Jay-Z and Beyonce hyped up a Clinton rally while Trump threw shade


Hillary Clinton wants to be president. But she needed a little help from the Queen.

Jay-Z headlined the concert at a Friday rally in Columbus to get out the vote for Clinton, but Beyoncé, unsurprisingly, made an appearance.

Here's how the rally/concert looked. You'll notice the backup dancers are wearing pantsuits, an obvious homage to Clinton.

"I am so energized after this concert and I have to say: Didn't you love the pantsuits?" Clinton said afterward.

Of course, she performed "Formation."

And Jay-Z didn't disappoint either.

Beyoncé used a once-controversial Clinton quote as a rallying cry.

Look how far we've come from having no voice to being on the brink of history again. But we have to vote.

Other hip-hop stars showed up, including Big Sean, J. Cole and Chance the Rapper. Big Sean put his own spin on Clinton's slogan, saying: "We with her."

Beyoncé praised Clinton's unprecedented candidacy, saying she wanted to her daughter to "grow up seeing a woman lead this country."
