Beyonce and Jay-Z will headline a hurricane benefit concert in NYC next month, and a bunch of other Roc Nation artists are expected to join in, US Weekly reports. JAY-Z also sent love and prayers to Houston during his concert at the Made In America Festival in Philadelphia.
Beyonce continues to give back to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
Beyoncé has supported relief efforts for Harvey victims over the past few weeks through her Bey Good foundation as well as during Bun B's Hand in Hand telethon on September 12, where she gave a rousing, emotional speech.
Hip-hop has continuously played an active role in hurricane relief efforts since the natural disasters left their mark in Texas, Florida and surrounding areas.
The concert, according to Us Weekly, will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Tuesday, October 17. Such efforts include Trae Tha Truth rescuing victims by boat (like Orlando Magic's Jonathan Simmons), Zoey Dollaz making the trip from Miami to assist via jet-ski, and artists such as Drake, Nicki Minaj, T.I.
Update (September 21, 3:03 PM ET): In a statement, Tidal, the streaming service that Jay-Z owns, said that it will host its annual benefit concert, but won't confirm the headliners, the supporting lineup, or the date.
