Jay Z has proven to be a star collaborator in general: He’s released albums with Linkin Park, R. Kelly, and Kanye West and joined forces with Justin Timberlake for a tour and multiple songs. It only makes sense that his next album-length partnership would be one with his award-winning, wildly popular wife.
