Beyonce Knowles is one of the hottest names in R&B. Her boyfriend Jay-Z is one of the biggest names in hip-hop. Together, they make up one of the most popular duos on the music scene. The first song they recorded together, called “Bonnie & Clyde,” was a huge hit. The follow up, “Crazy in Love,” is even bigger.
Read on to learn more about Beyonce, Jay-Z, and the crazy love they share.


1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

The beautiful and talented Beyonce Knowles is part of the well known trio Destiny’s Child. She’s also has her own solo album and starred in the movie Austin Powers: Goldmember. She seems to have everything going for her. In addition to all her own success, she also has an extremely successful boyfriend.
Beyonce has been dating rapper Jay-Z for several months. Jay-Z is one of the wealthiest, most skilled and most popular rappers in the world. He has created a few of the most classic rap albums in history.
Beyonce and Jay-Z are a great couple, and they make great music together. “Crazy in Love” is a perfect example. Check out some of the lyrics:
I look and stare so deep in your eyes,
I touch on you more and more every time,
When you leave I’m begging you not to go,
Call your name two or three times in a row,
Such a funny thing for me to try to explain,
How I’m feeling and my pride is the one to blame.
‘Cause I know I don’t understand,
Just how your love can do what no one else can.

I’ve always been a Jay-Z fan. He’s got a great voice and great flow. My favorite songs of his have always been those that feature a female singer with a beautiful voice. His songs with Beyonce are right up there with his other hits, like “Can I Get a…” and “Big Pimpin’.”
If you’re into hip-hop and R&B, or if you just like pop music, you should definitely check out Beyonce and Jay-Z. Beyonce’s new album is good from top to bottom, and pretty much all of Jay-Z’s albums are worth having.
Rock on,
