President Obama sends a video message during Songwriters Hall ceremony in which he implied Jay-Z and Beyonce are expecting two more daughters.
The two-minute video sees Obama list the similarities before saying: ‘Jay and I are also fools for our daughters. Although, he’s going to have me beat once those twins show up.’
Since Obama has two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and Jay already has one, Blue Ivy with wife Beyonce, the comment implies that the only way the rapper could get him ‘beat’ is if he had twin girls.
Obama’s video sparked a Twitter frenzy on Thursday night, with one posting: ‘So Beyoncé is having twin girls. Only way Jay would have Obama “beat” once they arrive. He’s gonna be in trouble for spilling the beans.’
In the special video recording, Obama likened himself to the Brooklyn-born musician, jokingly saying: “Let’s face it – we both have wives who are significantly more popular than we are.”
He added: “I like to think Mr. Carter and I understand each other. Nobody who met us as younger men would have expected us to be where we are today.
“We know what it’s like not to have a father around. We know what it’s like not to come from much. And to know people who didn’t get the same breaks that we did.
“And so we try to prop open those doors of opportunity so that it’s a little easier for who come up behind us as well.”
