The most talked about track off “4:44” gets a star-studded visual.
Ever since the teaser for the video came out yesterday, fans have been waiting in anticipation for the full video to be released and finally Jay-Z has done just that. He just dropped the visual featuring his wife, Beyonce and daughter, Blue this afternoon which also stars Michael B. Jordan, Omari Hardwick, Thandie Newton, Rosario Dawson, and many more.
Directed by Ava DuVernay, the video opens up with a quote from James Baldwin. “The wretched of the earth do not decide to become extinct, they resolve, on the contrary, to multiply: life is their weapon against life, life all that they have.” The visual is set up more like a short film rather than a music video where Jay-Z shows “nobody wins when the family feuds.” The intimate video gave the couple a chance to address their infidelity issues on camera within a church confessional setting.
Tidal subscribers can watch the full video now, but others can watch a brief clip of the “Family Feud” visual below.
