American music icon Jay-Z has named the Premier League club that he supports.
Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Corey Carter is one of the most well-known musicians in the world and was declared the greatest rapper of all time by Billboard.
Aside from music, Jay-Z is often pictured at many sporting events having been seen at Superbowls, NBA games, the Wimbledon final and football matches.
Back in 2009, Jay-Z’s love for Arsenal was questioned after he was a guest of Manchester City when they beat the Gunners 4-2.
However, Jay-Z reaffirmed that he is an Arsenal fan during an interview with Arsenal Magazine.
As per NME, he said: “After that game the press started reporting that I was a Manchester City fan, I am really glad all that has been cleared up and that everybody in the UK knows that I am an Arsenal fan.
Jay-Z went on to explain that Thierry Henry was the reason he chose the Gunners.
He continued: “It was about five years ago now. When Thierry Henry was at the club I saw him play and I just thought he was an amazing player.
“Ever since then I have been a big fan of the club, following you guys, and still today you play the beautiful football that Thierry did. I think he had a real long term effect on the team.”
At the time, the rapper also hinted that he would be interested in investing in football in the future.
Jay-Z said: “I am a businessman, and I will always look at an opportunity, and if it feels right, great.
“I don’t know a lot about the business of soccer, but in the future if the right opportunity presented itself, then who knows?”
As an Arsenal fan, Jay-Z would have endured a roller coaster ride during the 22/23 season as the Gunners went chasing the Premier League title.
Despite leading for the majority of the campaign, Mikel Arteta’s men were eventually beaten to the crown by Pep Guardiola’s City.
