President of the United States Barack Obama is fighting for a second term in the White House, but luckily he's got celebrity star power to call on.
Jay-Z and Beyonce are hosting a lavish fundraising party for the President on Tuesday night in New York at the rapper's 40/40 Club.
While it will be an intimate shindig, it certainly won't be a toned down affair.
According to The New York Post, a ticket for the hottest event of the night is costing a staggering $40,000 (£24,000).
The 40/40 Club has undergone a $10million (£6million) renovation, with the main talking point a bespoke Armand de Brignac Gold Champagne Tower.
The club rep added: 'It’s floor-to-ceiling gold bottles in the entire space. It’s beautiful — breathtaking.'
It's believed it will be Obama's last stop in his New York campaign before November's election, and it's apt that he is spending time with the hip-hop couple.
Last month, he revealed that he's a huge fan of their music, and he regularly listens to them on his iPod.
He also added that he turns to a Beyonce track during his fitness sessions.
He told the hosts of Albuquerque’s KOB-FM: 'I will say right now that if I'm really trying to get my heart rate up, Crazy In Love is a pretty good song to work out to.'
