AceShowbiz - As one of the greatest musicians in our generation, every music that Beyonce Knowles releases has always been loved and greatly praised by a lot of people. Her joint album with husband Jay-Z, "Everything Is Love", is not an exception. The effort is met with widespread critical acclaim and commercial success.
"Everything Is Love" debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart with 123,000 equivalent album units even though it hasn't even been a week since the album was released. Music critic Nicholas Hautman of Us Weekly notes that the pop diva "outshines her husband on much of the record. His verses are a few and far between comparison to hers, but it still somehow feels like a balanced body of work from two of the greatest artists of our time."
Not only their joint album, but their joint tour "On the Run II" also receives positive reviews from music critics. Rachel Aroesti from the Guardian says that the concept of the show reveals the "deathless nature of their love rather than its perfection," giving it four out of five stars. Additionally, it has been predicted that the tour could net between $180 million and $200 million, doubling their first joint tour's gross.
Let's not forget about Beyonce's record-breaking headlining Coachella performance. Her April 14 performance was praised by many, with multiple media outlets describing it as historic. Pitchfork hailed her performance as "instantly legendary," while NBC dubbed it "an unprecedented celebration of black cultural influence in America."
The performance became the most-tweeted about performance of weekend one in addition to the most-watched live Coachella performance and the most-watched live performance on YouTube of all time with 43 million views. According to Nielsen, her headlining performance also resulted in a 228% lift in digital song sales for her solo tracks.
