioned before, is excellent: the recording returns a warm and faithful voice, provided however to stay close to the side of the microphone (ie near one of the flat parts of the head). I do not know if with the phantom power the range of action increases, but also without, provided you stay close to the microphone, the yield is very good.

To conclude, this Neewer NW-700 Radio Broadcast Condenser Microphone is a godsend for those who want to record vocals cover in a professional way by spending little. Absolutely recommended to those who, like me, record music covers and need a professional microphone without spending too much.

In short, the desire expressed byMax Casacci a few months ago about the idea that the public service should have a channel dedicated to contemporary music, even if in the desires of the producer the channel should have been television.

It will be necessary to understand how the radio channel will be able to compete with the streaming offers, given that the audience of the Italian “indie” (as Mamma Rai wants to call it) did not grow with the radio, but with the possibility of listening to everything on demand, and if this operation will serve the scene to gain public.

Radio2 Indie will start on June 21st , and the first song to be aired will be “Paracetamolo” of Calcutta , taken from his new album “Evergreen” released on May 25th.

And, as the press notes, “artists like Ghali , Iosonouncane , Liberato , Carl Brave , Marie Antoinette , Andrea Laszlo De Simone , Pop X , Sick Tamburo , Verdenaand also many international artists, in a great flow of free music, always new, trendy, all in a single channel, which has no preclusions of styles and sounds, but with a single common denominator: always offer before everything else everything that makes style.

It will also be an opportunity to propose live concerts, deepenings in the sign of music, capable of making radio listeners enter even more “.

The new channel will also be available in the Dab + bouquet of RadioRai, on the Digital Terrestre Tv and on the web and RaiPlayRadio app.

Roberto Sergio comments on the news of Radio Rai: “With these two channels (the other is Rai Radio1 Sport ed) our offer of radio increases and brings the total number to 12.

A rich offer, unthinkable only a few years ago, which positions Rai Radio among the main players in the production of audio content, whether for entertainment, information or culture “.
