JAY-Z has released yet another video accompaniment to a song from last year's 4:44 LP. This time, it's an animated clip for "Blue's Freestyle," celebrating his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's sixth birthday. In the cute, bright clip, we witness a school talent show with JAY-Z and Beyoncé beaming from the audience and the infant Carter twins in their stroller nearby. Blue's supposed to do a dainty ballet performance but she's too cool for that, so she drops into a freestyle instead.

All but one song from 4:44 now has a video to go alongside it, and it's only a matter of time before the Frank Ocean-featuring "Caught in Their Eyes" gets a clip too. So far, we've seen all-star casts, 10-minute-long short films, and powerful doses of creative criticism, all expertly directed and beautifully shot.

Watch the video for "Blue's Freestyle" over at Tidal.
