Jay Z has done it again! The rapper has managed to create a monumental music video that now has everyone talking.

Inspired by the 90’s sitcom, Friends, Hov and  director, Master of None co-creator Alan Yang, collaborated to remake the opening up the classic television series for Jay’s 4:44 track, “Moonlight.”

The full video, which was released exclusively on Tidal, showcases some of today’s Black rising stars reciting lines from the classic episode called, ‘The One Where No One’s Ready.’

In the clip, Jerrod Carmichael from The Carmichael Show plays Ross, Insecure’s Issa Rae plays Rachel, Lil Rel Howery of Get Out plays Joey, Atlanta’s Lakeith Stanfield plays Chandler, Tessa Thompson known for her role on Creed, plays Monica, and Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish plays Phoebe.

The cast literally is speaking lines verbatim, wearing almost the exact same clothing from the 90’s AND is on the exact same set. Also, instead of using the actual theme song, the rapper swapped it out for “Friends” by Whodini.

While the visual is not only entertaining and weirdly nostalgic, Jay made an appoint to showcase one of the most controversial entertainment stories of the year.

At the end of the Friends nod, you hear audio playing from the 2017 Academy Awards where La La Land was announced as Best Picture, but it was really Moonlight who won the  top honor. “It’s really a commentary on the culture and where we’re going,” Jay said during a radio interview.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

on

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
