Who better to drop a new song exclusively on Jay Z‘s new music streaming service than Jay Z’s wife?
Beyonce celebrated the couple’s seventh wedding anniversary over the weekend by debuting her new single, “Die With You,” via Jay Z’s Tidal service. A video for the song, with a cameo appearance by Jay Z at the end, also surfaced briefly on Saturday (April 4) but was removed shortly thereafter.
In the song’s refrain, Beyonce sings that, “I live so I can die with you” — presumably, of course, about Mr. Carter.
Beyonce isn’t the only one releasing exclusive content via Tidal; Rihanna also used the service to premiere her new song, “American Oxygen,” while Nicki Minaj has promised to release some surprises of her own in the near future.
