Rappers Kanye West and Jay-Z have been paid just under £4 million ($6.1 million) to perform at a 16th birthday party for the daughter of an Arab billionaire and niece of Manchester City Football Club’s billionaire owner, Sheikh Mansour. The duo, who recently finished a 33-date tour around America, were flown down to Dubai to perform for one day at the party.
In a recent interview Jay-Z hinted at releases from both himself and West and a possible second collaboration sometime next year. “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.”
Kanye West is set to hit our shores next month for the Big Day Out Festival touring nationally late January through to early February. No word on whether Kanye will bring Jay-Z with him, however chances are unlikely as Jay-Z’s first child is set to be born during the festival.
