JAY-Z just took things to another level!

The rapper released the highly anticipated "Family Feud" music video on Friday, shocking fans with a star-studded cast and even better director, none other than Ava DuVernay.

The Beehive first got whirled up with the 30-second teaser released the day before that featured JAY-Z and Beyonce in a confessional and little Blue Ivy walking down the aisle with her dad.

The visual, which was released exclusively on Tidal, features Michael B. Jordan, Thandie Newton and Trevante Rhodes caught up in a love affair.

It also features a round table with a diverse group of females including Rashida Jones, Constance Wu, Rosario Dawson, Niecy Nash, Janet Mock. Mindy Kaling, Susan Kelechi Watson and Brie Larson.

But that's not all! The music video also has appearances from Omar Hardwick, Jessica Chastain, Irene Bedard and David Oyelowo.

Best of all, Beyonce makes a stunning appearance as a pope dressed in all black and in a lavish black gown with over-the-top white sleeves, listening to her husband's confessions. Blue Ivy can also be seen in an elegant cream-colored dress with fur trimming.

DuVernay also shared some stunning behind-the-scenes shots of the video, as well as thanked her department heads.

"Happy so many are enjoying our #FamilyFeudFilm! Sharing some behind the scenes tidbits and exclusive pictures in this thread. Thank you to @S_C_ for the strong collaboration. A pleasure and an honor," she tweeted.

"The first scene focuses on errors. All families hurt each other. Mistakes are made. Expectations unmet. Jealousies fester. Dramatizing that energy are @michaelb4jordan, @thandienewton + @_Trevante_. Some behind the scenes snaps of their gorgeousness," she explained. "Here are a few more images of Mike looking like the black Jedi knight I wish we had. Shout out to our on-set photographer #SerBaffo who I met a decade ago as a PA on my first doc. He did the damn thing here. Good work, gentlemen."

Shortly after the video's debut, fans went wild! See their reactions below.
