For the last concert of Jay-Z’s eight-night run at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, not only did the rapper allow the show to be live-streamed (via his new Life and Times YouTube channel), but he brought out the wife, Beyonce Knowles.
“I’m so proud to be here,” said Beyonce as part of her “Diva”-“Crazy In Love” medley — with hubby Jay joining the singer for the latter number, as he did on the 2003 track.
Some PDA came with the mid-set number, like when Jay playfully slapped his girl on the bootie and an adorable embrace at the son’s end.
Beyonce made a return appearance for the night’s closing number, “Young Forever,” singing the hook lifted from the 1984 “Alphaville” hit and obliging her husband’s request: “BB, bring the chorus in.”
Jay-Z is a minority owner of the Brooklyn Nets, who will play in the 19,000-seat arena, which was officially opened on Sept. 28.
