Jay-Z Just Joined Instagram, And He Can Already Claim A Status No One Else Has

“I love how Beyoncé isn’t shy to promote small and growing artists!!”

Last night, Jay-Z quietly joined a little social media platform called Instagram — approximately nine years too late.

But — hey! — better late than never.

What’s more is that he can claim an honor no one else has: Beyoncé now follows one person on Instagram instead of zero for the first time, and it’s — of course — her recently Hall of Fame inducted husband.

Naturally, he followed her back on the platform, and follows no one else.

Overnight, the handle @jayz received verification (duh), as well as 2 million followers — which are sure to keep climbing as the hours progress. His profile picture is a headshot of him prior to his fame, rocking a gold chain and grillz.

The only information currently in his bio is a link to his 2008-founded entertainment company Roc Nation, and his first image is a promotional poster for The Harder They Fall, a Black Western flick he co-executive produced.

It’s rare to see the rapper and media mogul on social media. After his induction, he gave a few shout-outs on his rarely used Twitter, joking about losing his password to the platform.

In my excitement , I failed to prize, and acknowledge JAZ-O, he was the hometown hero that made the dream tangible . Thank you good man… ok let me lose this password for another year or so . Thank you all again , incredibly humbled by your love .

Given his relative privacy on social media, fans were shocked to see the 51-year-old on Instagram. Here are some of the best reactions to the news below:

It’s historic, really:

Jay Z really became the first person in the world to be followed by Beyoncé on Instagram. She hasn’t followed anyone since she made the account in 2012.

But, just in case you want to restore the balance:

Serenity NOW … if you block Jay Z on instagram. It will show Beyoncé following ZERO again !!!

Personally…I really look forward to reporting on this if it ever happens:

Now when they beefing she gone unfollow him

“#Roommates it seems like #JayZ and #Beyonce has gotten into an altercation 👀 Bey’s follow count is now back down to 0. Do you think #JayZ been cutting up? Let us know #Roommates”

Don’t mind me, just over here yelling:

@PopCrave omg congrats to him! i love how beyoncé isn’t shy to promote small and growing artists!! a legend indeed

Well, that’s it from me! It’s the end of a significant social media-secluded Beyoncé era, and perhaps the beginning of a new one.
