Watch Jay-Z's Chaotic and Beautiful "4:44" Short Film
The 4:44 videos are coming in quick
A week with Jay-Z‘s new album and it already appears to be his most visually-focused piece to date. Last week, the release of 4:44 came paired with an animated visual of the album track “The Story of O.J.,” which has since received its own set of liner notes, directed by Neal Brennan and starring Van Jones,, Chris Rock, Michael Che, Kendrick Lamar and more.
Today, at precisely 4:44pm, a chaotic and beautiful short film arrived for the album’s title track, comprising viral clips, interviews and performances with artists ranging from Jean-Michel Basquiat to Al Green. It’s available to see via TIDAL up above.

With three shows on the books — Made In America, Meadows Music and Arts Festival and V Festival in the UK — a rumored tour in support of the new album, and more visual accompaniments on the way, there’s still plenty to anticipate from the pride of Marcy his all-grown-up album. Stay tuned for the next transmission.
