Jay-Z has joined Instagram and made history in the process thanks to his wife Beyoncé.

The rapper and businessman made a profile on the social media platform on Tuesday (2 November) to promote The Harder They Fall, a new western film released on Netflix.

Jay-Z has produced the film, which stars Jonathan Majors, Idris Elba and Regina King.

Shortly after setting the account live, Jay-Z racked up 1.9 million followers, one of whom was singer Beyoncé, his wife of 13 years.

Proving it wasn’t an accident, Beyoncé also shared Jay-Z’s first ever Instagram story, which was a countdown to the film’s premiere.

However, fans were left confused after his account disappeared after just one day.

While the account existed, Jay-Z was the only person Beyoncé followed – and also the only person he followed.

His profile photo is a throwback photo to his younger days.

Jay-Z failed to meet David Attenborough’s record of the fastest person to reach one million followers, which he did in just four hours.

The previous record holder was Friends star Jennifer Aniston.
