Jay-Z and Beyonce celebrate their seventh wedding anniversary
Jay-Z has posted a clip of his wedding video to instagram.
The rapper posted the clip to celebrate his seventh wedding anniversary to singer Beyonce.
In the clip the pair stand opposite one another, with Beyonce in a traditional white gown and veil and Jay Z wearing a tuxedo. A large ring is placed on Beyonce’s finger before the pair walk down the aisle together and are showered in petals by their guests.
The pair married in secret in New York on April 4, 2008. Although footage of the ceremony was screened to fans at their joint On The Run tour earlier this year, this is the first time a video has been shared with the public.
Jay-Z recently launched his music streaming platform Tidal.
The Project Panther Bidco company, co-owned by Jay-Z, acquired Tidal from its Norwegian parent company Aspiro for 464 million kroner (about £47 million). Tidal Hifi already offers more than 25 million songs and 75,000 music videos to more than half a million subscribers in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany and Poland.
An all-star cast launched Tidal in New York last week (March 30) with Kanye West, Madonna, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Arcade Fire, Jack White, J Cole, Nicki Minaj, Deadmau5, Daft Punk and Alicia Keys all attending the live-streamed launch, with Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Calvin Harris present via live video link-up. All those present then signed Tidal’s charter.
Speaking to Billboard in a new interview about Tidal, Jay Z said: “We didn’t like the direction music was going and thought maybe we could get in and strike an honest blow and if, you know, the very least we did was make people wake up and try to improve the free vs. paid system, and promote fair trade, then it would be a win for us anyway.”
Beyonce used Tidal to debut her new song ‘Die With You’ on Wednesday (April 4) – the couple’s official seventh anniversary.
The song includes the lines “I don’t have a reason to be if I can’t be with you” and “I live so I can die with you.” At the end of the video, which you can see below, the camera man is revealed to be Jay Z himself.
