Jay Z and Beyonce are set to go into the recording studio to make a top secret album together.
The married couple, whose relationship has been the source of much speculation in recent months, recently finished their ‘On The Run’ tour and have already started working on new material, which they hope to release as a surprise album either later this year or in early 2015.
A source told the New York Post’s Page Six column that they aspire to repeat the success of Beyonce’s last album, which was released in December and was a commercial success, despite the lack of promotion and marketing.
The album, entitled ‘Beyonce’, featured a number of hit singles, including ‘Drunk In Love’ and ‘XO’, while its unusual release strategy has seen it become the focus of a study by the Harvard Business School.
It’s been speculated the new album will be accompanied by a number of music videos and possibly even a movie.
Meanwhile, there have also been suggestions the couple will soon move to Paris, where they finished their ‘On The Run’ tour.
Jay, 44, and his 33-year-old wife have been spending plenty of time in the French capital of late, and the rapper has said it’s special to them both because “we got engaged here and this is where baby Blue was conceived”.
