They're music's biggest power couple, but how well do you know Beyonce and Jay Z? Here's the story behind some of their most famous music and collaborations.
Back in 2002, US record producer Rich Harrison was struggling to convince colleagues that the first draft of 'Crazy In Love' was a winner, none of them "digging" the beat. Harrison remained convinced he was onto something special but decided to keep it in his bottom drawer until the right artist came along. Enter Beyonce, who also initially had doubts about the track, which she deemed "too retro". After some convincing, Beyonce gave Harrison two hours to complete the track and its lyrics – something he later confessed was very difficult to do as he had such a bad hangover. Jay Z became involved at a later date, writing the rap elements of the song in ten minutes during the early hours of one morning.
