Are the couple set to go on the road?

Jay-Z has dropped a massive hint that he’s planning a tour with his other half Beyoncé Knowles.

The couple – who married in 2008 – have appeared on each other’s albums and briefly performed together but have never hit the road as a double act.

‘It’s always floating out there, it’s floating out there,’ says Jay, 43.

‘It has to be the real thing and it’s slowly making sense, more sense every day, every day it’s making more sense. As far as a tour, not an album.’

Fans may have to wait a while for the loved-up pair to gig as husband and wife as Beyoncé, 31, is on her The Mrs Carter Show world tour until December.

But it would make sense for Jay and Beyoncé to do their travelling while one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy is still young.

Proud father Jay is smitten with his little girl.

‘[She’s] very thoughtful and very inside of her own mind, pretty much like her pop, she will answer in her own time,’ Jay tells Radio 1’s Zane Lowe.

‘The birth of my child gave me this new energy and focus.’
