Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake Release Dark ‘Holy Grail’ Video


Jay-Z has been doing things differently for his Magna Carta Holy Grail album.

First, he released it exclusively to Samsung users in July, and now on Thursday, he premiered the video for its first single, “Holy Grail,” on Facebook.

In the “visual,” as he calls it, the rapper sits in a dark room with bullet holes letting the only light in though the walls, as he watches a Mike Tyson fight on television (which is referenced in the song’s lyrics).

Justin Timberlake, who sings the chorus of “Holly Grail,” is also in the video, although not with Jay-Z. In his scene, he sings in a dark room only occupied by women dancing under white sheets, and then later next to a car that’s on fire.

What do you think of it?
