Eight was great too. After releasing a beautiful, new studio version of “Die With You” on her ninth wedding anniversary, R&B superstar Beyonce continued the celebration on Tuesday, April 4, by posting never-before-seen photos from her 2016 wedding anniversary trip to the Grand Canyon with Jay Z.

The Lemonade mastermind, 35, shared the sweet photos on her website, and tagged the images under “Anniversary,” “Die With You,” and “My Life.”
