Jay-Z Remakes ‘Friends’ With All-Black Cast For ‘Moonlight’ Music Video
Brooklyn’s hip-hop legend Jay-Z remakes one of the best shows in TV history, “Friends,” with an all-black cast for the “Moonlight” music video.
The seven minute video was directed by Alan Yang, who is the co-creator and star of Netflix series “Masters of None.” It featured Jerrod Carmichael (Ross), Lil Rel Howery (Joey), Issa Rae (Rachel), Lakeith Stanfield (Chandler), Tessa Thompson (Monica), and Tiffany Haddish (Phoebe). All these stars played the famous roles from “Friends” and included its iconic intro. The “Moonlight” track also in the video at the very end, referencing the Oscar’s mistake in “La La Land” winning Best Picture.
The video dropped last Friday at 4:44 pm and can currently be seen exclusively on Tidal. Yang expects the video to be released everywhere pretty soon.
