Jay-Z has released the music video for his James Blake collaboration “MaNyfaCedGod” from his new album 4:44. The black-and-white visual stars Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, who dances throughout the emotional clip, before breaking down in tears triggered by joyful memories of the past with her lover.
As the video progresses, Lupita’s rage continues to build until she finds herself on the ground surrounded by white walls as she fights to move forward with grace. Eventually, she starts running and then she jumps in the arms of her man.
Check out a preview of the intense visuals below.
