As reported by Us Weekly, the royal music couple are coming together for a special show in Brooklyn for those affected by the said storms. The show, scheduled to take place at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on October 17, happens to fall around the time Tidal traditionally hosts its TIDAL X benefit show.

In a statement following the report of Bey and Jay's potential headlining show, a Tidal rep said the following:

"TIDAL will be hosting our annual benefit concert with details to soon follow. We have not announced or confirmed any line up or partner organizations, but stay tuned."

Beyoncé has been a part of the recent hurricane relief efforts in recent weeks. She recently participated in the Hand in Hand telethon. "The effects of climate change are playing out around the world everyday," she said in a pre-recorded message during last week's telethon, which happened to raise more than $55 million. "Just this past week, we've seen devastation from the monsoon in India, an 8.1 magnitude earthquake in Mexico and multiple catastrophic hurricanes. Irma alone has left a trail of death and destruction from the Caribbean to Florida to the Southern United States. We have to be prepared for what comes next."

Expect an official announcement from Tidal, along with the full lineup.
