Consider it a late Christmas present from Hova Claus. Jay-Z announced Monday (December 28) that the next video from The Blueprint 3 will premiere during “NBC’s New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly.”
The Brooklyn MC is set to debut a clip for “On to the Next One,” a futuristic number produced by Swizz Beatz. The video arrives on the heels of the Anthony Mandler-directed “Young Forever,” which hit the Internet last week. That video was serviced for overseas use only, according to a representative for Atlantic Records, which distributed the Roc Nation project.
The clip for “On to the Next One” will be the fifth from The Blueprint 3, following “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune),” “Run This Town,” “Empire State of Mind” and the aforementioned “Young Forever.”
Jay-Z will also appear on NBC’s New Year’s Eve special, alongside Rihanna. The two pre-taped performances of “Umbrella” and “Run This Town” a week ago in New York at Rockefeller Plaza during a snowstorm. In addition to Jay-Z and Rihanna, Green Day are also scheduled to appear on the Carson Daly-hosted celebration.
“The real star of any New Year’s Eve show is New York City, and Jay-Z is New York,” Daly said in a statement. “Green Day and Rihanna were already an impressive lineup, and now, with the addition of Jay-Z, it’s our most exciting lineup yet.”
