Beyonce & Jay-Z's Trip Okd by US; Roc Nation Partners with Universal Music

All they wanted to do was go on a nice get away to celebrate their anniversary, but Beyonce and Jay-Z didn’t know how much controversy their trip would stir up.
Married for five years, the musical couple spent last week relaxing and sight-seeing, in Havanna, Cuba, a location off limits to most Americans since the 1960’s.
As it turned out, the expedition, which caused politicians to demand the purpose of the lovebirds stay in the tropical country, was approved by the United States government.
According to TMZ on Monday (April 8), the trip got the go-ahead from the U.S. Treasury Department and was deemed a fully licensed “cultural” trip.
In professional news, it seems as though Jay-Z’s entertainment company Roc Nation is partnering up with Universal Music Group and will operate as an independent label within the larger group.
A statement released by the mogul said, "This agreement presents a unique opportunity for Roc Nation's artists — being able to continue to operate as an independent label with the strength, power and reach of the best major. I look forward to a long and prosperous collaboration with UMG. It feels good to be home.”
