2017-07-14 10:50

Cape Town – JAY-Z released the video for the title track of his new album via YouTube on Thursday.

The 8-minute long video for 4:44 comes as the second clip off his new album, following The Story of O.J. which was released a week ago.

Featuring contrasting images, the collage-like video opens with footage shot on a cellphone of a boy singing Nina Simone's cover of Feeling Good.

It then cuts to a clip of All by Myself: The Eartha Kitt Story, where the singer talks about love which is followed by footage of riots, street dancers, viral footage and live footage of Jay-Z and Beyoncé performing Drunk in Love together.

JAY-Z released 4:44 on 30 June, and has revealed that the title track is about his marriage to Beyoncé.

The video, like the album, comments on the black experience in America.
