Beyonce, Chris Brown, Cardi B and more turned out for Jay Z's annual star-studded event.
Tidal hosted their third annual charity concert last night (17th October) at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, and it was a truly star-studded event.
The 'Tidal X 2017' benefit, presented by Angie Martinez, featured an elite lineup of performers, with some of the biggest names in music hitting the stage.
Artists performing on the night included Tidal owner Jay Z, Chris Brown, Cardi B, Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, Vic Mensa, A$AP Rocky, Fifth Harmony and many more.
Despite not performing on the night, Beyonce managed to steal the show by turning heads on the red carpet in a stunning figure-hugging emerald dress.
The R&B songstress was spotted entering the venue alongside husband Jay.

Proceeds from the show, which was broadcast live online, are being donated towards the relief of those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, and Maria, as well as the earthquakes in Mexico.
Chris Brown graced the stage last night to perform some of his new songs, while Cardi B slayed her rendition of her chart-topping single 'Bodak Yellow'.
Jennifer Lopez took things to the next level after unleashing an epic medley which featured her hit song 'On The Floor'.

In addition, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo spoke in support of the benefit.
"After seeing the terrible devastation in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands firsthand, it is clear that those affected by these natural disasters need our help more than ever,"
He continued: "We in New York are putting the full weight of our resources behind recovery efforts, and I am grateful to TIDAL X: Brooklyn and its sponsors for joining us and helping to deliver much-needed goods to people in desperate need.”
