Beyonce and Jay Z are one of the music industry’s most enduring couples. Most of us don’t even remember when they got together, but what we do know is that they have collaborated on a number of musical projects together, including songs and even tours, and they have been doing it consistently for years. In recent years, these two have had their fair share of ups and downs, but they have managed to stick it out. Even though these two are ridiculously private about their relationship, we have some things you didn’t know about their romance:
9. When Jay Met Bey
Beyonce and Jay Z have always run in the same circles. In 2000, she was featured on his protégé Amil’s track “I Got That.” The following year, they both appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair’s music issue. Years later, Jay Z claimed that it was around this time that they were trying to date each other and Beyonce also later confirmed this when she said that she and Jay met when she was 18 and began dating when she was 19. It was shortly after this that she appeared in his song and video for “Bonnie & Clyde” and that’s when rumors began circulating that the two were dating. The couple, however, refused to acknowledge their relationship until 2004 when they made their red carpet debut at the MTV Video Music Awards.
