In Jay-Z and Beyonce's debut collaboration, "'03 Bonnie & Clyde," the hip hop mogul spits, "All I need in this life of sin / Is me and my girlfriend" as the Destiny's Child frontwoman responds, "Down to ride til the very end / It's me and my boyfriend."

Now, according to the lyrics of "Part II (On the Run)," their new duet for Jay's upcoming album Magna Carta Holy Grail, the Knowles-Carters are back at it.

"Who wants that perfect love story anyway?" opens the track with lyrics about getting matching tattoos, "bumping Tupac" and making love with police sirens blaring. The Pac mention could indicate that "Part II" is actually the next chapter to the "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" single as that song samples the late rapper's '96 song "Me and My Girlfriend."

Despite it being on a Monday, anyone who is anyone showed up at last night's Emmy awards—from Stephen Colbert, Weird Al, Lena Dunham to so much more. Backstage, "The Voice" coaches Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani mingled with "Scandal" actress, Kerry Washington. Ah, to be part of the beautiful and famous crowd must be awesome, even hanging out backstage is cool!
