Beyoncé and Jay-Z normally do nor air their dirty laundry to the public, but they decided to settle their personal issues with the help of their celebrity friends in the music video for "Family Feud."
The highly anticipated new song was finally released on Friday, Dec. 29, and it is about as glorious as everyone has imagined. The video was directed by Ava DuVernay, the genius behind the glass ceiling-breaking new movie A Wrinkle in Time. It stars Queen Bey, her daughter Blue Ivy, Michael B. Jordan, Thandie Newton, Rashida Jones, Rosario Dawson, Mindy Kaling, Constance Wu, Niecy Nash, Janet Mock, Susan Kelechi Watson, Omar Hardwick, Irene Bedard, David Oyelowo, Brie Larson, and Jessica Chastain.
The video was released exclusively through Tidal.
Beyoncé has one of the most loyal and most vocal fandoms in the music industry and, of course, when the video was released, Twitter was on an uproar. The Beehive was delighted by the movie quality of the music video that they hope it actually becomes a full-length feature.
"So Jay-Z and Ava are just going to tease me with this multi-cultural coalition of women," a Twitter user commented. "Did I see a grown Blue Ivy? Pope Beyoncé? Octavia Butler tea? I need some smelling salts. I DEMAND a movie!"
Others believe that Queen Bey and Jay-Z have given birth to the future President of the United States, Blue Ivy.

I want y'all to grasp what's in this pic. @S_C_ fantasizes his daughter as THE Foremother who brings together the founding mothers and rewrites our constitution. The way @ava captures that reveal is so beautiful. #FamilyFeud pic.twitter.com/QkhEt6Cnrv — D.K. Uzoukwu (@DKuzLA) December 29, 2017

It's crazy that Beyoncé isn't even my favorite part of the video. It's the idea of a future where legislation is created and formed by women of color, and trans women, and pregnant women, and older women, and younger women HAVING ALL OF THE SEATS. #FamilyFeudFilm pic.twitter.com/5VlWHAZ8ZX — Jasmyn Lawson (@JasmynBeKnowing) December 30, 2017
For his new album 4:44, Jay-Z has recruited the most popular and the most talented personalities in Hollywood like Lupita Nyong'O.
Drake And Lil Wayne Remix
On Friday, the two rappers also released their version of "Family Feud" from the Grammy Award-nominated new album 4:44.
In his verse, Drake raps about Donald Trump and Meek Mill, a fellow rapper he once had a conflict with. However, all seems to have been forgiven because Drake has joined the calls to free the "Young & Gettin' It" singer.
