But Hov wasn’t the only big-name superstar at the event, rappers Big Sean, Chance the Rapper and J. Cole were among the rappers who performed. Oh, and his superstar wife, Beyonce, slayed the event with backup dancers who donned Clinton-inspired pantsuits. The concert was in support of Hillary Clinton’s run to become the first woman president of the United States.

And that is why, I’m with her,” said Jay Z.
“We have to vote. The world looks to us as a progressive country that leads change,” added Beyonce. Before the concert wrapped up, Clinton graced the stage to talk to concertgoers and deliver a powerful message. “How about those pantsuits?” she joked, referring to Beyonce’s outfit, before getting more serious. “I want to be a president that helps everybody fulfill their God-given potential,” she said. After Clinton’s brief speech, Jay Z returned to the stage for one more performance.
