Black Effect

Album: Everything Is Love (2018)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • Here, Jay-Z and Beyoncé rap fiery rhymes about their love of black culture.

    Got slowed down by the weight of my necklaces
    Parked the Lexus in the projects, bitch I'm reckless
    Extra magazine hopped on a jet with my Ebony chick
    Blacker than the Essence fest

    The song is an unapologetic anthem in which the power couple proclaim themselves symbols of black wealth.
  • Miami producers Cool and Dre supplied the instrumentation for the track. They also supplied the beats for the Everything Is Love cuts "Summer" and "713" as well as the single "Salud!"
  • Immediately after announcing their On the Run II tour in March 2018, Beyoncé and Jay-Z spent time in Kingston, Jamaica to shoot footage for a film that plays during their joint trek. This song opens with a clip from the movie where they spoke to some Jamaican people.
