2009 has been pretty huge for Jay-Z: he turned 40, he went independent, his protégé Rihanna and collaborator Kanye had their own rise in fame(scandals included). And last but not least, he also made what was supposed to be a comeback album, The Blueprint 3.
Despite some criticism, Jay’s latest has taken over the airwaves, with the popular song being “Empire State of Mind” being blasted from Brooklyn to Miami to Berlin and even naming it the unofficial Yankees anthem and even the new “New York, New York.”
Tonight, Jigga Man himself rang in the New Year with Rihanna on Carson Daly’s New Year’s Eve spectacular. In addition to JAY-Z’s New Year’s Eve performance, fans got treated to the first video of the decade with the exclusive world premiere of his highly anticipated music video , “On To The Next One,” from The Blueprint 3 album featuring Swizz Beatz.
