The release of the surprise third installment of the trilogy of albums taken from the real-life experiences of Beyonce and Jay-Z as a married couple has been completed with the release of “Everything Is Love.” On the album, both superstars are giving their all as they explore the life they live together surrounded by a close inner circle of friends and business partners. The sixth track on the album, “Friends” namechecks most of the members of the management collective involved with Jay-Z’s label, Roc Nation.
Two of the most important members of the team at Roc Nation are Desiree and OG Juan Perez who are both namechecked by the pair during the song “Friends.” OG Juan Perez has been one of the most important members of the Roc Nation team for decades and has become known for his partnership with Jay-Z in the studio and in other business ventures throughout the 90s and 00s. The pair worked closely together on many of the most successful albums of Jay-Z until “The Black Album” which he was not involved in, but he did receive a shoutout from the rapper who expressed unhappiness OG Juan was not in the studio during recording. The two business partners have also sought to build a number of business ventures together including “The 40/40 Club” sports bar.
The importance of OG Juan and Desiree Perez to the so-called Hova Circle of Influence within Roc Nation was shown with the decision to indulge the 50th birthday of the head of Roc Nation Sports with a lavish party. The infamous bar tab of $91,000 from the party shows that success is flowing into the life of the family and friends of Jay-Z and Beyonce all the time.

When it comes to music there is one thing for certain about The Chainsmokers: Alex Pall is clearly the talkative one among the two in this duo. He has proven, over the years, that does not hold back with any type of filter when he discusses his personal life or his music with Andrew Taggart.
This duo has been creating hits since 2014 with songs like “#Selfie,” and it goes to show that there are a ton of people that are interested in what is being sparked by the creative minds that has come forth from The Chainsmokers. Alex has gone on to talk about new music that has surfaced, and he has also given people some info on how some of the older hit music came about.
The “Kanye” song from several years ago, he has mentioned once, was a song that talked about embracing what your do regardless of who disagrees with it. The “Closer” song seems to get someone into a world that mirrors lyrics that could just as easily come from Alex Pall’s own life. He talks about all the music that is be generated, but Alex comes from a really honest place where he also talks about the women in his life.
Pall is no stranger to putting in the time and effort to get the women, but now he says that he works even more because he wanted to make millions to have access to hotter women. These type of statements in interviews with Alex Pall may be a little more than fans bargained for, but he comes off as entertaining, and that is what makes the fans listen. They truly become intertwined in the music that he is making and the interviews that he is doing. Most artists are going to make the music that reflects their own personal life, and the steamy tracks that connect the dots to Alex Pall and his private time with the ladies.
This duo has multiple platinum singles, and it appears that they are just getting started. Alex has stated they they like to work hard and play hard.
