Jay-Z may have a plethora of fans across the globe but he himself is a fan of one special lady: his wife, Beyoncé.
Earlier this week the Brooklyn rap star joined the former Destiny's Child frontwoman at the 'American Idol' Season 10 finale, where she debuted '1+1,' a ballad off her forthcoming solo album, '4.' Before B hit the stage to perform for viewers at home and those in the audience, she flexed her vocal chops in her dressing room, all while her husband caught everything on camera.
Hov filmed Beyoncé as she ran through the lyrics of her new song, accompanied by a woman playing a keyboard to back her up. In the room were her mother, Tina Knowles and her nephew, Daniel Julez, seated on a black leather sofa. Jay-Z placed the visuals he captured on his new Life + Times website, where he wrote a touching sentiment about his lady love.
Without fancy equipment to enhance her voice, the video proves Beyoncé's talents are surely innate.
I luve this dam song so much that I actually cried hearing Beyoncé perform this song for the first time on the Season 10 Finale of ‘American Idol’, but to hear that she sounds exactly the same without any special effects is amazing. I would give a arm & leg just to be Beyoncé's hairstylist, make-up artist, stylist, assistant, mother, nephew, help, or even husband just to have the blessing of being in her company when she rehearse in dressing rooms or at home. That is so special to see greatness like that in their rarest form, its just amazing. And for some reason when Beyoncé sings this song 1+1, she kind of sound like a young Michael Jackson at certain notes.
