Hov is back in the festival circuit.
Could we really be close to a new Jay Z album? Rumors have been circulating since the release of Beyoncé’s Lemonade, but things have really ramped up since the start of the year.
Then, following news of Beyoncé pregnant with twins, Hov joined his wife on DJ Khaled’s new single, “Shining.” He made an appearance at a random Jay Electronica show talking about getting an album out (ok, he was referring to Act II, but still). Then, after becoming the first rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, he was the lead guest on Frank Ocean’s new Beats 1 show, blonded Radio (yes, the majority owner of Tidal on Apple Music). And now, Jay Z’s name is headlining a new festival.
Unfortunately, the rest of the line-up is far from rap.
Going down this August in England, Jay Z will be co-headlining Virgin’s V Festival alongside Pink. The two-day event will also feature performances from Ellie Goulding, Craig David, Rudimental, Sean Paul, Jason Derulo, and others.
Our first announcement is here!
