Jay-Z is planning to throw a BRIT Awards after-party in London, and is going to splash out half a million pounds for it.

According to The Sun the rapper is splashing out £500,000 on a bash for all his Roc Nation employees. Rita Ora, Beyonce and new label signing Kylie Minogue are likely to be in attendance.

Thousands of pounds of champagne and seafood has reportedly been shipped in for the party, and Jay-Z has apparently recruited the talents of Calvin Harris to DJ at the event, which is to be held at London's Hakkasan restaurant.

Justin Timberlake, who is performing at the awards ceremony, is playing a show at the Kentish Town Forum after his BRIT performance, but is likely to be at the Roc Nation party once he gets off stage.

JT will appear alongside Mumford & Sons, Muse, One Direction and Robbie Williams on the line up for the BRIT Awards show. It is thought that Beyonce is likely to put in an appearance as well, although it's still just a rumour at this point.

Last week saw the premier of the David Fincher directed video for Jay-Z's collaboration with Justin Timberlake, 'Suit & Tie'.

Timberlake has previously starred as Napster boss Sean Parker in Fincher's The Social Network.

We are still waiting to hear whether or not Jay-Z will be joining Timberlake on tour later this year.

James Corden will be hosting the show once again.
