Jay-Z may have a plethora of fans across the globe but he himself is a fan of one special lady: his wife, Beyonce.

Earlier this week the Brooklyn rap star joined the former Destiny’s Child frontwoman at the ‘American Idol’ Season 10 finale, where she debuted ‘1+1,’ a ballad off her forthcoming solo album, ‘4.’ Before B hit the stage to perform for viewers at home and those in the audience, she flexed her vocal chops in her dressing room, all while her husband caught everything on camera.

Hov filmed Beyonce as she ran through the lyrics of her new song, accompanied by a woman playing a keyboard to back her up. In the room were her mother, Tina Knowles and her nephew, Daniel Julez, seated on a black leather sofa. Jay-Z placed the visuals he captured on his new Life + Times website, where he wrote a touching sentiment about his lady love.

“Sometimes you need perspective. You’ve been right in front of greatness so often that you need to step back and see it again for the first time. This is the dressing room rehearsal for American Idol. NO MICROPHONE. No effects [sic],” he wrote.

Without fancy equipment to enhance her voice, the video proves Beyonce’s talents are surely innate.
