The Video for Jay-Z’s ‘Moonlight,’ Which Re-creates Friends With an All-Black Cast, Is Finally on YouTube

By

After much anticipation, the music video for Jay-Z’s “Moonlight” from his recent 4:44 album just dropped on YouTube. Directed by Master of None co-creator Alan Yang (whom we had a chance to interview about this project), the music video is a re-creation of Friends with an all-black cast that turns into a contemplative meta-commentary on race representation in the industry. And while Tidal subscribers have already been able to enjoy this video, non-Tidal subscribers have only gotten to enjoy some GIFs up until now. Behold: a thoughtful parody in all its glory.
