Jay-Z recalled the instance, as he said: "One night I ran into Bono and he told me he read an interview I'd done. The writer had asked me about a U2 record that had just been released and I said something about the pressure a group like that must be under just to meet their own standards.

"He said that the quote had really gotten to him and he decided to go back to the studio, even though the album was already done, and keep reworking it until he thought it was as good as it possibly could be."

The rapper, who is reportedly worth pver $400 million, also added: "I was suprised that at that point in his career he still got anxious about his work."
