Jay-Z’s second episode of his “Footnotes” video series finds him and a handful of other artists and celebrities speaking on relationships.

A number of people from the first “Footnotes” video make an appearance in this one as well, including Kendrick Lamar, Will Smith, Mahershala Ali, Chris Rock, Michael B. Jordan, and Jay-Z himself. The second video, which clocks in over 11 minutes, finds the men briefly speaking on romantic relationships and how that intersects with ideas of masculinity and the communities they were raised in. The video also includes appearances from Aziz Ansari and Jesse Williams.

Ultimately, the video concludes with Jay-Z discussing the album’s title track and sharing it with Beyoncé.

“Did you let your wife hear that early,” someone asks Jay-Z in regards to the song. “Yeah, I just played it,” the artist responded. “We’ve been in that space where we’ve got to a place where in order for this to work this can’t be fake. I’m not saying it wasn’t uncomfortable but because we’ve been doing it for so long it was less uncomfortable.”

On Monday, Jay-Z announced a tour in support of his recently-released 13th album. The 31-day tour begins on October 27 in Anaheim, California, and conclude on December 21 in Los Angeles, California.
