Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and Jay-Z are apparently friendly again after that recent controversy over the Made in America festival.

They took a picture together Monday night during a brief meeting before Jay-Z performed at Lincoln Financial Field.

"Really enjoyed meeting Jay-Z tonight. We're both very excited about the future of @MIAFestival here in Philly," Kenney tweeted.


Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce hit the stage at the Linc for their much anticipated On the Run concert.

Just last week, Mayor Kenney announced that Jay-Z's Made in America festival will remain on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, after earlier saying it needed to move.
