There is no more dominant couple in music—let alone pop culture—than Jay Z and Beyonce. The two separately have topped the charts with hit after hit and surprise album after surprise album, but together they make magic. While they never have truly recorded a duet, the two have collaborated a number of times—lending backing vocals and 16 bars to each other’s songs.

There is even talk of an epic July 4th performance in the pair’s home base, NYC!

We admit -songwriting is pretty hard, and sometimes the most part can be penning the lyrics. Sure, you can bust out a rhyming dictionary to come up with some words that scan.
