Beyonce, Jay Z's On the Run Tour: 5 Collaborations They Must Do
Throw up your Roc Nation signs and slip into your House of Deréon formal wear because Jay Z and Beyonce's On the Run Tour is right around the corner! The reigning king and queen of the music world announced their 16-date, cross-country tour on Monday, April 28.
As Sasha Fierce and HOVA finalize their setlist, Us Weekly has some suggestions:
1. Upgrade U
Straying from the fan-favorite "Crazy in Love," why not start things off with this hit from Beyonce's 2006 B'Day album? Picture Queen Bey sitting on her throne dressed like HOVA and lip syncing his opening rap, just like in the video. Chills. (Bonus: Beyonce's stylish sister, Solange, wrote the track.)
2. Déjà Vu
Because the world needs to see Beyonce shimmy and shake her hips in that tiny green skirt again. It's time. Bonus points if they can somehow get sand on the stage in an homage to the sexy 2006 music video.

3. '03 Bonnie & Clyde
It doesn't have to be Throwback Thursday for us to appreciate the Bey-Jay duet that started it all. Let's go get 'em!
4. Forever Young
If you feel like crying tears of bey-utiful joy, watch the clip of them above, performing the remix of Alphaville's '80s hit at Coachella in April 2011. It allows both stars to show off their vocals and slow things down before the booty-poppin' greatness of…
5. Crazy in Love/Drunk in Love Remix
Hear Us out on this pitch! Beyonce sings "the radio say 'speed it up,' I just go slower" in her new song "Partition," but if they were to start off with the classic, up-tempo "Crazy in Love" from 2003 and transition into a similarly-paced version of "Drunk in Love," it could be concert gold.
Bonus Pick: Part II (On the Run)
Of course they're going to have to perform this track, from Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail album. It's not called the Crazy in Love Tour. But seriously, no one is complaining. It's basically the modern day "'03 Bonnie & Clyde."
