Cool & Dre Discuss the Process of Working on 'Everything Is Love'

June 22, 2018

The names Cool & Dre ring out across the hip-hop landscape for more reasons than one. If you're feeling nostalgic, their work on the Game's "Hate It or Love It" and Ja Rule's "New York" will get your blood flowing. If you're feeling contemporary, look no further than Fat Joe and Remy Ma's anthemic "All the Way Up," which dominated airwaves and peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100.

They've been locked into the music game for more than a decade—but it still came as a surprise when credits on JAY-Z and Beyoncé's joint album Everything Is Love revealed the veteran production duo produced three out of nine tracks: "Summer," "713," and "Black Effect." They couldn't sound any more different: "Summer," with its deceptively lazy but thoroughly soulful pace, "713," with driving keys just south of in tune but hard enough that it doesn't matter, and "Black Effect," with its comparatively sparse beat and haunting background vocals. The Carters also released a bonus track, "Salud!" which Cool & Dre produced, and Dre laid down vocals for. As its name suggests, it sounds like a toast to victory.

As expected, Cool & Dre are floating on Cloud Nine now that their contributions to Everything Is Love have officially reached our ears. In an interview with Complex, the pair talked about their favorite moments creating with JAY and Bey, how easy it was to keep the collaboration a secret, and their status after producing for two of the most revered artists on the planet.

What have the past 48 hours been like for y’all?

On the Run II Tour in Amsterdam (June 19)

June 20, 2018

Last night Beyonce and Jay-Z performed during the On the Run II Tour at the Amsterdam Arena in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Again, Bey had two new outfits. After the concert, she wrote on Facebook: "Amsterdam, you're always so much fun! Can't wait to see more of your beautiful faces tonight!"



OTR II Tour Architect Reveals New Content Will Be Added To The Show

June 20, 2018

Nobody does a stadium show like Beyoncé. Back in 2016, when she was touring Lemonade, she took with her a 60-foot “monolith” to project mountainous videos at her audience – it was so big that some venues had to reduce the size of the audience in order to fit the stage. This time around, for her second On The Run tour with Jay-Z, the dynamic stage feels lighter – but it provides a number of “oh shit!” moments (not only when the couple end their show by dropping a new album, as they did on Saturday June 16 in London).

The stage is mainly constructed of two catwalks, which Bey and Jay use to perform independently of one another; at the end of the show, a giant bridge connects the two, floating over the audience as it does so. More impressive than this is the backdrop of the stage, which is dominated by two giant video screens (each of which, designer Ric Lipson tells me, is the size of “a London street”). At various points in the show, these screens split open, to reveal a four-storey structure, on which figures dance, play instruments, and sometimes create a silhouetted tableau. It’s reminiscent of the thrum of vibrant energy that Bey brought with her to this year’s Coachella performances, where she chose to perform in front of college-style bleachers packed with 120 dancers and instrumentalists, rather than the screens that usually dominate massive arena pop shows.

The show was brought to life by Stufish, a London-based entertainment architectural firm who also worked on the stage that was used for Beychella (as well as having a storied history producing shows for Lady Gaga, Queen, and U2). Dazed spoke to Stufish architect Ric Lipson about how the stage design reflected Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s narrative of forgiveness and reconciliation, why Beyoncé altered the design to accommodate a huge band, and how the show may change as it keeps travelling.

Cool & Dre Detail the Last-Minute Making of 'Everything Is Love'

June 19, 2018

Where were you when the joint Beyoncé and JAY-Z album dropped?

Producer duo Cool & Dre won't forget the answer to the question on everybody's minds this weekend anytime soon. After all, they were right alongside the Carters on tour in London, having literally put finishing touches on Everything Is Love just a few hours before it arrived with no warning on Saturday evening (June 17).

But just because the album's release came down to the wire doesn't mean its creation was hasty: Marcello "Cool" Valenzo and Andre "Dre" Lyon describe the work ethic of hip-hop's perfectionist power couple as nothing short of fastidious -- no drum sound, sample or melody was spared their scrutiny. Below, Cool & Dre take Billboard behind the scenes of their Paris stadium sessions, Beyoncé's hands-on role in the writing process and just how much music they have left in the vault.

Beyoncé and JAY-Z work in mysterious ways. Were you surprised that the album came out when it did?

Dre: Nah, we knew what was going on. We were in London with them when the album dropped. JAY-Z and Beyonce are Golden State Warriors: they shoot half-court shorts, and it goes in. We spent three weeks in Paris recording, then we went to Cardiff for like a week. We got to London and knocked out two to three tracks 10 days of finishing up the album. An hour and a half before showtime, Bey and Jay were still cutting up vocals. Three hours later it was released to the world. There are no rules when it comes to those two.

Producers Cool & Dre on What It's Like to Make a Beyonce and Jay-Z Album

June 19, 2018

When Beyoncé and Jay-Z's album Everything Is Love appeared suddenly on Tidal on Saturday night, a surprising name stood out on the credits list: veteran duo Cool & Dre co-produced three of the nine songs on the album, along with a bonus track. Cool & Dre were ubiquitous on much of the radio in the mid-2000s – see Ja Rule's "New York" and the Game's "Hate It or Love It," for starters – and enjoyed a recent renaissance as the team behind Fat Joe's "All the Way Up." The pair had never worked on a Jay-Z or Beyoncé album before, though. On Everything Is Love, they're responsible for "Summer," the album's soul-sampling opener; the radio-ready, Dr. Dre-interpolating "713"; and a pair of triumphant cuts that appear near the end of the LP, "Black Effect" and "Salud!" Cool & Dre co-produced more tracks than anyone on the album other than Beyoncé and Jay-Z themselves.

"We always joke with Jay: Working with them two is like working with the Golden State Warriors," Dre says. "We can just dribble the ball up the floor and look like geniuses." Rolling Stone spoke with the duo – Dre is by far the chattier of the two – about how they ended up on Everything Is Love, the recording sessions in Paris and Cardiff, and how Jay-Z and Beyoncé's talents pushed them to new creative heights.

How did you get involved in the album?
Dre: We've had a relationship with Jay-Z shit, for 15 years. OG Juan introduced me to Jay shortly after "Hate It or Love It" was ringing off. He told me back in the day: "'Hate It or Love It,' I get it, I gotta let that go. But 'New York,' you were supposed to hand deliver that to me. You gotta find a way to get to me." We've always had a cordial relationship with him. We never had the opportunity to get on one of his albums. You have to be right beside him. Jay has a thing, he'll text or email: "Stay close." That's advice you have to take literally. He'll record in two weeks and the album is done.
