Jay-Z Recreates 'Friends' with Some of Our Black Hollywood Faves for His 'Moonlight' Video

Jay-Z dropped the video for “Moonlight” from his ‘4:44’ album and it it’s definitely worth the watch.

In the clip, Jay recreates the iconic sitcom ‘Friends’ with all-Black actors.

It features Lil Rel Howery, Lakeith Stanfield, Jerrod Carmichael, Issa Rae, Tiffany Haddish and Tessa Thompson. Hannibal Buress also makes a guest appearance as himself halfway through the clip.

As the video wraps, audio from the 2017 Oscars Best Picture mix-up can be heard

“It’s like a subtle nod to ‘La La Land’ winning the Oscar, and then having to give it to ‘Moonlight,’ ” Jay-Z previously told iHeart Radio of the song’s message. “It’s really a commentary on the culture and where we’re going.”

We think the video absolutely nailed it.
