Jay-Z and Beyonce didn't acknowledge their relationship for years, this despite the fact that everyone already knew they were together. Fortunately, hip-hop's royal couple have become increasingly comfortable playing characters in each others' creative endeavors.

Jay-Z appears in Beyonce's self-made documentary and gets an awkward shoutout on "Bow Down" ("Don't think I'm just his little wife"), and now Jay's returning the favor by dropping Bey bombs all over "Magna Carta Holy Grail," the album he released Tuesday.

Ahead, glance at every Beyonce reference on the album. The man's got his wife on his mind, from using Beyonce as a sign of success akin to a car ("My past ain't pretty, my lady is, my Mercedes is"), to hinting at an, um, exciting sex life ("I want a wife that f-k me like a prostitute"), to sniping back at Lil Wayne's threats ("wanna kidnap wifey / good luck with that, bruh") to praising her every characteristic ("Boy meets girl, girl perfect woman").

I wanna Rothko, no I wanna brothel
No, I want a wife that f-k me like a prostitute
Let's make love on a million, in a dirty hotel
With the fan on the ceiling, all for the love of drug dealing

- "Picasso Baby"

Sleeping every night next to Mona Lisa
The modern day version
With better features

- "Picasso Baby"

Boy meets girl, girl perfect woman
- "Part II (On the Run)"

I'm an outlaw, got an outlaw chick
Bumping 2Pac, on my outlaw sh-t
Matching tats, this Ink don't come off
Even if rings come off

- "Part II (On the Run)"

My past ain't pretty, my lady is, my Mercedes is
My baby momma harder than a lot of you n----s
Keep it 100, hit the lottery n----s
- "Part II (On the Run)"

She was a good girl, 'til she knew me
- "Part II (On the Run)"

Deeper then words, beyond right
Die for your love, beyond life
Sweet as a Jesus piece, beyond ice
Blind me baby with your neon lights
Ray Bans on, police in sight
Oh, what a beautiful death
Let's both wear white
If you go to heaven and they bring me to hell
Just sneak out and meet me, bring a box of L's
She fell in love with the bad guy, the bad guy
What you doing with them rap guys, them rap guys
They ain't see potential in me girl, but you see it
If it's me and you against the world, then so be it

- "Part II (On the Run)"

Girl why you never ready
For as long as you took
You better look like Halle Berry
Or Beyoncéeeeee. Sh-t then we getting married

- "Beach Is Better"

Slight change of winds
It's barely 12 noon and my wife changed again

- "Jay-Z Blue"

N----s wanna kidnap wifey
Good luck with that bruh
You must gonna hide your whole family
What you think we wearing black for?

- "La Familia"

Pardon my hubris, Stanley Kubrick
With eyes wide shut, I could cook up two bricks
Turn nickels to dime, turn dimes to quarters
Turn wives from daughters, oh, I'm clear as water
And just for clarity, my presence is charity

- "Nickles and Dimes"
