Jay-Z feat Beyonce Knowles : 03 Bonnie & Clyde

...the fact that he's now doing a turn with the missus should come as no surprise...

If his 'Blueprint' album was an exclusive party, Jay-Z 's 'Blueprint 2' was more of a free-for-all.



On it, he's to be found duetting with rockers, rappers, producers, religious leaders, medieval explorers, etc, so the fact that he's now doing a turn with the missus should come as no surprise. Here Jigga and Beyoncé spin a tale of domestic bliss - it's not all Lexus and sipping Cris, the couple seem to be saying, as here we find them both watching 'Home Front In The Garden' in their jogging bottoms. A similarly relaxed production makes for a behind-the-diamante-net-curtains classic, a bit like if 'The Royle Family' had been set in a particularly bling penthouse in Manhattan.
