Tom Brady Says He Picked ‘Public Service Announcement’ as Walkout Song Because ‘I’m a Big Fan of’ Jay Z


Jan 1, 2014

Tom BradyFOXBORO, Mass. — For years now, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has jogged onto the Gillette Stadium field for warmups to Jay Z‘s “Public Service Announcement.”

Some have wondered whether Brady picked his walkout music, or whether the stadium DJ started playing the song for the quarterback, and it became a tradition.

Brady confirmed Wednesday that he picked his entrance music.

“That’s been my choice for a long time,” Brady said.

Every home game, as players start taking the field, Jay Z’s lyrics, “Allow me to re-introduce myself, my name is Hov'” blare out of the stadium’s PA as Brady and his backup quarterback come out from the locker room and onto the field in full uniform.

“I’m a big fan of his,” Brady said of Jay Z, explaining why he picked the song from The Black Album, which came out in 2003.

Now that’s settled.
