We are crazy in love with this adorable moment!
At the premiere of the Western film The Harder They Fall in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Oct. 13, co-producer Jay-Z had the sweetest reaction to seeing longtime family friend Kelly Rowland, his wife Beyoncé‘s longtime Destiny’s Child band mate.
Distributor Netflix tweeted out a video of the rapper looking surprised and thrilled to see Kelly, who gives him a big smile and hug.
“Obsessed with this super cute moment from last night’s special screening of The Harder They Fall,” read Netflix’s caption. The platform noted that Jay-Z was “headed inside but pulls a 180 as soon as he sees Kelly Rowland! That’s family right there.”
Kelly, who wore a red feathered belted gown, attended the event with husband Tim Weatherspoon. Beyoncé was not seen in Netflix’s video but she reportedly accompanied Jay-Z and shared Instagram pics of herself wearing a plunging black and emerald green Alexander Vauthier gown.
The star also joined her husband at the London premiere of The Harder They Fall earlier this month. While she shied away from the press cameras, she later released photos of herself at the event on Instagram.
Rowland is so close with Beyoncé and fellow Destiny’s Child Michelle Williams that when she gave birth to her second child, son Noah Jon, in January, she allowed the two, her “sisters,” to watch the beautiful moment online.
“We had our family join on Zoom,” she told People. “They were able to see Noah come into the world. It was beautiful.”

The Harder They Fall is not the first film Jay-Z has co-produced. He was also a producer on The Great Gatsby, Top Five and the 2014 remake of Annie.
