Rapper Jay-Z just dropped the music video for his song “Moonlight,” off his latest album, 4:44 –and there’s some familiar-looking characters in it.
The video, directed by “Master of None” alum Alan Yang, reimagines the classic sitcom “Friends” with an entirely black cast.
The cast features Issa Rae (“Insecure”) as Rachel, Tiffany Haddish (“Girls Trip”) as Phoebe, Tessa Thompson (“Dear White People”) as Monica, Lil Rel Howery (“Get Out”) as Joey, Lakeith Stanfield (“Atlanta”) as Chandler and Jerrod Carmichael (“The Carmichael Show”) as Ross.
As to be expected, fans will have to float over to TIDAL to watch the video, but you can catch a clip here:

Jay-Z released “4:44” exclusively through the TIDAL streaming service on June 30.
The album went certified platinum in less than a week after its release. Tracks like “Smile” and “Kill Jay-Z” provide a vignette into the rapper’s personal life.
