It's no secret that Hollywood darling Lupita Nyong'o has some serious acting skills. Whether she's stealing the scene with an Oscar-worthy appearance in 12 Years a Slave or giving us a thrilling performance in Queen of Katwe, the Academy Award-winning star never fails to put on a performance that we simply can't stop watching.

It should come as no surprise, then, that the actress's latest film appearance is causing quite the stir—even if it's only a half a minute long.

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."

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.
