Beyonce and JAY-Z’s surprise joint album Everything Is Love is no longer a Tidal exclusive, but you still need access to Hova’s streaming service to get the full The Carters experience this week — the power couple to end all power couples released a non-album collaborative track called “SALUD!” exclusively to Tidal not long after the album dropped.
The lyrics find Shawn Carter biting back at President Trump, who went after JAY-Z following the rapper’s Jan. 2018 appearance on CNN’s Van Jones Show, where JAY criticized Trump’s comments about “shithole” countries.
“Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!” the caps lock-happy president tweeted on Jan. 28.
“SALUD!” features the following lyrics: “Your president tweeting about Hov like he knows us /My road to the top was to take what you owe us / I give a fuck what that man find vulgar.”
As of Monday (June 18) morning, “SALUD!” has not joined Everything Is Love on Apple Music or Spotify.
