JAY-Z's All-Encompassing "4:44" Video Is Here

Jay's most emotional track on '4:44' gets a complex eight-minute video.

The title track of JAY-Z's new 4:44 album is the explainer fans have been waiting on for over a year. On it, Jay explicitly goes over his infidelity in his marriage to Beyoncé and how it's taken a toll on their family. Today, the song got an equally complex and emotional video, which is exclusively on Tidal right now. The eight-minute clip, which is directed by Elissa Blount-Moorhead, Arthur Jafa, and Malik Sayeed, is a collage of footage of Jay and Bey performing together, a young boy singing Nina Simone's "Feeling Good," footage from the 1983 Eartha Kitt documentary All by Myself: The Eartha Kitt Story, and a couple dancing in a field. Much like his video for album track "The Story of O.J.," there's a lot to unpack here. Watch the video below, exclusively on Tidal.
