It’s no question that Jay Z‘s wife Beyoncé has a strong social media presence, so isn’t it about time the rapper followed suit?

Well, he just might have.

A new account, using the handle @Hovsince96, claims to belong to Jay Z, 45.

Started on Saturday, @Hovsince96 has shared one photo – and already has over 100,000 followers.

In the image, a much-younger Jay Z poses alongside the late Michael Jackson, who would have celebrated his 57th birthday on Saturday.

“Happy Birthday to the King,” the caption read, adding, “This may be my first and last post.”

The account has yet to be verified by Instagram – and a rep for the rapper did not immediately respond to a request for comment from PEOPLE – but there is one hint that it may really belong to Jay Z.

In an image shared by music executive Michael Kyser (a friend of the star), Jay Z appears to be looking at the photo sharing app on his phone.

“Follow my brother @Hovsince96 ASAP,” Kyser wrote, encouraging his followers to visit the account.

Only time will tell if Hov has really graced Instagram with his presence. If not, there’s always his Twitter.
