JAY-Z surprised fans with a trio of gifts on Black Friday, sharing three new videos from his 4:44 album.
Visuals for “Legacy,” “Smile” and “Marcy Me” were released on his streaming service Tidal, of course.
The video for 4:44’s closing track, “Legacy,” stars Susan Sarandon, Ron Perlman, Jesse Williams, Emile Hirsch and more. It examines the criminal justice system – a hot topic Jay continues to speak about. He recently wrote an op-ed in the New York Times condemning the treatment of his friend and Roc Nation signee Meek Mill. “Probation is a trap and we must fight for Meek and everyone else unjustly sent to prison,” he wrote.
The “Smile” video features Jay’s mother, Gloria Carter, playing herself, with flashbacks of her as a young woman and mother, while “Marcy Me” shows a police helicopter chase.
The three new clips from 4:44 join the already released “MaNyfaCedGod,” “Moonlight,” “Adnis,” “Kill Jay Z,” “BAM,” “The Story of O.J.” and the title track.
So for all you Jay-Z fans looking to get a glimpse of his latest videos, go get a Tidal subscription.
