Jay-Z continues to up the ante on his highly-anticipated visual album 4:44 ahead of its June 30th release date with a slew of new trailers including "Adnis" and "Kill Jay Z." And the rapper's latest teaser clip—titled "MaNyfaCedGod"—gives viewers an intense and highly emotional look at the stunning star caught in a brief but powerful moment.

In the mesmerizing black-and-white 30-second video, which was released Wednesday on Jay-Z's streaming service Tidal, a visibly anguished Nyong'o stares off camera before sinking to the ground and exhibiting one of the best crying faces we've ever seen.

Seriously, we promise you won't be able to stop watching this transfixing performance on repeat!
