Video: Jay Z – Picasso Baby

By - Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Since news surfaced that Jay Z was filming his new video for Picasso Baby in a room full of fans in New York’s Pace Gallery, the footage became highly anticipated. Directed by Mark Romanek, the video highlights the connection between live musical performance and the energy exchanged from performer to audience. The ten-minute video is the product of 30 hours of footage, six hours of which consisted of Jay-Z’s back-to-back performances of the track. In the video he shares an intimate space with his audience, rapping on a small platform but establishing no physical boundaries between himself and the fans other than a thin white rope. He even invites members of the audience to come up to the platform and show him some of their own moves. The audience consists of various people from fans to actors and artists, including actress Taraji P. Henson, rapper Wale, artist Marilyn Minter, producer Judd Apatow, and performance artist Marina Abromovic. Source: HYPETRAK
