The rapper and his wife Beyonce Knowles are often spotted at Barclays Centre watching Jay-Z’s basketball team the Brooklyn Nets, so Jay decided to really make the revamp arena his home away from home by splashing out on a luxurious suite for their 12-month-old daughter Blue Ivy.
A source told Us magazine “Jay rents a luxurious basement suite for $1 million a year. It has an area for Blue filled with toys.” However, the VIP space is not just for kids and can also be converted into an entertainment area for adults. The insider added “It’s all glass with a champagne bar and TV screen. Jay lets friends use his digs when he’s not there.”
Jay-Z shared the bill with Coldplay at the Barclays Center to welcome in the New Year on Monday night and was joined by good friend Chris Martin to sing the traditional Auld Lang Syne at 11:59 pm. The show had opened earlier with Coldplay, who performed songs like The Scientist, Paradise, Viva la Vida, Princess of China and Yellow. The band were joined by Jay for the track Lost, which Jay-Z originally collaborated with them for on their 2008 EP, Prospekt’s March.
After the traditional midnight celebrations, Jay-Z appropriately opened his set with his hit track On to the Next One. The rapper performed 25 songs, including Hovi Baby, I Just Wanna Love U (Give It To Me) and Izzo (H.O.V.A.).Tweet
