Jay Z gave a shout out to Bjork during his gig last night (January 19) in Uniondale, New York.

Björk, who was in the crowd at the concert, shared the news on her official Facebook page. Jay Z also played a snippet of her 2001 single 'Pagan Poetry', in tribute to the musician.

Jay Z is currently on his Magna Carta North American tour. Earlier this month, he was joined on stage by a 12 year-old fan who performed the rapper's verse from 'Clique' in Greensboro, North Carolina after he spotted the young fan holding a sign which read: "Can I Rap For You?"

Late last year, in Los Angeles, the rapper paid tribute to the late Nelson Mandela prior to a performance of 'Young Forever'.
