Best Beyoncé and Jay Z collaboration: 'Crazy in Love' or 'Drunk in Love'? | The Tylt
Beyoncé and Jay Z have been "crazy in love" and "drunk in love" since late 2002 (before either hit song dropped). Jayoncé recently celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary on April 4. While Queen Bey shared wedding photos and a new love song on Tidal entitled "Die With You," we can't help but get nostalgic about their music collaborations. "03 Bonnie and Clyde" was their first hit, but "Crazy in Love" and "Drunk in Love" are their biggest hits. Which is their greatest song together? 🎤
Best Beyoncé and Jay Z collaboration: 'Crazy in Love' or 'Drunk in Love'?
"03 Bonnie and Clyde" came out in the fall of 2002, which also hinted at Jay and Bey's relationship. The two collaborated twice on Bey's debut solo album "Dangerously in Love" in 2003. "Crazy in Love" was not only the lead single, but out of the two collaborations on the album—it became a mega hit.
"Crazy in Love" topped the Billboard Hot 100, became the song of the summer in 2003, and one of the biggest songs of 2003 and the 2000s. "Crazy in Love" won the Grammys for Best Rap/Song Collaboration and Best R&B Song at the 46th Annual Grammys. Go Jayoncé!

"Drunk in Love" debuted at #2 on the Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs before topping the chart. The song also peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. If anything is certain, "Drunk in Love" is Jayoncé's biggest hit together since "Crazy in Love." That hit won the Grammys for Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song at the 57th Annual Grammys.
Although, hits like "Upgrade U" and "Déjà Vu" are memorable, "Drunk in Love" became a pop culture phenomena with many references over the years back to the song's themes—recapturing their magic from the "Crazy in Love" era. Did "Drunk in Love" top "Crazy in Love" though?
