Following the release of the "Moonlight" music video on Friday, Jay Z dropped some behind-the-scenes visuals earlier today for the widely popular Friends remake starring an all-black cast. In case you missed it or couldn't find someone who would be kind enough to let you piggyback off their Tidal subscription, the Alan Yang-directed video features Jerrod Carmichael from The Carmichael Show playing Ross, Insecure creator and star Issa Rae as Rachel, Lil Rel Howery of Get Out as Joey, Atlanta's Lakeith Stanfield as Chandler, Tessa Thompson from Creed playing Monica, and Girls Trip breakout star Tiffany Haddish as Phoebe.
In the preview of the behind-the-scenes video, which you can check out below, we see Thompson discussing her understanding of the message that the "Moonlight" video is trying to get across. "We wanted to have a conversation about diversity and inclusion, which is something that is really ripe in the cultural conversation at this moment and I thought to be able to do it in an artful way, to be able to do it with such talented cohorts, and in a way that it's creative and open to interpretation could be so interesting," she said.
After giving us the long-awaited video for "Adnis" and following that up with "Footnotes of Adnis" with appearances by Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Will Smith, and more, Jay continues to show us that he's still got some tricks up his sleeve.
