New Video: Jay Z featuring Beyonce - 'Family Feud'

Jay Z and Beyonce are back together in video once again.

The superstar couple have appeared on the rapper's latest music video for the single, 'Family Feud' from his critically acclaimed album, '4:44.'

Like most of his previous singles from the album, the song has premiered on his co-owned streaming entity, 'Tidal', but some of the snippets have made their way to YouTube.

Apart from the 'Single Ladies' songstress, the video also stars Michael B. Jordan, Omari Hardwick, Mindy Kaling, Janet Mock and Jay and Bey's 5 year old daughter, Blue Ivy. The star-studded visual has been directed by Ava DuVernay (Selma, A Wrinkle In Time).

Check it out below:

Way before the video, the song already had us popping as it features the rapper confronting issues of infidelity, putting his marriage to Bey at stake.

Read an excerpt of the lyrics, for instance:

Yeah, I'll f*ck up a good thing if you let me
Let me alone, Becky
A man that don't take care his family can't be rich
I'll watch Godfather, I miss that whole shit
My consciousness was Michael's common sense
I missed the karma, that came as a consequence
Niggas bustin' off through the curtains 'cause she hurtin'
Can't losin' the babies 'cause their future's uncertain
Nobody wins when the family feuds

Much like the rest of the album - its raw, gritty and it comes straight from the heart.
