It's well-known that neither Jay Z nor Beyoncé do film clips by halves and the latest production from the rapper is one of the best yet. Find out why below...

Jay Z released his latest album 4:44 earlier this year to rave reviews. Overnight, the American rapper debuted the film clip for his track Family Feud on Tidal and sent the world into a fist-pumping frenzy thanks to its stellar female cast. 

Beyoncé, who recently topped Instagram's most-liked pictures for 2017, and Blue Ivy are both featured in the eight minute clip alongside Mindy Kaling, Brie Larson, Rosario Dawson, Janet Mock, Jessica Chastain, Niecy Nash, Constance Wu, Thandie Newton, Rashida Jones and Susan Kelechi Watson.

The clip sees the women act as the Founding Mothers (as opposed to the Founding Fathers) and they are led by Watson as the President (who, as Bustle pointed out, is "Blue Ivy as the future President"). Directed by Ava DuVernay, it's a powerful display of female strength. Talking about her work, DuVernay tweeted, "The Founding Mothers. What else is there to say? I believe in our power. And I appreciate these dynamic artists who came out on a Saturday to represent all kinds of women at the table." 

You can view the film clip now on Tidal. Then, watch Dubai-based artist Layla Kardan's new film clip.
