Jay Z premiered the video for "Holy Grail," his latest single with Justin Timberlake, on Facebook on Thursday, Aug. 29.

The video, which can be viewed here (Warning: Video contains explicit language and images), will be exclusively on Facebook until noon on Aug. 30, according to Billboard, which also reports that Jay Z is the first major music artist to premiere a music video on the social media site.

The rapper has over 17.3 million fans on Facebook and Timberlake shared the video on his Facebook page as well, which has over 25 million likes at the time of this writing.

"Holy Grail" is off Jay Z's 12th studio album "Magna Carta Holy Grail." The video features a remixed version of the song that occasionally slows down vocals for both Jay Z and Justin Timberlake and rearranges Jay Z's rap verses.

The video was directed by Anthony Mandler, who has directed many music videos with Rihanna including "Diamonds" and other videos for artists like Beyonce, Eminem, Shakira and Justin Bieber. He recently directed Selena Gomez's video for "Come & Get It" and Taylor Swift's video for "22."
