Who runs the world? Well, Beyoncé mostly, but in one of the most anticipated joint tours, like, ever, Queen Bey will be joined by her hubby Jay-Z for the On the Run II Tour.

A follow-up to the celebrity couple's 2014 tour — which excluded a Motor City stop — this tour follows a publicly tumultuous two years for pop culture’s royal family. To recap: Bey aired relationship grievances surrounding Jay-Z’s infidelity on her acclaimed 2016 album, Lemonade, and Jay responded with his tail between his legs on last year’s 4:44. The verdict? Well, they’re still “Crazy in Love” — and you know what, we are here for it. DJ "I don't eat pussy" Khaled and Chloe x Hallie are also on the bill.



Beyonce and Jay-Z will perform on Monday, Aug. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Ford Field;  2000 Brush St., Detroit; 313-262-2000; fordfield.com; Tickets are $49.50+.
