Jay-Z has finally given the green light to begin using his songs in Instagram Stories. Over the year, Jay-Z has yet to fail to deliver creativity and memorable lyrics to his songs, which many would call masterpieces. Finally, fans can enjoy more of Jay-Z on social media outlets.
Jay-Z and Angie Matinez
On Sunday (September 12), RapRadar Podcast and Complex Brackets host Brian “B. Dot” Miller announced that Jay-Z’s songs are now available to use as a backdrop to Instagram Stories. Of course, all thanks can be given to the one and only Angie Martinez. For a while, now only a limited selection of songs was available to use but now there’s an extensive variety.
“Fyi: we can use jigga’s music on instagram stories now,” B. Dot tweeted. “Thank @angiemartinez for that!”
Responding to the tweet, Angie Martinez replied, “Haaa! not really sure how u knew that but… yeah, too many great ig stories to be had. you’re all welcome.”
Over the years, Jay-Z’s social media engagement has been minimal. He’s pals with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and has a Twitter account, but he rarely uses it. He spoke about cancel culture in April, while also clarifying why he isn’t on social media.
What he had to say about the cancel culture:
“You can’t give someone a microphone for 24 hours a day and [have them] not think they have to use it!” Jay explained. “These kids, it’s unbelievable. Imagine having a microphone and you’re asked about social justice questions at 18 years old? It’s like, ‘What? I’m meant to know the answer, and if I don’t answer the correct way, if I don’t say everything right, even if my intentions are right, and I don’t say the same right thing, it’s going to be everywhere.”
Back on March 4th, Jay-Z tweeted about Tidal and ever since then remained silent.
“I said from the beginning that TIDAL was about more than just streaming music, and six years later, it has remained a platform that supports artists at every point in their careers. Artists deserve better tools to assist them in their creative journey,” Jay-Z wrote.
