The cognac was plentiful and flowing at the Hennessy Black Launch Event on Tuesday, May 5 in New York. The company wanted to do it big for the release of a smoother, lighter version of their famous beverage.
At the party, Ciara and Kim Kardashian did the friend-pic pose while Swizz Beatz performed his single, "When I Step In The Club," live for the first time. He was joined on-stage by top dance crew, the JabboWockeeZ.
Other attendees included Idris Elba, Joy Bryant, Fabolous, Adrienne Bailon and Melyssa Ford.
