Jay Z has enlisted Beyoncé, Prince, Nicki Minaj, Damien Marley, Usher, Lil Wayne and T.I. to perform on October 20 in Brooklyn at an event titled, “TIDAL X: 1020”.

The Roc Nation mogul announced earlier this week that one million people have signed up to use his celebrity owned streaming service and the concert will commemorate that achievement. Just for reference, Spotify has over 40 million subscribers, 10 million of which pay for their music streaming … but who’s counting?  “TIDAL X: 1020” will also raise money for the New World Foundation charity so there’s that.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 2, at 12 p.m. ET for the general public and will be live-streamed on TIDAL.

Jigga has dealt with a fair share of public backlash over his handling of the streaming service. That criticism was birthed after the rapper appeared at a press conference with a dozen other wealthy musicians who complained in unison about their pockets being hurt by streaming services such as Pandora or Spotify. Their suggestion was for fans to pay double the price of the competitions’ subscriptions services to ensure musicians were making even more money off of their music.

While many understood the sentiment, Jay’s approach left many feeling like he and his rich friends were out of touch with their fan base.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
