Mark Zuckerberg Welcomes Jay-Z On Instagram

American billionaire rapper Jay-Z broke the internet on Tuesday when his verified profile surfaced on Instagram.

Naturally, in pure ‘Hot’ fashion, the Brooklyn native only honoured a single human being with a follow, his wife Beyonce Knowles-Carter.

In less than 24 hours, with only a single post and one Storey update, Jay-Z’s Instagram account surged with more than 1.4 million followers. At the moment — 2.3 million followers.

The owner of the platform, Mark Zuckerberg, made sure to honour Jay-Z’s membership with a wave emoji in the comments. Here’s is a list of celebrities and brands that fanned over Jay-Z joining Instagram:

Netflix (and all of their verified subsidiary accounts)
Jaden Smith
Adam Mosseri (Head of Instagram)
Thanasis Antetokounmpo
David Rothman
Over Time
The Score


It can be reasonably assumed that the account will not be managed by the 51-year-old. If anything, the sole purpose of the verified profile may have been to promote The Harder They Fall, a Sean Bullitts-directed western film that premiered on Netflix on Wednesday.
