Jay's done it again... he took over the Barclays Center, New Year's Eve. Bringing in the New Year with Coldplay and a soldout arena. Billboard reports that Jay took the stage at 11:59 PM, ringing in the New Year with Chris Martin, singing "Auld Lang Syne." Love that Brooklyn Boy! Then it was Hov's House (Coldplay's set was first):
"I don't know how I'm going to top 2012," Jay said, looking like he wasn't worried a bit and biting into "On to the Next One" as arms waved and yet another cheer went up. As "Hovi Baby," "Feelin' It," "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It To Me)," and especially "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)" sped by, Jay rapped without seeming to take a breath, to barely stop, and making it all look easy, inspiring applause for every break when the music stopped and it was just his voice issuing a torrent of rhymes filling the whole arena alone."I want to thank you. You could have been anywhere in the world tonight. but you're here in the m***fu**kin' Barclays Center," he said. (Source: Billboard)
