Jay-Z remakes Friends with entirely black cast

Aletha Wilkinson

Jay-Z's dropped the latest video from his new album 4:44 this weekend and it's already blowing up the Internet.

While the entire video can only be seen on Jay-Z's own paid music platform, Tidal, he's released enough of it on social media to send fans into meltdown.

The video is a scene-by-scene recreation of a Friends episode, made with a black cast.

The only difference is the colour of everyone's skin. Just imagine if that wasn't even newsworthy.
