Jay Z first released “Glory” three years ago. Today, the music video for the Blue Ivy-inspired track is available on Tidal, and it features appearances from Alicia Keys, Questlove, Nas, and Liza Minnelli.
The music video is composed of footage taken from rehearsals leading up to Jay Z’s two 2012 concerts at Carnegie Hall that benefitted the United Way of New York City and the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation. The benefit concerts became the most high-profile hip-hop shows to be housed by Carnegie Hall. In the music video, you see Jay rehearsing the song while backed by a 30-piece orchestra, which Jeri Lynne Johnson of the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra is conducting. Jay also brought in the Illadelphonics, featuring Questlove.
