Jay Z has prompted musicians to turn their Twitter avatars and Instagram photos into a square of solid bright blue Sunday night — and it has nothing to do with Blue Ivy.

“Together, we can turn the tide and make music history,” Kanye West tweeted.

(function() { jQuery(document).ready(function ($) {
function setPinnionIframe(){
var el = $('#pinnion-5d6a38bcc551243fccbae78a795db750');
if(!el.attr('src')){
el.attr('src', 'http://time.pinnion.com/pepl/webWidget.php?id=12980&key=MzkxZGY3MTA1MWU5YmVhNGRhZmNjYjEyZTMyOWFkYjE.&al=1&qPos=101');
}
}
setPinnionIframe();
$(window).on('time-article-active', function () {
setPinnionIframe();
});
$(document).on('scroll mousewheel touchmove', 'div', function () {
setPinnionIframe();
});
}); })();
