The Carters (stylized in all caps) are an American musical duo composed of married musicians Beyoncé and Jay-Z. They released their first album as The Carters, Everything Is Love, on June 16, 2018. The album debuted at #2 behind 5SOS. Before being formally billed on the album, the duo performed together on two world tours, On the Run Tour (2014) and OTR II (2018), and released a number of collaborations.

The couple first collaborated in 2002, under six years before their marriage, with "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" from Jay-Z's The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse. They had their first number one single the next year with "Crazy in Love" from Beyoncé's debut solo album Dangerously in Love.

History[edit]

On June 16, 2018, during a concert in London as part of their On the Run II Tour, The Carters premiered the music video for "Apeshit". Following the conclusion of the video, the words "ALBUM OUT NOW" appeared on the screen. Everything Is Love was released exclusively on Tidal for streaming and digital download, before being made available across all other platforms.[citation needed]
