Jay-Z - Moonlight
This summer Jay-Z released a video to accompany his track "Moonlight", a parody not to be missed of the 90s sitcom Friends. Tessa Thompson (Westworld), Jerrod Carmichael of the Carmichael Show and Lil Rel Howery who starred in the feature film Get Out all play characters from the cult TV show in an Afro-American version. A dig on the artist’s behalf at the lack of black actors in American entertainment? From the album 4:44, this new track borrows its title from the Oscar-winning movie by Barry Jenkins Moonlight about an Afro-American gay man over three periods of his life. Just a month after the cartoon mockumentary "The Story of O.J" that paid tribute to the controversial O.J Simpson, Jay-Z has kept his promise to deliver a political album, in music as much as in image.
