Jay-Z has invited President Obama to perform at the Philadelphia Music Festival which the rapper is organising for the Labor Day weekend in September.

The ‘Excuse Me Miss’ star has promised to try to get the President, who has previously shown off his vocal abilities with a rendition of Al Green down to the two-day 'Budweiser Made In America' music festival which kicks off on the 1st September.

“I'm gonna try. I'm gonna tell you guys right now: I'm gonna give him a call and I'm gonna try to get him to perform,” he told Rolling Stone Magazine, “do a little rendition of Al Green” he joked.

The 42 year-old maybe one of the biggest stars on the planet and a personal friend of the man in the White House but even he was doubtful about his abilities to get him on stage.

“I think that opens up the political season.” He admitted.

“He'll be so far into helping the world that he probably won't have time, but I'm absolutely going to ask him.”

One person that the rapper is confident about getting to perform is his wife Beyoncé although he confessed that with her hectic work schedule he had to make sure he had enough time in advance to book the ‘Love On Top’ singer.

“I tried to put it far enough away that she'd have a little gap in her schedule, so hopefully that works.” He joked.

As well as a possible line-up of Obama and Beyonce there will another 29 acts to play across the weekend and Jay revealed has already booked the head line act for the first night – himself!
