The latest music video for a track off of the “4:44” album only features about a minute of rapping from Jay-Z.Released Friday on Tidal (and everywhere next week), the video for “Moonlight” features some of the biggest rising stars in comedy re-enacting, line-for-line, scenes from a quintessential “Friends” episode.Directed by “Master of None” co-creator Alan Yang, the video even features a remake of the opening to the NBC sitcom — but using the song “Friends” by Whodini.When the cast takes a break, Carmichael chats with comedian Hannibal Buress offstage, who tells him what they’re shooting is garbage and “it’s just episodes of ‘Seinfeld’ but with black people.”When Carmichael asks Buress what he’s up to these days, Buress says he just booked a part in “Pirates of the Caribbean Cruise Line” to play a parrot with a bad attitude but he has a heart of gold.Many viewed the popular NBC comedy as essentially a white version of Fox’s “Living Single,” which premiered a year before “Friends” and is also about six friends in New York City — who happened to be black.In the Jay-Z music video, the cast returns to the set and continues acting out scenes from “Friends,” but Carmichael is clearly shaken.The song then jumps from the intro chorus to the last verse, with Jay-Z rapping, Y’all n— still signin’ deals?
