After wrapping their “Legends of the Summer” tour earlier this month, Jay Z and Justin Timberlake go in search of the “Holy Grail” in their dark new video.
Director Anthony Mandler chops up the song to tell a cautionary tale of what happens when it all falls down. While they may appear to have everything, we see that their life is not as glamorous as it seems. Behind the bright lights and lavish lifestyle hides the dark side of fame.
The Timbaland-produced single, which is currently No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, is the second song off Magna Carta…Holy Grail to get a visual release following “Picasso Baby.”
“Holy Grail” also marks the first video by a major music star to get its premiere on Facebook.
Watch it all go up in flames.
