Gangsta Lovin' Eve Ft. Alicia Keys
It's been a crazy year for Beyoncé and Jay Z. There was their 'On The Run Tour,' lift-gate with Solange, holidays, wedding-crashing and tons in-between. Let's relive it.
Beyoncé and Jay Z started 2014 as they meant to go on, with a bang. They brought Bey's still relatively new self-titled album to the 2014 Grammys when they did a steamy performance of 'Drunk In Love.' Picture: Getty
Can you believe it was almost one year ago that this photo went viral? When Beyoncé went out to karaoke bar with Jay, Kelly and some friends she heard some girl in a booth singing her song. What did she do? Crashed it and joined the party obviously! (But one poor girl did manage to sleep through the entire thing.) Picture: Facebook/ SingSingKaraoke
The world went wild when Beyoncé joined her sister Solange on stage at Coachella to finish the set off with her. The two performed a dance and giggled and hugged and it was beautiful.

It's hard to believe that it's been seven months since lift-gate. We all saw the lift's video footage of Beyoncé remaining stationary as her sister drop kicked her husband in the lift at the Met Gala 2014. It was probably the most controversial moment of the year, for anymore, with endless theories and rumours spreading around the internet.
Not long after, the three issued a joint statement that read; "Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family."
After whispers of a joint tour were spreading, the two confirmed it in May.
The amazing Holywood-like trailer starred Blake Lively, Rashida Jones, Jake Gyllenhaal and more. It lead you to believe it was for an actual movie, but our hopes were shattered when it ended with the line "Coming Never." Picture: Beyonce.com/Mason Poole
Only two months later the couple kicked off their tour in Miami. The tour featured a 44-song setlist that kicked off with '03 Bonnie and Clyde' and head them do a 'Young Forever and Halo' mash-up. Pictures: Beyonce.com/Kevin Mazur
Beyoncé reunited with her Desinty's Child family once more for a new Michelle Williams gospel single.
No one saw this one coming. When the first '50 Shades Of Grey' trailer dropping back in July 2014 Beyoncé's vocals were heard all over it singing a new, sultry version of her hit song 'Crazy In Love.'
Out of nowhere, Beyoncé dropped a big remix to her hit 'Flawless,' with Nicki Minaj jumped in. The best bit was when she addressed the elevator incident that occurred a few months earlier, rapping; "Of course sometimes sh*t goes down when there's a billion dollars in an elevator."
The sweetest moment of Beyoncé and Jay Z's year happened when Jay and Blue presented Beyoncé with a special award after her MTV VMA performance. An emotional Bey kissed her family amidst rumours that her and Jay Z were divorcing. Picture: Getty
Directed by the New York-based filmmaker and photographer Dikayl Rimmasch, 'Bang Bang' followed the alter egos of hip-hop's power couple as they "speed through the Californian desert in a dusty 1960s Pontiac GTO with a manifest poise and stylish swagger that could only be embodied by the world’s foremost musical couple".
During their 'On The Run' tour visual of Beyonce and Jay Z's wedding were shown on screen during their performances. It's the first time any footage or photographs of their mysterious wedding day were made public, and an emotional moment.

You'd think it was time for Beyoncé to rest after the couple of months they'd had. But there's no rest for Beyoncé. She was back to work, this time on a sportswear collaborative collection for Topshop. Picture: Getty

Of course, just because the album and tour are done with, don't think Bey doesn't have more surprises up her sleeve. Not only has she released a platinum edition album, but on it were two new songs and the amazing video for her '7/11' single came shortly after.
