Jay-Z and Rihanna Launch ‘Made for Music’ Campaign

Subscribe to on

It doesn’t stop for Jay-Z. After giving us the album of the summer with ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail,’ he’s now creating a global advertising campaign with pop sensation Rihanna.

Hov and RiRi have teamed up with Budweiser to launch the “Made for Music” campaign. The initiative will celebrate artists and other creatives who are leaving a mark in pop culture.

The effort will include television spots called “Dreams are Made” featuring Jay-Z and Rihanna. The first two commercials feature Jay’s classic anthem ‘PSA’ and Rihanna’s new single, ‘Right Now.’ Both ads highlight the ethos of hard work: “It begins and ends with what you make.”

The partnership also marks the first time the beer brand has coordinated an international push involving music with two global acts. Plus, Budweiser will support both Jay-Z and Rihanna’s upcoming tours.

The brand’s new music website,, will be the official hub to get exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the making of “Dreams are Made” along with artists interviews. More music packages and goodies will be announced later.

The Made for Music campaign will also get involved in helping concertgoers enjoy their experience at the 2013 Budweiser Made in America festival, which is happening in Philadelphia this Labor Day Weekend (Aug. 31 and Sept. 1).

Headlining the two-day event are Beyonce, her sister Solange, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, 2 Chainz, Miguel, Public Enemy, A$AP Rocky and many more.

Jay-Z is not scheduled to perform at the festival, but his ‘Magna Carta’ album is so great, there’s no way he’s not going to give the fans a quick set of his biggest hits. C’mon Hov, don’t let us down!

Jay-Z and Budweiser have been making beautiful music together lately. Not only is the beer brand sponsoring the Made in America festival, they are also backing the Legends of the Summer tour with Justin Timberlake. JT and Jay’s trek kicks off July 17 in Ontario.
