Houston's finest export, Beyoncé, and her husband, Jay-Z, dropped a joint album, Everything Is Love (yes, I know it's stylized in all capital letters, but I'd prefer to not scream right now) as The Carters on Saturday, June 16. Welcome out from under your rock! With a little help from our friends at Genius, we broke down the best lines to use while you flex on the 'gram all summer long. Prefer to find your own? It's now streaming on Spotify, meaning you don't need to make a new email address for another free trial of Tidal.

My friends are goals, your friends are foes.
