Jay‑Z signalled the unofficial opening of the SXSW music conference last night with a performance streamed live around the world.
"I'm feeling a lot of love in this building," Jay‑Z told the audience. "I'm feeling a lot of love in this city today. I'm feeling a lot of love in this city tonight."
You get the idea.
The 80-minute AMEX Sync show, in collaboration with the fancy credit card and Twitter, saw Jay 'crowdsource' his setlist from hashtagged requests. Surprisingly, fans suggested some of the rapper's more obscure hits like '99 Problems', 'Dirt Off Your Shoulder' and 'Empire State Of Mind' as well as latest smash, 'Glory'.
