We all know that everything Beyoncé and Jay-Z touch turns to gold: world tours, record sales, nightclubs, and the list goes on. But when the two combine, it makes for pure musical magic. The parents came together for a track on Jay-Z's new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, called "On the Run (Part II)," which has a slower beat, but boasts sweet lyrics about how Beyoncé is the perfect woman — as if we didn't know that already. To top it all off, Jay-Z's rapping is interspersed with a smooth-sounding crooning Queen B. Needless to say, we approve.
