    Sonically speaking, EVERYTHING IS LOVE benefits from the sophisticated palates of two superstars and integrates reggae, soul, R&B and boom bap throughout but in a way that’s entirely seamless. Trustworthy studio gurus including Pharrell, Vinylz, !llmind and Mike Dean all pitch in for instrumentals that are both opulent and demure in their presentation.

    Both artists’ high standards guarantee that the songs are musically and melodically on point.

    It’s a testament to how a complicated love survived through self-reflection, compromise, and ruthless honesty.

    With their new album as the Carters, Jay-Z (born Shawn Carter) and Beyoncé are once again a united force, celebrating their success on every front: artistic, financial, marital, erotic, historic. ... This is more familiar, less vulnerable and less exploratory territory than the zones where Beyoncé and Jay-Z ventured on “Lemonade” and “4:44.”

    On Everything Is Love the two flex their muscles like it’s an Olympic sport. ... The inside references and the happy proximity to current rap also work in service of a larger point, which is thinking about black achievement in the context of a cultural and political system designed to hinder it. ... Mainstream art makes too little room for stories like that, especially when the grown-ups in question are people of color. But the Carters won’t be denied on Everything Is Love. For them, this hard-won encore is also a beginning.

    This isn’t an album of ‘Crazy In Love’ or ‘Drunk In Love’ successors. It’s an album of love, and all the forms it can take in and outside of you.

    Everything about Everything is Love feels superficial, from the artists’ constant pronouncement of their love for each other to their engagement with topics like fashion, art, watches (this gets its own category), social issues, how great their friends are, sports, and, indeed, their own lives. The most boring aspect of the album is its centerpiece: the couple’s obsession with their wealth.

Esse álbum é a confirmação da qualidade e genialidade de dois artistas incríveis consolidando uma era que vem desde a OTR e os seus respectivos álbuns. Agora, na segunda turnê em conjuntos, podemos ver a mensagem de luta, empoderamento da arte negra na musica em todos os aspectos que eles queriam passar. Expand
