From early collaborations like “’03 Bonnie & Clyde” and “Loopy in Love” to later ventures like their On The Run excursions and joint album Everything is Love, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have cemented themselves as certainly one of music’s strongest couples. First assembly within the late ’90s, the pair turned shut collaborators all through the 2000s and confirmed their relationship in 2004. 4 years later, Beyoncé and Jay-Z bought married in an intimate New York Metropolis ceremony, opting to get matching “IV” tattoos as a substitute of rings. The number holds significance for the couple as Beyoncé’s birthday is September 4, Jay-Z’s December 4, and their marriage ceremony was on April 4. As the Carters lay low with their kids Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir Carter in quarantine, L’OFFICIEL celebrates Jay-Z’s 51st birthday with the couple’s sweetest throwback moments.
