Beyonce Makes Surprise Appearance at Jay-Z's Final Barclays Concert (Video)
The husband and wife team closed out the last of an eight-night run at Brooklyn's brand new sports arena.
For the last concert of Jay-Z’s eight-night run at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the rapper pulled out all the stops. Not only did Jay allow the show to be live-streamed (via his new Life and Times YouTube channel), but the borough’s favorite son also brought out the ultimate trophy: 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. Clearly, this couple remains crazy in love.
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.”
