Beyoncé’s festive visual album ‘Black Is King’ hits Disney +



The album, based on the vocal album of the singer “The Lion King: The Gift” for the 2019 filming of the Disney movie, reimagines the lessons from the movie about “today’s young kings and queens in search of their crowns”, said Disney + in a release, and is a “festive reminder to the world of the black experience.”

The lively cinematic album was produced over the course of a year and features a diverse cast and crew welcoming from numerous locations where it was shot, including New York, Los Angeles, South Africa, West Africa, London and Belgium.

The singer, who also directed and executed the production of the work, first teased the trailer of the album on YouTube on July 19, in a video that has already made more than 2.7 million views.

The album includes full-length videos for songs, including “My Power”, “Brown-skinned Girl”, “Mood 4 Eva” and “Already”.

Beyoncé’s first visual album was the self-titled “Beyoncé”, released in 2013, featuring the hit songs “Drunk In Love” and “XO”.

Her second visual album, “Lemonade”, released on HBO in 2016, was a dreamy and powerful visual mix, spoken word, stories and verses with themes of love, betrayal, empowerment, nobility and family.

Earlier this year, Beyoncé released her hit song “Formation” from the album, with a video featuring images closely linked to the Black Lives Matter movement.
A scene in the video features a young African-American boy in a hood, dancing in front of a line of police officers dressed in riot gear; then, the words “Stop stopping us” appear in graffiti on a wall.

There was some controversy over the video and over the Black Panther-esque outfits worn by the dancers in a performance of the first part of the dirty Super Bowl.

Some police departments argued that the images were illegal enforcement. Fans, however, backed the singer, with one person on Twitter: “American police are harassing Beyonce because she asked the police not to kill black people, please and thank you.”
