JAY-Z Premieres ‘MaNyfaCedGod’ Video Starring Lupita Nyong’o
Following his “Moonlight” video where he reimagines an episode Friends, JAY-Z returns with a moving visual for “MaNyfaCedGod,” a bonus track from his critically acclaimed album, 4:44.
Much like his previously-released “Adnis” clip, the black-and-white short film features Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o dancing throughout before displaying her emotions with tears and anger. In several flashback scenes, we see her in happier moments with her lover before fading into darkness and Lupita erupting in anger.
The video matches Hov’s personal lyrics about his relationship with his wife, Beyonce. Be grateful for whatever comes,” Lupita states at the end the video. “Each has been sent from a guide from beyond.”
“MaNyfaCedGod” is one three bonus tracks from the physical copies 4:44, including “Adnis” and “Blue’s Freestyle / We Family.” The songs are exclusively streaming on Tidal. Hopefully, JAY-Z will release the extra tunes on other digital services like Apple Music.
In the meantime, you can view JAY-Z’s “MaNyfaCedGod” video exclusively at Tidal.
