Jay-Z went on to speculate that he might actually really move to Columbia. "But I've learned to its leave the possibility open," he continued. "Sometimes rumors spark real things."

According to Billboard.com, the rapper-turned-exec is currently working on several remixes including Amy Winehouse's "You Know I'm No Good". When asked what's his favorite songs right now Jay-Z pointed to those by his label mates. "Ne-Yo, Rihanna, Fabolous," he said with a laugh.
