JAY-Z Recreates “Friends” For “Moonlight”

JAY-Z has dropped a new video for “Moonlight,” one of 10 tracks (or 13 when talking about the physical copy) from his celebrated 4:44 album.

Kicking off with a snippet of Whodini’s “Friends,” the star-studded affair is based on the long running sitcom, Friends. It finds appearances from Insecure actor Issa Rae, Get Out breakout star Lil Rel Howery, comedian Jerrod Carmichael, Atlanta‘s Lakeith Stanfield, Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish, Tessa Thompson and, last but not least, Hannibal Buress.

The song doesn’t start until the end of the visual, when Carmichael realizes all is not what it seems on the set of the show. He escapes out the side door, where he basks in the moonlight as audio of the infamous 2017 Oscar blunder brings the video to a close. (La La Land was announced as the winner for Best Picture by mistake, but it was actually the Barry Jenkins-directed Moonlight that won the honor.
