Rap superstar Jay-Z refused to put his recording commitments on hold following his wedding to longtime beau Beyonce Knowles - he headed straight back into the studio less than 24 hours after exchanging vows.
The rapper - real name Shawn Carter - wed Knowles in a low-key ceremony on April 4, during a brief break between concert dates for his Heart of the City tour with hip-hop/soul queen Mary J Blige.
Producer Jermaine Dupri insists Jay-Z's work regime has not changed since marrying the 'Crazy In Love' star - instead of enjoying some time off with his new wife, he returned to the recording booth on April 5.
He tells Usmangazine.com, "We were in the studio the day after the wedding doing a record for Usher's album.
"(He's) doing great - it's the same as he always is."
Dupri admits he did not probe his pal about how married life is treating him.
"We don't talk about that kind of stuff," he said. "We talk about work."
The couple is reportedly set to take their honeymoon later this year at a luxury hotel on the Caribbean island of Anguilla.
