JAY-Z's 4:44 only continues to grow as an immersive art experience. Following the video for "Moonlight," the rapper has now shared a video for bonus track "MaNyfaCedGod" starring the incomparable Lupita Nyong'o, who gives the song's bare-faced honesty a virtuosic performance to match.
"Look at all we been through since last August / skatin' through the rumors like 'ah shit!'" Jay raps, breaking down the haul from his and Beyoncé's On the Run tour and musing on what would have been lost in a divorce. Featuring James Blake's pensive singing, the song is a tender addition to the 4:44 story. The video, in stripped down black and white, remains focused on Nyong'o, and at the end, she delivers the briefest of monologues, stating, "Be grateful for whatever comes because each has been sent from a guide from beyond." Watch the video via TIDAL below.
