Time flies, doesn’t it?
It might seem just yesterday that we first saw Jay-Z and Beyonce appear together as a couple, side-by-side, ride or die.
However, it wasn’t yesterday . The two started dating more than 12 years ago and yesterday, April 4, marked the five year wedding anniversary of hip-hop’s most royal couple.
For more than a decade we’ve loved and obsessed over Jay, Beyonce and, most recently, Blue Ivy, but it didn’t always seem like hip-pop’s most royal familia loved us back. For years, the couple was almost irrationally secretive about their relationship.
They denied they were dating for years and when they couldn’t deny it anymore, they performed verbal magic to get out of answering any kind of questions about each other.
The ice has been thawing, however.
Over the last couple of years, and especially after the birth of their daughter, Jay and Bey have both become more revealing about their relationship.
In fact, they have given us enough info where we can kinda figure out how their story unraveled.
So, with the help of Bey and Jay themselves, here’s the beautiful love story of Beyonce and Jay-Z.
