On Thursday night, a slew of people gathered in MetLife Stadium to take in the colossal force that is The Carters, JAY-Z and Beyoncé, for the soldout-tristate stop of their OTR II tour. The singer’s athletic brand, IVY Park, was on hand with a group of influencers including Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson, rapper Cakes Da Killa and artist Anajah Hamilton.
For every show on the tour, there will be limited edition IVY PARK x OTR II sweatshirts that say “XX is my park” with ‘XX’ referring to the city of the concert. The shirts are only available for purchase at the concert. Be sure to go check out hip-hop’s first couple in a city near you to pick one up and hashtag #WeAreIVYPark or #XXIsMyPark for your respective city.
Earlier this year, IVY Park and Beyoncé helped to empower young female figure skaters through the organization Figure Skating in Harlem.
