Given the successful collaboration on their first album together titled Watch The Throne, the two rappers flew to the United Arab Emirates before Christmas in order to set the mood on a 16-year-old’s birthday party.
The girl is not just anybody, she is the niece of Sheikh Mansour, the multi billionaire owner of Manchester City Football Club.
The rappers reportedly pocketed $3 million each for the exclusive gig.
For the party, attended by several hundred guests, Jay-Z and Kanye performed songs on the album Watch The Throne, which was launched in August. The duo ended the set with a number of solo hits.
Before the holiday season, they had just wrapped up a lengthy North American tour.
Earlier this month Jay-Z told MTV News that that the second release from his and West’s Watch The Throne album will come out next year.
He said: “We – I say ‘we’ because I’m in Throne mode – we’re in a great place creatively. You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year… We’ve really found our zone.”
