Jay Z and Surprise Guest Beyonce ‘Tackle’ Super Bowl Party


beyone-superb“I want y’all to know you’re at a rock & roll show,” said JayZ near the beginning of a brisk, 80-minute set at the DirecTV Super Saturday Night party, addressing an invite-only crowd dressed in everything from business suits to Elway jerseys. It certainly felt like a rock show at times, as Jay’s small band (guitars, keys, drums – just like the Doors) blazed through heavy versions of “U Don’t Know,” “On to the Next One,” and “99 Problems.”

Queen B was summoned for a performance of her current single “Drunk in Love.” Unlike the couple’s sexy showing at the Grammys, this one was all smiles and hugs and laughs, with one of the most famous rappers in the world gladly playing hypeman.

Their chemistry – you know, being drunk in love and all – was the highlight of an event that closed with an audience member doing his best Sinatra to open up “Empire State of Mind,” and, after a few more songs, a version of “Young Forever” dedicated to Nelson Mandela.
