Is Beyoncé’s Song ‘Crazy In Love’ About Jay-Z?

 


On May 14, 2003, Beyoncé released her song “Crazy In Love,” featuring rapper Jay-Z, into the world. Though this was her first lead single as a solo artist, the track did not disappoint in the slightest as it went on to top the global music charts. While “Crazy In Love” solidified Beyoncé’s spot in the music industry, it also put her budding relationship with Jay-Z on everyone’s radar. With lyrics describing a romantic relationship, it would be easy to assume that the song is about the rapper, but is it really?

Beyoncé Wins Trademark Battle Over Blue Ivy's Name.


The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) had no time for the efforts of a Massachusetts wedding planner to block Beyoncé in her quest to secure intellectual property rights. In a little-noticed ruling one week ago, Beyoncé won her ongoing trademark battle over her daughter’s name.

For years, Beyoncé has attempted to trademark her daughter’s name, Blue Ivy Carter. She’s filed applications that cover everything from books to pacifiers to shampoo to video games and much more. The problem, though, is that wedding planner Veronica Morales called her business “Blue Ivy Events” – even before Beyoncé’s daughter was born.

The Insanely Lavish Lifestyle Of Beyoncé And Jay-Z


Beyoncé and Jay-Z are the closest thing there is to royalty in the U.S. While they didn't grow up with silver spoons, they've earned unparalleled success in their careers. And now that they're on top of the world, they are living their best lives. Here's a look at this music mogul couple's glamorous life.

Also: Updates on Jay-Z Lifestyle

In order to gain some context on Beyoncé and Jay-Z's super lavish lifestyle, it first helps to understand how much cash they have and how they keep it coming in. So just how much dough are we talking about? According to Forbes, the Carters are worth roughly $1.4 billion dollars as of mid 2019.

Beyoncé herself is only worth a mere $400 million compared to her husband's $1 billion, but that doesn't tell the full story. The Queen's income comes mostly from her album sales and concert earnings, which tend to be larger than her husband's. Conversely, Jay-Z earns his income mostly as a result of his investments, such as his significant ownership over the streaming company Tidal. Obviously, both celebs know their strengths and play to them well. 

Also: More on Beyonce Lifestyle

So now you know what  means when she talks about her great-great grandchildren already being rich, as she did on the track "Boss" from her joint album with Jay, Everything Is Love.

Wendy Williams Talks Beyoncé, Jay Z, And National Anthem


Wendy Williams kicked off her show with “Hot Topics,” which is a segment based on the latest celebrity news and gossip. Of course, there was plenty to say about the Super Bowl. Williams said she liked the halftime show overall and felt that both women did a great job. Ultimately, though, she felt Jennifer Lopez “won” the show. She said Lopez’s more glamorous look and dance moves are what sold her.

Williams condemned Jay Z and Beyoncé for sitting during the National Anthem. It was hard for people not to notice that two of the world’s biggest stars didn’t stand for the National Anthem. When Demi Lovato sang the Star Spangled Banner, most everyone stood up with their hands over their hearts. But the Carters did not.

Jay-Z And Beyonce Had The Best Album In 2018


Jay-Z was the man to recon with when him and Beyonce released there joint album "Everything Is Love." Both Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been nominated for Album of the Year several times on their own.

What Everything Is Love represents, then, is an opportunity — not just for JAY and Beyoncé, the most powerful couple in popular culture, but for the Grammy Awards as an institution.

The make-good angle is clear as day: neither Beyoncé nor JAY-Z has won an album of the year award, despite being two of the most lauded musical artists of this century, and Everything Is Love offers a way to right both wrongs in one fell swoop.

They say it's a marathon, not a sprint. But for Beyoncé and JAY-Z, it was both. Their sprawling On the Run II Tour finished with $253.5 million in ticket sales. The On the Run II tour more than doubled Bey and Jay's previous tour in terms of overall gross and ticket sales.

The hip-hop megastar is now on the same level as four of the biggest names who have ever reached the No. 1 spot on the albums chart. The album's sales increased by 397 percent and moved a total of 94,000 units to earn a No. 1 spot on the charts. Fans have been thirsty for the new release ever since Beyoncé's 2016 album “Lemonade,” which sold more than 2.5 million copies.

How Much Does It Cost Beyonce To Stay In Paris?

 


Beyoncé is one of the most recognizable people on the planet. She’s been in the public eye since she was a teenager building her career and massive wealth. Though the singer lets fans in on to small glimpses of her life through Instagram, Beyoncé is also known for keeping her private life out of the spotlight.


Still, despite her desire for privacy, Beyoncé fans have uncovered some of her favorite vacation spots. She’s been known to live her best life in places like the Dominican Republic, Brazil, and Ibiza. However, Paris will always have a special place in the singer’s heart.


After working more than two decades in the entertainment industry in everything from music to film to business endeavors, Beyoncé has not only made a name for herself; she has also established a massive net worth. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the Black Is King creator is worth some $500 million.

How Beyoncé And Jay-Z Fell In Love


Once upon a time, Jay Z and Beyoncé fell in love. But—when, exactly? At this point, it seems as though music’s preeminent power couple has been together forever, but there were actually several years where they kept the world at large guessing, denying their undying love while likely continuing to date under the rader (or—as under the radar as two famous people can be).

Though there are varying reports as to when exactly they first came face to face, but in 2007 Jay told Charlie Rose he met Bey “10 years ago,” or in 1997; Queen B told Seventeen a year later that “I was 18 when we first met, 19 when we first started dating.” So young! Beyoncé was born September 4, 1981, so that’d mean they met in late 1999 or early 2000. Since women have a better memory than men, we’d bet on Bey. (Jay was born December 4, 1969, which means he was about 30.)

The Lifestyle Jay-Z And Beyonce Kids Live


It shouldn’t surprise any of us that the lives of Beyonce and Jay-Z are super lavish. They’re self-made billionaires who entertain the whole world! The couple collectively has a worth of over a billion dollars and they’re making money as we speak. Right now, they just made more money. 

Can you believe that? But does it surprise you to know that their kids, Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir live lives SO luxurious that we’re all seriously jealous? Yeah, these kids have got it made. 

They’re probably set for literally the rest of their lives thanks to their hard-working parents. Exclusive schools, sure. Fancy nurseries? Obviously! But it goes so much farther than that. They get to live in the many, MANY, homes that Beyonce and Jay-Z own all over the country, they get to take lavish vacations, and they don’t lift a finger.

What Would You Do If You Met Jay-Z?


How do you think it would feel or how would you act if you met one of the biggest and richest hip-hop stars in our generation Jay-Z?

We all know him as Jay-Z or Hova, but his real name is Shawn Corey Carter. Did you know? Jay-Z is the third best-selling rap artist of all time, after Eminem and Tupac with over 28m sales worldwide. Jay Z is one of the most well-known and highly-regarded rappers in the industry.

He’s also an extremely successful investor and businessman who’s a co-owner of the New York 40/40 Club, the clothing line Rocawear and is the former president of Def Jam Recordings, co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records and founder of Roc Nation. On top of all this, he’s also a certified NBA and MLB sports agent.

Jay-Z Returns To Spotify Music


Rap icon Jay-Z brought his music discography back to the world’s largest streaming platform Spotify, leaving Tidal subscribers scratching their heads. The service he bought for $56 million in 2014 has struggled to gain any real market share against major players like Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music.

Is it genius marketing for the Tidal owner, or does this show he’s throwing in the streaming wars towel, as his company continues to struggle with growth?

The Breakdown You Need to Know: Even with Tidal’s exclusive music offerings and a $200 million investment from Sprint, it still doesn’t seem to be enough to keep the ship afloat, and Jay-Z may be jumping off the boat.

Jay-Z has been a vocal critic of tech companies in regards to the issue of compensating artists, so it’s a bit odd that he’s back in bed with them. Especially, when you consider Tidal markets itself as a “more equitable [business] model for artists” to make money while streaming their music.

In the beginning it was all good at Tidal, with artists like Beyoncé, Kanye West, Madonna and Chris Martin to name a few, who all had an ownership stake in the company. Each of the artists reportedly were given 3% equity in the platform, with Jay-Z holding the remaining stake.

The onset of streaming has poured new life into the music industry, with revenue hitting $5.4 billion earlier this year, $4.3 billion just from streaming services. Apple Music and Spotify boasts 113 million and 60 million subscribers respectively, which is massively hard for Tidal’s 2016 self-reported 3 million subscribers to compete with.

Tidal’s offering is the most expensive option on the market at $20 per month. Amazon Music and Apple Music come in at $14.99 and $9.99 respectively, just another reason subscribers have been few and far between for Jay-Z’s company. They have tried other ways to grow subscribers by heavily discounting its subscription service for first responders. So if you consider yourself to be a hero, the company was offering a 40% discount for its Premium and Hi-Fi plans.

Jay-Z seems to be taking a “if you can’t beat them, join them” approach to music streaming and social advocacy. Let’s not forget he has now partnered with the NFL on it’s social justice mission, while also curating their halftime show.

Which Couple is Richer? Kim Kardashian and Kayne West or Jay-Z and Beyonce?

 


Jay Z, who has a net worth of $1 billion, is worth more than Beyoncé, but Kim Kardashian West is the breadwinner in her marriage with Kanye West.


Who's got the hottest album? Who's got the most valuable product line? Who is the biggest celebrity in the world? Who has the biggest TV/Netflix contract? Who sold out more shows? Who has the best house? Who has more houses?


For a long time the answer to that last question has definitively been Jay-Z and Beyonce. For over a decade, Kanye's net worth couldn't hold a candle to Jay's. In 2013, Jay-Z was worth $500 million, while Kanye was worth around $75 million.

Beyoncé Inks Deal With Sony/ATV Music Publishing


Beyoncé and Jay-Z have worked closely for much of their careers with Jon Platt, who took the reins at the Sony Music company as chairman and CEO in 2019. Platt already brought Rihanna over to his new home last fall, after moving to Sony/ATV from Warner/Chappell earlier in the year.

Jay-Z called Platt his “brother” and said he was “the Obama of the music industry” when the publishing exec was the honoree at the annual City of Hope Spirit of Life dinner in October 2018. “This man has worked his way up from a Denver DJ to be the highest-ranking black executive,” he said.
