Beyonce and Jay-Z are the ultimate power couple in the music business. In a society where the bond of marriage has less value than a relationship, this power couple inspires us and restores our faith in the holy matrimony. To make things even more surprising, they have been together for 9 years and what better way to celebrate the anniversary than release a heart-felt ballad. “Die With You” was released as a single on TIDAL.
“Die With You” wasn’t just an audio track, as it accompanied a video showing footage of the married life between Beyonce and Jay-Z and it’s just goals. The video can be streamed on TIDAL.
Queen Bey also created a romantic playlist of 63 tracks running over 4 hours to celebrate the anniversary. She named it “IV Ever Ever.” The tracklist includes some of the best songs by SAde, Robin Thicke, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Prince, Coldplay, Aretha Franklin and more legends.
“Die With You” Lyrics
I don’t have a reason to cry, and I have every reason to smile.
And I don’t have a reason to lie, when you’re already reading my mind.
And I don’t have a reason to be, if I can’t be with you.
Beyonce confesses her eternal love for Jay-Z right at the start of the ballad. She explains the chemistry they have in their personal lives, that they understand each other so well.
And I don’t need air in my lungs, if I can’t sing your song.
No I don’t need hands, if I don’t get to keep you warm.
And I don’t really need myself, if I don’t need you.
This is just beautiful lyrical work. It’s simple and yet it gets the message through.
‘Cause darling I wake up just to sleep with you,
I open my eyes so I can see with you,
and I live so I can die with you.
Beyonce says she would just wake up to sleep with him, and he is the reason that keeps her running-so that they could grow old together and die together.
Beyonce has confessed her love for him in a song and maybe Jay-Z will do the same. Maybe, we will see a collaboration. For now, enjoy this romantic ballad “Die With You” and let us know what you think about the song and their relationship.
