With excitement akin to the sighting of a bald eagle, the Ministry has stumbled upon rare video of power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce. At the same table. Sitting very close. Just like mortals do.

B and Jay are notoriously private when it comes to their marriage, quality time and, above all else, PDA. But the moguls aren’t sly enough to escape the magic found in a leaked 10-minute documentary about the making of Jay and Kanye West’s joint album ‘Watch the Throne.’


The clip below shows a heartfelt moment at a luxurious private estate in Australia, where West is presenting Jay with luxurious birthday gifts: framed artwork from their single ‘Monster’ and a major ring that Kanye hunted for in Paris that allows Jay to dip the bauble in hot wax and leave an insignia.

The gift giving is a fantastic look behind the curtain, but we’re taken with the sight of man and wife, nestled at a dinner table smiling over taper candles and an haute cuisine spread.

Start at 1:10 to see Beyonce coach her hubby on how to stamp his ring after it’s dipped in hot wax, and for sweet man-hugging between Jay and Kanye.
