#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.

#BBNaija Day 4: The Task, The Fun, The Vibes… Setting the Mood Right

#BBNaija Day 4: The Task, the Fun, the Vibes… Setting the Mood Right
#BBNaija Day 4: The Task, the Fun, the Vibes… Setting the Mood Right

Big Brother Naija Season 5 (Day 4) has been full of vibes and fun. The Housemates decided to set the mood right as they prepare for the Task at hand.

The Lockdown Housemates have a big Task at hand later today but that didn’t mean life in the House won’t go on as usual. As the day began, they spent time sharing stories and lifting up their moods with what turned out to be an entertaining jam session.

The Fun

Trickytee and Wathoni swapped stories talking about all the fun places they had explored and others they’d like to explore. From a trip to the strip club to interesting restaurants, they both shared what they loved about the places they had been.

 Wathoni also shared the rich side of her Kenyan culture and life growing up describing what life was like growing up and how school teachers gave her a tough time. The Housemates are on a never-ending quest to keep the positive vibes going.

Here’s a wrap up of who was kissing who, while you were kissing your pillow.

We know it’s impossible to see every single minute of Big Brother due to sleep and doing the things that pay the bills. So if you’re wondering what changed in Biggie’s House while you were being hugged by your mattress, here’s a quick recap.

Erica and Ka3na

 Just when you think you have seen it all the Lockdown Housemates find a new way to surprise you. When it came time to sleep Dorathy and Prince decided they would be perfect pillow pals. The sight was pretty but the sound of Prince sleeping had viewers wondering if Dorthay got any sleep at all.

Trickyetee and Wathoni sharing storylines

After three days of walking around Biggie’s House and saying next to nothing, Lilo finally let down her guard just a little bit. During a late-night chat around the table with other Housemates, she started to share the nuances that make her uniquely perfect for Big Brother.

The Vibe

 A jam session got them all showing off their hidden talents. Turn by turn they all went singing their favourite songs to the entertainment of other Housemates. What started out as just a solo session soon turned into a mini-concert or a scene from a ‘turn’t’ club party. They all chorused the verses together and took their feet in what appeared to be a feel-good moment. Kaisha and Tochi took it even further and created a theme song for the Lockdown Housemates. Hopefully, it will catch on.

Erica and Ka3na had no plans to let the party end without a little twerking and money spraying. Just when it seemed like the party was losing steam, Laycon’s song came on and the House erupted.

The morning’s chatter got cerebral in the Big Brother Naija House as the Housemates cover culture and politics. Smart ones, you think?

After a cracking dancercise session with Praise, the Housemates took their renewed vigour the Arena and turned it into some brainy conversation.

Neo got talking about his tattoos, announcing to the Housemates, and the rest of the world for that matter, that he absolutely loves ink. “My mother didn’t want me to get it but I love ink.”

And in true Neo fashion, he broke ink down philosophically, bringing in theories on light and darkness and weirdly enough, those two digital plumbers from Brooklyn, the Marios Bros.

And while Dorathy was chewing and talking close to Ozo’s ear, Vee said she had never seen a BMW in Lagos. “I’ve seen them in London, but not one in Lagos. I’ve seen more Lamborghinis than BMWs.”

In the meantime, Laycon dropped knowledge about politics on Lilo and Tolanibaj, making them wiser by the minute. “We are all politicians. Politics is everywhere. Politics is about pushing an agenda. Governance is about satisfying needs.”

The Task

The first Wager Task is getting close and even while partying, the Housemates are not leaving anything to chance. Just at the end of their jam session, they took time to revise all they knew about each other. As the questions about each Housemate came up, they all echoed a response.

An additional spending allowance is at stake for tonight’s Wager Task and the Housemates are not letting this slip by them. How well would they do? We can only wait to find out. This is the first Wager Task so the pressure is intense.

However, Biggie continued calling Housemates into the Diary Room for sessions. The number of surprises that popped up would be too much to share in one quick sitting so read all about here and gossip amongst your friends like you watched the whole thing.

Just when you think there can’t be any more drama in Biggie’s House, the Housemates find new ways to make Lockdown the hottest Big Brother Naija season yet!
