As Netflix’s upcoming all-Black Western The Harder They Fall starring Idris Elba, Regina King, Jonathan Majors, and more continues to premiere in different cities across the globe, one of the film’s notable co-producers, Jay-Z, shared a special moment on the red carpet in L.A. with longtime friend Kelly Rowland.
The event brought a ton of celebrities including Karrueche Tran, Winnie Harlow, and of course, his wife Beyoncé. But it was seeing Kelly Rowland that made Jay do a full 180 before heading into the event. Jay’s face completely lit up when he saw the former DC3 member and had the purest reaction as he approached his friend for a hug. “I didn’t even know you were here,” he told Kelly as he walked over to share an embrace.
The entire moment was caught on camera and has since made its rounds on social media, causing Twitter to gush over the moment and of course, give it the typical meme treatment in pure Twitter fashion.
“Obsessed with this super cute moment from last night’s special screening of The Harder They Fall — Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter (who is a producer) is headed inside but pulls a 180 as soon as he sees Kelly Rowland! That’s family right there,” the streamer tweeted.
The folks over at Netflix weren’t the only ones who loved the heartwarming moment shared by the two music legends. The video quickly went viral on social media, with many fans commenting on how nice it is to see Hov so laid back.
The all-time rap great has been making his rounds to the different premieres for The Harder They Fall, answering some funny questions along the way. At the London Film Festival, Hov was asked if he could ride horses like the characters in the movie do, to which Jay replied, “I can ride a Porsche. It got horsepower.”
People on the internet, as they usually do, took the clip and turned it into various memes. Check out how fans are reacting to his and Kelly Rowland’s recent reunion below.
