Jay-Z‘s getting pretty good at this rock n’ roll thing. Last week he closed out his Made In America festival by joining Pearl Jam for “99 Problems.” Sunday night (Sep. 9) at Olympic Stadium in London, he took the stage with Coldplay and Rihanna for the Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony. The three acts performed “Run This Town,” then Jay stuck around for a verse on Coldplay’s hit “Paradise.” Watch the video up top.Jay and RiRi seemed especially frisky on the militaristic stomp of “Run This Town,” with Chris Martin joining on backing vocals. The song transitioned seamlessly into “Paradise” with an unexpected verse from Hova, who eagerly thanked London at the end. During her own set, Rihanna performed “We Found Love,” which just won Video Of The Year at the MTV Video Music Awards.
