Die With You

Album: Single Release Only (2015)
Charted: 62
  • This ballad first appeared on April 4, 2015 on Tidal, the streaming service owned by Beyoncé's husband Jay Z. Its unveiling coincided with the seventh anniversary of the couple's marriage.
  • The song serves as an ode to Beyoncé's love for Jay Z:

    Darling, I wake up just to sleep with you
    I open my eyes so I can see with you
    And I live so I can die with you


    The video shows Bey playing the piano and singing about her husband. At the end of the clip, she yells, "Yeah, thank you!," to the camera man, who is revealed to be Hova himself.
  • Beyoncé shared a new video for the track two years later on her ninth wedding anniversary. The visual is made up of clips from her life with Jay-Z, including images from the couple's marriage in 2008. It is accompanied by a new studio recording of the song.
