Jay-Z recently kicked off his Magna Carta world tour in Manchester, England. Unfortunately, not everything went as smooth as he expected, as the rapper was caught messing up the lines of “No Church in the Wild”, a collaboration with Kanye West and Frank Ocean.
Jay-Z was performing the track, which is featured in his and West’s 2011 release “Watch the Throne”. It was all okay until he reached the lines that said, “Cocaine seats, all white like I got the whole thing bleached.” Jay-Z forgot the “cocaine seats” part and subsequently lost his rhythm.
He also skipped several lines. Everything’s back to normal when the hook, which is originally Ocean’s part, kicked in.
During that night’s show, Jay-Z performed about 30 songs, which were lifted from his records that included his latest one, “Magna Carta… Holy Grail”. The husband of singer Beyonce Knowles also delivered the first ever live performance of “Pound Cake”, his collaboration with Drake off the latter’s “Nothing Was the Same” album.
