Jay Z's fiery new video for 'Holy Grail' with Justin Timberlake: Watch
Jay Z’s intense video for “Holy Grail,” Justin Timberlake, bowed today on Facebook.
The top 10 track, which extrapolates Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” is a study on fame and how corrosive and addictive it can be.
The best scene of the video is Justin TImberlake’s interlude, which features him walking among sheet-covered furniture composed of moving dancers.
While it’s a little hard for us common folks to sympathize with Jay Z’s complaints about fame (and even he tells himself to get off his “high horse”), the Anthony Mandler-directed clip is a visual feast that ends in upsetting crash, symbolic of the fickleness of fame.
