Tidal, the streaming service owned by rap mogul Jay-Z, on Wednesday announced that Jay-Z and pop superstar Jennifer Lopez will headline a concert to raise funds for survivors of the devastating hurricanes. 

Jay-Z's wife Beyonce who was supposed to headline the concert with him will be pulling out because of giving birth to twins recently. 

It was announced on Wednesday that the show, taking place on October 17 in Brooklyn's Barclays Center arena, will see the coming together of several artists for raising aid relief. The artists include DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, Cardi B-- who recently gained a No 1 spot on Billboard with her single "Bodak Yellow", Daddy Yankee, Fifth Harmony, Joey Bada$$, Iggy Azalea, Vic Mensa, among several others.
