Hillary Clinton has just over two weeks to go before she faces her foe, Donald Trump, at the polls to become the next President of the United States. In order to snag the all-important Black vote, the Clinton campaign reportedly will host an upcoming Jay Z concert.

Buzzfeed reports that an upcoming “Get Out The Vote”concert would be held in the battleground state of Ohio. According to a Clinton staffer, the show will take place in Cleveland. The move is part of a campaign strategy that will hopefully get Black voters to rally around the former Secretary of State. In polls, Clinton’s numbers reflect a growing disinterest in support for her campaign coupled with mistrust.

Jay Z, while not a political firebrand, has shown support for several issues that concern young voters, voters of color, and those on the Left. With the Black vote, Clinton could all but claim victory from the onset as voters of color largely stood away from the controversial Trump. The Brooklyn MC is no stranger to performing for politicians. In 2012, he performed in Ohio alongside Bruce Springsteen during President Obama’s reelection bid.

The date for the concert has yet to be released.
