F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is back! But, in a music video and without the original cast. Rapper Jay-Z has released his very own version of beloved sitcom featuring an all black cast.

The brand new music video for Moonlight, which was exclusively unveiled on Tidal, also references the Best Picture error which rocked this year’s Academy Awards when La La Land was incorrectly named as the evening’s biggest winner instead of the song’s namesake, Barry Jenkins drama Moonlight.

The F.R.I.E.N.D.S. re-imagining was directed by Alan Yang - co-creator and star of Netflix series Master of None - and it features Jerrod Carmichael, Get Out star Lil Rel Howery and Issa Rae (US series Insecure) in the roles of Ross, Joey and Rachel.

Making up the rest of the collection is Emmy-nominated Atlanta star Lakeith Stanfield as Chandler, Tessa Thompson (Westworld, Thor Ragnarok) as Monica and Tiffany Haddish, who can currently be seen in new film Girls Trip, playing Phoebe.
