Jay Z and Blue Ivy Dance Backstage at Beyonce Show
The 24-hour news cycle and the immediate need for content has been responsible for catching people at their worst moments. But every now and then precious moments, like the one caught back stage at Beyonce‘s Formation World Tour show in Tampa Bay, Fla., prove that the world isn’t such a terrible place and give everyone a few seconds of humanity.
As Bey performed “End of Time” for the stadium-sized crowd, her husband and daughter danced together backstage as Jay Z twirled Blue Ivy around and around. A far off TMZ camera caught the moment and offered a sweet candid moment between daddy and daughter.
Beyonce’s Lemonade album captivated the music world as the project’s subject matter and accompanying HBO film seemed to expose Jay Z’s infidelity. However, multiple sources close to the two say that Jay was involved in developing the storyline, knowing that at the end of the day it would drive sales through the roof.
“Jay was involved in the creation of Lemonade and knew every song Bey was going to release,” a source told E! News. “He knew the lyrics; he knew the implications. He had to approve the songs before release. Jay is a very smart businessman… Bottom line is that they are both really smart and they both saw dollar signs.”
Lemonade charted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, selling 653,000 units. It marks the sixth time a Beyonce album has gone No. 1.
If we’re to believe the video of Jay and Blue dancing together, all is well in the Carter household and the money continues to roll in.
