The performance configurations switch seamlessly, with Jay disappearing through a trap door in the floor to make way for Beyoncé and her troupe of eight dancers. And they often support each other in ways we haven’t heard before – not just when Beyoncé takes over the Justin Timberlake part of “Holy Grail” or the Mr. Hudson part in “Young Forever,” but the way “If I Were a Boy” took on some of the heavy metal elements of “99 Problems” or the way “Love on Top” moved into The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” to better segue into Jay’s “Izzo.” [Newsday]

Beyonce and Jay Z brought their ‘On the Run’ tour to the NYC-area for two nights at MetLife Stadium this weekend (Friday, 7/11 and Saturday, 7/12). Their 46-song setlist included favorites from all over their careers like “No Church in the Wild,” “Crazy In Love,” “Flawless,” “Hard Knock Life,” “Tom Ford,” “Countdown,” “Izzo,” “Single Ladies” and so many more. As the review above mentions, Beyonce took over Justin Timberlake’s part in “Holy Grail” only a day after JT played that song himself in NYC. Check out a couple videos from night 1, along with the full setlist, below. Stay tuned for more footage from the tour in their upcoming HBO special.

Earlier in the day on Saturday, Jay Z made another appearance in NYC when another Jay, Jay Electronica (who’s signed to Jay Z’s label), brought him out during his set at Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. They played “Young Gifted & Black”, “We Made It”, “Shiny Suit Theory”, and “P.S.A. (Public Service Announcement).” Videos of that (via MissInfo) below.
