Jay-Z has defended his trip to Cuba with his wife Beyonce in a new song titled Open Letter.

Jay-Z released Open Letter after two US politicians asked about the famous couple’s visit to the island.

The government officials from Florida asked if Jay-Z and Beyonce’s visit was officially licensed.

US citizens are not allowed to travel to Cuba as tourists but can obtain licences for academic, religious, journalistic or cultural exchange trips.

On his new song, Jay-Z raps about his distaste for politicians and says: “Want to give me jail time and a fine, let me commit a real crime.”


Beyonce and Jay-Z are both supporters of President Barack Obama.

Jay-Z’s Open Letter raps: “Obama said, <<Chill, you gon’ get me impeached, you don’t need this (expletive) anyway, chill with me on the beach>>.”

“I done turned Havana into Atlanta… Boy from the hood, I got White House clearance.”

The White House said President Barack Obama did not personally approve Beyonce and Jay-Z’s trip to Cuba.

When asked about the lyrics, White House spokesman Jay Carney joked: “I guess nothing rhymes with treasury.”

“It’s a song. The president did not communicate with Jay-Z over this trip.”

US Treasury officials said Beyonce and Jay-Z’s trip to Cuba was licensed as a cultural exchange.
