Every time Beyoncé does something big, it has everyone—fans and celebrities alike—shook. That’s not excluding her unexpected album release with husband Jay-Z this past weekend.
The Carters dropped Everything Is Love, a nine-song collection, this past Saturday during their On The Run II tour. They also released the album’s first visual “Apeshit.” The new album the duo’s first full-length record together after years of marriage, parenthood, music collaborations and shared concerts. Everything Is Love is meant to serve as a happy ending to the sequence of albums that began with Beyoncé’s prodigious Lemonade in 2016 and Jay-Z’s 4:44 in 2017.
The new album drop was so sudden and so surprising, it became a “drop everything and listen” kind of situation—even for celebrities, showcasing how even though they’re famous, they’re just as big of Beyoncé fans as us. Here’s how some celebrities reacted to Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Everything Is Love on social media.
Frontman and drummer for The Roots Questlove gives us his quick take on the surprise LP noting how the Carters allow their music to do all the talking.
Not commenting on #EverythingIsLove w hyperbolic tawkthis early in but I already know I dig it enough to listen again and will get spins in my sets. Just based on letting the music do the talking. No antics no bs. Just *BOOM*

Just when you thought Beyoncé couldn’t top her Lemonade music videos, she and Jay-Z shoot their video for “Apeshit” in the iconic Lourve museum in Paris. Writer Roxane Gay was just as stunned by the visuals as any of us.
The Apeshit video is interesting. Jay is going through something with hair but they shot in the Louvre!!! Damn. Just damn.

This album has been a long time coming for the Carters and, like most of us, Ty Dolla $ign was feeling very thankful for the dream collaboration.

Actor Colton Haynes reminded us that when Beyoncé drops a surprise album, you can’t forget to keep your friends in the loop—even if they’re sleeping.
… @hollandroden & her mom are taking a nap so I kindly walked by their room & whispered "Beyoncé & Jay Z just dropped a new joint album" , closed their door gently, & retreated to my bed to begin my anointing.

Chicago Fire star Monica Raymund couldn’t contain her excitement for the new LP, shouting at her Twitter follows that she will return once she’s memorized every song (same Monica).

My biggest takeaway from listening to this album 3 times in a row now is that……. Beyonce is clearly Jay-Z’s hero and it fills me with joy. He lives for her. Also….I’ve been mispronouncing Rumi’s name this whole time. My bad lil baby.
