His Favorite Hue: A History of Jay-Z’s Obsession With the Color Blue

Jay-Z’s “Blue” Reference: He recorded “Girl’s Best Friend,” the first single from the Martin Lawrence movie, Blue Streak.

The Year: 1999

How It Showed His Love For His Favorite Color: Maybe this was purely coincidence. In fact, we’re pretty sure it was. But Jay had the lead single from a movie with “Blue” in the title in one of his first really big commercial looks. As a result, we hope he gave the producers a discount.
