Everything is love when you’re a Grammy winner!

Beyoncé and JAY-Z took home the best urban contemporary album honor at Sunday’s 2019 Grammy Awards for their joint effort, Everything Is Love. They beat out Beyoncé’s protégées Chloe x Halle (The Kids Are Alright), Chris Dave and the Drumhedz (Chris Dave and the Drumhedz), Miguel (War & Leisure) and Meshell Ndegeocello (Ventriloquism).

The couple surprise-dropped Everything Is Love as The Carters in June after years of speculation that they were working on an album together. The release came at the end of Jay and Bey’s London show on their On the Run Tour II, when they casually flashed, “Album Out Now.” on the stage’s giant screen.
