The video, for bonus cut "MaNyfaCedGod" featuring James Blake, was originally teased during the initial announcement of the project, and stars actress Lupita Nyong'o. The video ends with her reciting a line from the poet Rumi (who, probably not coincidentally, has the same name as Jay's newborn daughter): "Be grateful for whatever comes, because each has been sent from a guide from beyond."
Jay has released a number of videos for 4:44 tracks, including "Bam," "Adnis," "The Story of O.J.," "Kill Jay Z," and the album's title track. We talked to the "Moonlight" video director Alan Yang about how the project came together and how Jay Z was involved. Read that here.
