Shawn Carter, US rapper and record producer better known as Jay-Z, has finally opened an Instagram account. 


The 51-year-old billionaire businessman joined the Facebook-owned platform on Tuesday and already has 1.4 million followers.

Checks by TheCable Lifestyle showed the music star is only following Beyoncé, his wife, who currently has 216 million followers on the platform.

His first and only post on the platform is a photo of ‘The Harder They Fall’, a 2021 movie which he co-produced.


The movie, scheduled to hit Netflix later today, follows an outlaw, who discovers his enemy is being released from prison and reunites his gang to seek revenge.

The award-winning musician also shared a premiere countdown clock for the movie premiere on his Instagram story.

The project features top movie stars including Jonathan Majors, Idris Elba, Zazie Beetz, Regina King, Lakeith Stanfield, Delroy Lindo, and Deon Cole.


With numerous awards and recognition, Jay-Z has established himself as a prominent name in the global music landscape.

In 2019, he had become the first hip-hop artiste to attain billionaire status.

The rapper tied the knot with Beyoncé in 2008. The union has been blessed with three children — Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir.

Jay-Z had earlier said he and Beyoncé will not force their kids into show business.
