Jay-Z is putting his money behind his politics. The Roc Nation head and his R&B superstar wife Beyonce is set to host a fundraiser for the POTUS at his 40/40 Club.

The exclusive fundraiser is set for September 18 and will cost $40,000 per ticket, according to the New York Post.  

The connection between President Obama and Jay-Z goes back to his first run for the Oval office and Jay-Z recorded get-out-the-vote phone messages. At the Made In America festval that took place on Labor Day weekend, President Obama was featured in a taped video during Jay-Z’s set.

Beyonce has also shown her public support for the President and the First Lady. Mrs. Obama recently closed her DNC speech with a tune from Beyonce. The Grammy-winning performer has appeared in an ad for the President’s re-election campaign and has trumpeted Michelle Obama’s childhood health initiative, “Let’s Move,” which fights childhood obesity and ensures that families can afford healthy, affordable food.—Keith Murphy, CBS Local
