Wired: Jay-Z’s secret B-day plans revealed and Rita Ora set to WOW Brits on this date
The Bootylicious one turns 36 on September 4 and Jay wants to treat her, elder daughter Blue Ivy and the couple’s new twins to another cruise around the Mediterranean.
A source said: “It will be the couple’s first holiday since Bey had the twins and it’s also her birthday, so the timing couldn’t have been better.
“Jay-Z is not cutting corners when it comes to luxury, he’s hiring out a yacht with their own private chef too, to cook some of the couple’s favourite vegan dishes. They adore Europe and when they disembark they’ll enjoy bike rides to take in the local culture.”

The pair enjoyed a similar yachting adventure last year, when twins Rumi and Sir Carter were twinkles in Jay’s eyes. After headlining V Festival – where the rapper checked out Stormzy and Rihanna watched from backstage – Jay-Z has a busy winter of touring ahead of him.
He’s squeezing in the birthday cruise around his Made In America festival on September 2 and 3, a day before Beyoncé’s big day.
The source added: “Kelly Rowland, Solange and Bey’s mother Tina Knowles have also been invited to join the intimate party.”
