Yes Jay Z’s trending music video/film for his single “Moonlight” has been out for a while, but guess who don’t have TIDAL and won’t be getting it anytime soon. This girl! So now that the video is on VEVO I felt it was the perfect time to share it with you all if you haven’t seen the full project yet.

On “Moonlight” Jay Z raps about being stuck in a world where even if you win you lose noting the infamous 2017 Academy Award blunder where “La La Land” was announced as Best Picture, but “Moonlight” actually won. In the visual Jay took that message a bit further not so subtly taking a jab at the hit television series Friends, who many believe was a rip off of Living Single.

Issa Rae, Tessa Thompson, Tiffany Haddish, Lakeith Stanfield, Lil Rel, and Jerrod Carmichael star in the all black cast of a parody of Friends replicating the exact episode of “The One Where No One’s Ready” from season 3. Many loved the video and started campaigning for an all black Friends remake with those featured in the video. Some felt very moved by the idea behind the video and how black culture is always being ripped off with no proper credit, while others felt this was just another reason to make people mad for no reason. Of course I’m curious to know what you think.

Watch the music video for Jay Z’s “Moonlight” in the clip below. Do you agree with the message Jay is sending in this visual? Let’s continue the conversation in the comments.
