Beyonce and Jay-Z step out for lowkey NYC dinner with pals after they TIE for most Grammy nods ever

Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z were spotted emerging from a casual dinner with pals in New York City this week.

The 41-year-old pop diva put a swanky spin on casual chic, teaming a hoodie and jeans with a pair of bedazzled stilettos.

Sharpening her screen siren features with makeup, she let her luxuriously long blonde hairdo cascade out from under her hood.

In putting the album together, she enlisted the help of such artists as Drake, Pharrell Williams, The-Dream, Skrillex – and none other than her own husband.

As a result, both Bey and Jay earned Grammy nominations for the same album, bringing up them up to their current all-time total of 88 apiece.

Beyonce previously remarked that she hopes the album will be a rejuvenating form of escape for people after the turbulence of 2020.

‘With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again,’ she dished last year.

‘I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible,’ she said in last year’s September Icon issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

‘I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half. Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies,’ she noted.

‘Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio. After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!’ she assured her public. 

Renaissance was her first solo studio album since her groundbreaking visual album Lemonade from 2016, in which she famously confronted the questions around her marriage to Jay-Z and his fidelity.

Since Lemonade, she has put out a collaborative album with Jay-Z, a live album and a pair of soundtrack-related companion pieces for Disney’s photorealistic remake of The Lion King, in which she voiced the love interest Nala.

Beyonce and Jay-Z have been married since 2008 and have welcomed three children into the world – Blue Ivy, 10, and twins Sir and Rumi, five.
