’03 Bonnie and Clyde’ was only the beginning: A timeline of Beyoncé and Jay-Z

Beyoncé just brought to our attention that she and hubby Jay-Z have just reached the 15th anniversary of their iconic collaboration “03 Bonnie and Clyde.” This classic throwback has an East Coast hip-hop, R&B feel, and samples the beat of Tupac Shakur’s 1996 song “Me and My Girlfriend.” “03 Bonnie and Clyde” hit No. 4 on the Billboard Top 100, and ended up being Jay-Z’s second top 10 single, and Queen Bey’s very first as a solo artist.

Why is this song so iconic? Because “03 Bonnie and Clyde” was the very first collaboration between Jay and Bey, and it’s obvious that they’ve been inseparable ever since. Following “03 Bonnie and Clyde,” the Carters began to set the bar for the true definition of a power couple. It’s amazing what these two have accomplished separately, but what’s even more amazing is the quality and quantity of work they have accomplished together. Check out some of Jay and Bey’s most popular collaborations below.
