Jay-Z and Beyonce have always kept the details of their marriage under wraps. But lately Mr. and Mrs. Carter have been talking publicly about what makes their love work.

In an interview with Miami’s 99 Jamz — where the hip hop mogul was promoting his album, lavishly — Jay-Z had nothing but praise for his better half’s work ethic. He even went as far as comparing her to The King of Pop.

“What I’ve learned from her is similar to what I learned from Mike [Jackson] — and I know that’s blasphemy to compare the two because Mike was such an innovator — but I think she’s like the second coming,” he said.

“You know, the hard work and dedication that she puts into her shows. It just makes you want to work harder at your own craft. She’s like a machine,” he added.
