#BlackIsKing :Beyoncé Flexes her New Visual Album ‘Already’ (Video)

Published

on

Early Friday morning (July 31), fans joyously unwrapped Beyoncé’s visual album Black Is King on Disney+.

Designed to be a re-imagination of the 2019 film The Lion King, Queen Bey looks to recreate the Black experience, mainly for young African American boys and girls on the project.

Studded with an army of talented dancers, actors and famous guest stars, Beyoncé’s passion project is a crystal-clear illumination of the importance of Black pride and excellence.

Beyoncé’s Black Is King is roaring into existence with a little help from a ferocious music video.

After dropping her new visual album Friday morning on Disney+, the icon released an accompanying clip of the project’s tune “Already” featuring Major Lazer and Shatta Wale.

The video sees Beyoncé shifting from stylized indoor locales to sprawling outdoor environments, including a scene where she’s perched in a tree covered in vivid body paint.

“Already” originally appeared on Beyoncé’s 2019 album The Lion King: The Gift, which the singer created with inspiration from Disney’s photorealistic remake — for which Beyoncé also voices a character — of the classic 1994 animated feature.

In addition to new music, Black Is King also features guest appearances by Lupita Nyong’o, Naomi Campbell, Kelly Rowland, and Jay-Z, and tells a re-imagined version of The Lion King‘s narrative focused on communicating lessons “for today’s young kings and queens” to absorb.

Watching ‘Black Is King’ film, you would learn how Beyoncé Gives Hope to Young Black Kings:

Her words of affirmation: “If you think you are insignificant, you better think again,” “you’re part of something way bigger” and “we are winners” are poignant and vital to Blacks who have been scarred by the claws of racial injustice and prejudice.

She also stated that “Black Is Regal & The Star Power Proves It.” With Beyoncé dictating the tempo, Queen B enlisted a bevy of superstar talent to anchor her visual album.

However, The biggest gem proves to be “Brown Skin Girl” with star cameos led by Naomi Campbell, Lupita Nyong’o, and Beyoncé’s daughters, Blue Ivy and Rumi.

Beyoncé didn’t hold back in spreading the wealth in terms of locations. The iconic singer travelled to Belgium, West Africa, London, New York and Los Angeles to helm her hour-plus long film.

The singer even shot some vibrant scenes right at home. “It all started in my backyard,” she told GMA. “So from my house to Johannesburg, to Ghana, to London, to Belgium, to the Grand Canyon, it was truly a journey to bring this film to life.”

The film ‘Black Is King’  portrays the Values the Essential Black Community holds. The 90-minute film masterfully exudes the importance of family, female empowerment, self-identity, beauty and more.

The striking re-imagination is noble, as Beyoncé and company attempt to remedy the numerous tragedies endured by Blacks, specifically when it comes to police brutality.

By pouring out uplifting messages throughout the film, BIK is a sincere reminder that no battle can drown the swagger and confidence of Blacks in America.

With songs like “Freedom” and “Formation” at her disposal, Bey valiantly sacked the issues of police brutality and praised the valor of African American women.
