JAY Z has done it yet again. The rapper just released yet another powerful visual for a track from his 4:44 album – this time hand-picking a star studded lineup of black actors and comedians for his song “Moonlight.”

The video is inspired by the popular TV sitcom Friends, which famously lacked diversity among their characters. To flip the concept on its ear, Hov decided to remake an all-black version of the show. Instead of using the classic “I’ll Be There For You” theme song from the original Friends, the cast bops along to “Friends” by Whodini.

The Carmichael Show’s Jerrod Carmichael plays Ross, and Creed’s Tessa Thompson and Girl’s Trip’s Tiffany Haddish roll on in as Phoebe and Monica.
