Jay-Z dropped his music video for "Moonlight" on Tidal yesterday (August 4).
Taken from his "4:44" album, the video is a remake of the popular '90s sitcom, Friends, only this time it stars an all-black cast of well-known faces.
Starring in the video are Broad City‘s Hannibal Buress, Get Out‘s Lil Rel Howery and Atlanta‘s Lakeith Stanfield. Issa Rae plays Rachel, Tiffany Haddish plays Phoebe and Tessa Thompson plays Monica.
In the Alan Young directed video, we see the original theme song "I'll be There For You," by The Rembrandts, replaced with Whodini's "Friends".
The cast act out a few scenes from the seminal Friends episode “The One Where No One’s Ready,” saying the exact same lines as the original actors.
