Then came ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ one of the biggest hit and a classic music video that was the first time when Jay Z and Beyonce appear side-by-side ‘duet’ in 2002.
In 2003, they both appeared in Beyonce classic hit ‘Crazy in Love’ as the music started to heat so does the rumor of them dating. The same year Corey did an interview in which interviewer ask him ‘Are you in a relationship with Beyonce’ clearly he denied he said, ‘She is beautiful, who wouldn’t wish she was their Girlfriend?’ he added ‘Maybe one day.’
Soon after the interview, the duo kept getting caught spending time together but still denies every dating rumor. In 2004, they made it clear that they are indeed in a relationship; both of them attended the MTV Video Music Award as a ‘couple.’
In 2006, Beyonce album ‘B’day’ dropped which two including singles featured Jay Z, and comes the year 2008, when they got married, the marriage was a small ceremony. They did not even buy engagement, in the name of engagement ring they both a tattoo ‘IV’ on their finger.
The wedding ceremony was private so no one ever saw the wedding photos until their collaborative tour ‘On the run’ when they showed the wedding album.
In 2008, Beyonce came up front to tell the story, in an interview, she told, ‘What they have is real, and that it is not about the interviews or getting the right photos, this is real.’ She added that an engagement ring is not important to her, people give it too much importance, it is a material, and it just looks silly to her.’
The Couple were having the perfect married life and were happy when they received the news about the new family member, ‘Beyonce was pregnant.’
She was happy when she heard the little heartbeat, ‘the best music she ever heard’ she started picturing what her baby will look like and started shopping. She went every month for the checkup and at one time when she did, ‘There was no heartbeat.’
The hardest thing she has to go through was at that time when she had a miscarriage, (2010). We all know how devastated she was back then, that is why we were all happy when she announced after performing ‘Love on Top’ at VMAs that she is pregnant again, Jay stands right next to her cheering for her.
The announcement has broken the Guinness World Record for ‘Most tweets per second recorded for a single event’ (8,868/second). In 2012 born ‘Blue Ivy Carter’ Shawn named her daughter after his series album ‘Blueprint’, later comes the news of twins (February 2016) ‘God Bless us All.’

According to them, ‘They have gone through it peacefully as a united family; both (Jay Z and Solange) sought out things and apologies to each other.
Then came ‘Lemonade’ (an album about rage, revenge, and betrayal) the singles from the album, ‘Sorry’, ‘Hold up’, ‘Love drought’, were all hints that world has seen that Carter has been unfaithful to Beyonce.
It has been confirmed by himself that he has ‘been unfaithful to her’, his album ‘4:44’ song ‘Family Feud’ appeared as to be an apology for his doing. The rumor has it that the woman he has been cheating with Beyonce on was ‘Rachel Roy.’
Carter opens up about how hard he has to try to save the marriage. Firstly, he said that most man does not have any emotional cues, and he wants to change that. ‘I want to have an emotional tool that it too takes to keep my family Together.’
Many thought that this incident will be the end of their married life, soon they be ought to get a divorce, but that is not the case when you are ‘soul mate.’ Shawn has said, ‘I have a beautiful wife who is understanding and knew that I’m not the worst of what I have done.’
