Beyoncé and Jay Z's Most World-Conquering Music Videos
Beyoncé and Jay Z will bring their unique blend of braggadacio and badassery to AT&T Stadium tonight, and we can only assume that they'll be taking over the entire metroplex. Easily the music industry's biggest power couple (if not just the biggest period), their long-awaited joint On The Run Tour is just the thing to solidify their world-beating status. Whether we believe Page Six and its breakup rumors or not, we're just excited to hear and see these two in one big stadium.
Screenshot from "Single Ladies" "Single Ladies" is about as boss as it gets. Is it Bey's most world-beating video though?
In honor of Bey and Jay's arrival, here are their top 10 that show us just who runs the world. (Hint: it involves at least one girl.) It's basically just them being all sorts of extraordinary.

10. "99 Problems" by Jay Z
Just four years prior to his marriage to Beyoncé, Jay Z was rapping about his problems sans any woman. Ah, times were much simpler then.
9. "Diva" by Beyoncé
Beyoncé taught us the true meaning of Diva with this song and we know we can never repay her. But in order to do our best, we'll watch this video on repeat. Our favorite part is when she opens up her fan to reveal money lining it. Classic.
8. "Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)" by Jay-Z
There's something cliché about a millionaire rapper reflecting on his tough past, but hey, we're not complaining. We're just happy this video showcases a softer side of Jay Z, who sings here with some young children.
7. "Run the World (Girls)" by Beyoncé
This video seems to be the epitome of everything Beyoncé stands for. She explains that women are in fact strong enough to bear the children, and then turn around and get right back to business soon afterward. God bless Beyoncé.
6. "Dirt Off Your Shoulder" by Jay Z
This video pretty much oozes Jay Z's coolness with his simple dusting-off-the-shoulder maneuver anytime he catches a bad break. And we'll always love him for that.
