Jay-Z pulled out all of the stops for his latest music video for "Family Feud."

In the almost eight-minute long video, the 48-year-old rapper effectively confirms the rumours that he cheated on wife Beyoncé.

The video chronicles a story that takes place over 400 years, starting in 2444 and going back in time to 2018 where Jay-Z takes daughter Blue Ivy to church to confess his sins.

But Jay-Z doesn't just confess his sins to anyone: he asks for forgiveness from Queen Bey herself.

The Ava DuVernay-directed short film features actors Rosario Dawson, Mindy Kaling, Michael B. Jordan, Thandie Newton, Jessica Chastain, Omari Hardwick and many more.

The video narrates a tale of murder, infidelity, political chaos and warfare.

The last three minutes of "Family Feud" features The Carter family, but the majority of the video for the 4:44 single acts as a short film.

This Is Us star Susan Kelechi Watson portrays the adult version of Blue Ivy who is the President of the United States creating policy alongside an entire table of women including Constance Wu, Rashida Jones, Janet Mock and Brie Larson.

Watch the video below and see if you can spot all of the cameos.
