    The new music video, co-created by Jay-Z and filmmaker Ava DuVernay, is a futuristic eight-minute epic which has soared to the top of the list of Twitter's trending items.

    The new video for rapper Jay-Z's latest single, "Family Feud," delighted music fans on its release in Friday. The dramatic video is eight minutes long and features turns from a host of actors and singers, including the rapper's wife, Beyonce.

    ​The video, directed by filmmaker Ava DuVernay, became the top trending item on Twitter within hours of its release on Friday.

    The futuristic film takes the story of the Carter family into the 2050's, where America is ruled by two presidents.

    Blue Ivy, the couple's five-year-old daughter, is depicted as a grown up and leader of the "founding mothers," a council of women who are debating and rewriting the US Constitution. Several well-known US actresses are on the council, including Mindy Kaling, Rosario Dawson and Rashida Jones.

    ​Jay-Z also appears to address allegations of his infidelity to Beyonce earlier in their marriage. He stands in a church and confesses his sins to Beyonce, who is standing in the pulpit.

    ​​​The single "Family Feud" is taken from Jay-Z's latest album 4:44, which has received eight Grammy nominations. The nominations were announced in November and the Grammy award ceremony takes place January 28th in New York.
