JAY-Z‘s coveted Roc Nation Brunch, which has become an annual Grammy weekend tradition, is reportedly off the table this year, leading to speculation as to what the label may be up to.

A source close to the Hip Hop billionaire confirmed the cancelation to Page Sixon Friday (February 2), The Roc Nation Brunch kicked off in 2011, taking two years off in 2021 and 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and returned after that hiatus in 2023.

No further details have been given about the cancelation, which has led to speculation that Hova’s wife, Beyoncé, will be performing at the Grammys on Sunday (February 4).

While that has not been confirmed or denied, a source close to the couple did confirm that the pair will be appearing at Clive Davis’s Grammy party on Saturday (February 3) instead. Rumors of a Roc Nation party were also floating around industry circles on Friday.

The power couple were joined by a bevy of friends, family, colleagues, and proteges at a private residence in the hills above Los Angeles after Roc Nation invited industry insiders to “join us for a celebration of the highest elevation of self.

As fans walked up to the venue, they were welcomed by a small orchestra positioned along a pathway leading up to an uncovered rotunda area. The walls of the roofless foyer were decorated with photos from previous Roc Nation Brunches, including a portrait of Lauren London and Nipsey Hussle captured weeks before his death in 2019.

Just like previous iterations of the exclusive affair, guests seem to have been encouraged to keep to specific colors when it came to their outfits, with shades of pink, white, green, and gray seen on most of the guests. Beyoncé donned a futuristic white outfit reminiscent of the style aesthetic she’s used to promote her seventh studio album Renaissance.

Unlike in years past, JAY-Z and Beyoncé were not photographed together and seemed to arrive at the event separately. In one video that surfaced online, Hov is seen walking up to the tented outdoor venue with renowned stylist June Ambrose before pausing to wave off a photographer.

Bey, on the other hand, was videoed entering the venue with her longtime bodyguard Julius de Boer, sharing a moment with Lil Kim before joining her husband at their table, where they greeted many guests together, including Afrobeats star TEMS.
