As Netflix’s upcoming all-Black Western The Harder They Fall starring Idris Elba, Regina King, Jonathan Majors, and more continues to premiere in different cities across the globe, one of the film’s notable co-producers, Jay-Z, shared a special moment on the red carpet in L.A. with longtime friend Kelly Rowland.

Netflix captured the exchange and shared it on social media.

“Obsessed with this super cute moment from last night’s special screening of The Harder They Fall — Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter (who is a producer) is headed inside but pulls a 180 as soon as he sees Kelly Rowland! That’s family right there,” the streamer tweeted.

The folks over at Netflix weren’t the only ones who loved the heartwarming moment shared by the two music legends. The video quickly went viral on social media, with many fans commenting on how nice it is to see Hov so laid back. At another point during the event, he joined a live band for what TMZ called “an apparently impromptu show.” Footage shows him spitting some of Watch the Throne’s “Gotta Have It,” as well as The Blueprint’s iconic “U Don’t Know”:

The all-time rap great has been making his rounds for various premieres for The Harder They Fall, answering some funny questions along the way. At the London Film Festival, Hov was asked if he could ride horses like the characters in the movie do, to which Jay replied, “I can ride a Porsche. It got horsepower.”

People on the internet, as they usually do, took the Rowland clip and turned it into various memes. Check out how fans are reacting to Jay and Kelly’s reunion below.
