Well if you’re looking for the best experience of your life then this was definitely the place to be. First of all lets think a few years back. It seems like Jay Z and JT hitting the stage together was just a music fantasy that we all thought would be cool if it happened, but never did we think this would actually go down.
Now I find myself sitting in section 216 waiting on this mega show to start. Not only was the set incredible, but they started the show off with “Hoy Grail”. Now I don’t know about you but that is one epic song. No matter what you’re doing, turn that song on and it’ll make you feel immaculate. So they STARTED THE SHOW with that one. I looked over at my friend Mike with complete shock. Oh and JT sounds good on record, but he sounds even better in person. It’s crazy to imagine, but just trust me. There wasn’t any choreography really but JT still broke it down solo during the songs, he’s definitely still one of the best when it comes to dance.
One of the coolest parts was that not only did Jay and JT do songs that they have features on, but also dope little add-ons like JT doing the cop voice on “99 problems”. Hova didn’t get too much into his new album only performing “Holy Grail” and “Tom Ford” which is an understandable move since it’s such a new album and mostly everyone wanted to hear the classic Jay Z cuts. He took it all the way back to reasonable doubt and made his way up through the Hova timeline. “Big pimpin” got the place going crazy and same with “On to the Next One”. Pretty much every track he picked was on point and had people screaming and rapping along the entire time. Another sick aspect was when Jay performed “Empire State of Mind”, JT threw in some vocals by singing classic Sinatra both before and after the song.
There was also a retractable platform in the middle of the stage that they would come out on when switching artists. One would go down under the stage and the other would come up. I thought that part was really dope and just their chemistry throughout the entire show was so on point. It seemed like they were just two best friends having a great time performing for 40,000 people. Yes 40,000 people, still can’t believe that number at the moment. JT did a lot more moving around the stage dancing from the far left to right, playing guitar, piano, messing around with the band and much more. Jay Z was more swagged out and floated all over the place but both had amazing stage presence. Just when I thought the show was over with they both came out and performed both “Suit & Tie” and “Forever Young”. Jay told everyone in the place to put their phones up so it looked like we were in space for the most part. It was cool seeing them come out in blazers and champagne in their hands for “Suit & Tie”. They also did a toast to the crowd and thanked everyone for coming out.
Overall the energy in this place was non-stop and I really don’t have one bad thing to say about it. Just the way these two work together seems like something no other two artists could ever do. Even when Kanye and Jay-Z hit the road together for “Watch the Throne” doesn’t match up to this, mainly because they’re two different genres that mesh so well. Nothing better than a super talented vocalist like JT to go along with one of the best rappers of all time. This will definitely be something that ill remember for the rest of my life and feel lucky that I could be in the building for it with great friends. If this tour is stopping in your city it would be a damn shame to miss it.

Rihanna is another one that is always on the front of some magazine, and deservedly so. She’s definitely an icon in this day & age so it only makes sense to put her on the cover of Elle UK. Here’s her most recent spread in the magazine.
This looks like one of the coolest things you can have outside of a smartphone with the Instagram app. We’ve heard of the Socialmatic camera before but this one actually prints out your photos to create real life instagrams. Kind of like the modern day polaroid camera.
Even though the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition is on the way, we can’t forget about our angels, Victoria’s Secret models of course. Candice Swanenpoel recently posed on the beach in some VS lingerie and the pictures have been the biggest hit online today. That’s what you see above and below but click HERE for more info.
