Rumor: Beyonce + Jay Z to Open 2014 Grammys With ‘Drunk in Love’
UPDATE: Check out Beyonce + Jay Z's Grammy performance here!
Beyonce and Jay Z will collaborate onstage at the 2014 Grammy Awards tomorrow night (Jan. 26), and now we know what hip-hop's power couple will perform! Well, maybe.
Hits Daily Double reports that Hov and Bey will team up for 'Drunk in Love.' And like Beyonce closed 2013 with a bang with her surprise self-titled album release, Jigga Man and Queen Bey will kick off the Grammys with their explosive, sexually charged banger off of 'Beyonce.'
The Academy has yet to confirm reports. And knowing how sneaky Jay Z and Beyonce can be, we wouldn't be surprised if they changed plans at the last minute now that the news is out! But 'Drunk in Love' is a pretty solid bet: the couple have been spotted out and about singing and dancing to it since the song and album first dropped.
The only thing that may stop the pair from performing the track? The controversial lyrics. In Hova's verse, he references 'What's Love Go to Do With It,' the biopic of Tina Turner and her abusive relationship with Ike Turner, rapping, "Eat the cake / Anna Mae." However, that should be a quick fix for the self-described genius that is Jay.
