Watch JAY-Z’s Videos for ‘Marcy Me,’ ‘Legacy’ and ‘Smile’ on YouTube
JAY-Z's videos for "Marcy Me," "Legacy" and "Smile" have ended their exclusive run on Tidal and are now available for viewing on YouTube.
The videos are all cinematic, falling in line with the other visuals Jay has released from his Grammy-nominated album, 4:44. Several big names show up in the videos, including Susan Sarandon, Jesse Williams, Ron Pearlman and Aldis Hodge in "Legacy." It’s directed by Jeymes Samuel and ponders the legitimacy of the criminal justice system while simultaneously telling the story of a prison break.
"Marcy Me" shows cops in a helicopter looking for a "young black man in a hoodie"—interrupting the innocence of a young black boy who's just buying groceries for a neighborhood rooftop cookout.
As for "Smile," which features Jay's mom, Gloria Carter, who came out on the track, it features her reading the outro to the track.
Speaking of family, Jay and Bey were recently spotted on Tina Lawson's Instagram partaking in the electric slide in a since-deleted post, proving it doesn't matter how many billions you have—everyone loves to party to Maze.
Anyway, you can check out Jay's videos above and below.
