Benny Blanco reveals he accidentally kissed Beyoncé in front of Jay-Z

Benny Blanco revealed an incredible night playing music with Beyoncé and Jay-Z in the Hamptons quickly turned awkward.

The producer, known for hits including Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" and Rihanna's "Diamonds," recalled the evening on Apple Music's The Zane Lowe Show, 10 years later, Insider reports. Before he left the gathering, Blanco did the polite thing and said goodbye to Beyoncé, he said.

But when he leaned in to give her a kiss on the cheek, he said he "missed a little bit" and "hit the corner of some sort of lip," resulting in his life flashing before his eyes, because he knew Jay-Z was nearby. "I look at Jay and I'm like, 'Oh, OK. I'm dead. My life is over. It was great. Nice knowing you guys,'" Blanco said.

Luckily, no one noticed and he survived to tell the tale. However, Chance The Rapper isn't buying it.
