Other fans chimed in, saying, “Bey and Jay moving to Japan? That’s lit! Who wouldn’t want to live in the land of sushi and sumo?”

Another person weighed in on the fan theory, mentioning a comment from a psychic Youtuber who predicted the move: “It’s so funny that Sloan Bella said Jay Z and Beyonce were leaving the country.”
