Mazel tov! Hot off the release of their surprise joint album Everything Is Love, The Carters put up a glass on their bonus track “Salud!”
The celebratory song, a TIDAL exclusive, was produced by Cool & Dre, and also features vocals from Dre.
Bey gets the party started on her rap-sung verse. “Put it on ice / Celebrate that we made it / I put it on Christ,” she sings. “Lord knows it takes hella patience when your name is a verb and these comments absurd / And they swear they know you better than you know yourself.”
Hov boasts about his all-glass house, wife with a “model walk,” and homes in Montauk, Tribeca, and New Orleans. He also addresses Donald Trump. “Your president’s tweeting about Hov like he know us / My road to the top was to take what you owed us / I give a fuck what that man find vulgar / Just look in my eyes when you toast us.”
In addition to “Salud!,” Cool & Dre produced “Summer,” “713,” and “Black Effect.” Everything Is Love also features contributions from Quavo, Offset, Pharrell, Ty Dolla $ign, NAV, Dave Sitek, and Boi-1da.
