Jay-Z Debuts Star-Studded 'Family Feud' Video


Jay-Z premiered his much-awaited ‘Family Feud’ music video Friday on his Tidal music streaming service and it features Beyoncé along with daughter Blue Ivy.

Jessica Chastain, Michael B. Jordan, Thandie Newton, Brie Larson, Rashida Jones, Mindy Kaling, Rosario Dawson, Niecy Nash, and Susan Kelechi Watson are also among the star-studded cast of the Ava DuVernay directed video.


The nearly eight-minute film, begins 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 is all that they have.” The video then takes a historical trip in reverse, starting in 2444 and ending up in 2018 with Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy in church.

Jay-Z is also up for eight Grammy Awards, including Best Album (4:44), Song of the Year ("4:44") and Record of the Year ("The Story of O.J.").
