The long-rumoured Beyonce and Jay Z album could finally be on its way. The Drunk In Love couple are said to have finished recording the anticipated record during a trip to Hawaii in June and have set a release date.

Beyonce fan Twitter account Ultimate BeyHive claim to have insider knowledge on the collaborative project, which will be the first time Beyonce, 34, and Jay Z, 46, have recorded a full album together. The fan page tweeted: “They put the finishing touches on the album in Hawaii.”

It appears the album will be released exclusively through Jay Z’s music streaming service Tidal, as the account later tweeted: “I hope you all have tidal,” along with a bee emoji and blue heart in reference to Beyonce’s nickname and the couple’s favourite colour.

Ultimate BeyHive also claim to have heard the album and hint that Jay Z will address the cheating rumours sparked by lyrics on Beyonce’s Lemonade album. The account promised their 66,000 followers: “Don’t think one single hive member will hate on Jay after this one… Jay is making me ugly cry.”

A release date has reportedly been scheduled by the couple’s team but the fan account refuse to divulge the details, only revealing: “Dates are confirmed. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it, this is the best thing they’ve ever done. We can definitely confirm a date has been planned. Due to the planned roll out we aren’t giving any specific date. But you will be prepared!”

However, there appears to be conflicting reports on the release date with Ultimate BeyHive suggesting it will be available in 2016 and another popular fan account The BeyHive Team tweeting: “We’d like to confirm that it will be MONTHS before a Beyoncé and Jay Z joint album. Not even a confirmed release for 2016. Be back soon!”
