The Sept. 14 launch of the new prime-time The Jay Leno Show will not only bring a leaner, meaner host – who recently dropped 12 lbs. – but a hip guest roster of Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West, NBC has announced.

The R&B trio – considered the top names in the genre – are scheduled to perform “Run This Town” from Jay-Z’s latest album, The Blueprint 3“].

For Rihanna, the appearance will mark one of her first major public performances since the February assault against her by her then-boyfriend, Chris Brown, whose sentencing has been rescheduled for Aug. 27.
