A Brand-New Visual Beyoncé Album Is Coming to Disney+
Beyoncé Knowles Carter is back to snatch your breath.
The “Homecoming” and “Lemonade” singer revealed she’s ready to drop her next visual experience. That’s right “Black Is King” is coming straight to you from Beyoncé on Disney+. Based on the music from The Lion King’s The Gift soundtrack, Beyoncé has promised a virtual album written, produced, and directed all by her.
The best part? It’s due to debut in just a few weeks on July 31, 2020.
According to a recent press release from Disney + the visual tells “a tale of a young king’s transcendent journey through betrayal, love, and self-identity.”
“His ancestors help guide him toward his destiny, and with his father’s teachings and guidance from his childhood love, he earns the virtues needed to reclaim his home and throne,” Disney revealed.
“Black Is King is a celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience,” the statement said. “The film is a story for the ages that informs and rebuilds the present. A reunion of cultures and shared generational beliefs. A story of how the people left most broken have an extraordinary gift and a purposeful future.”
“These timeless lessons are revealed and reflected through Black voices of today, now sitting in their own power,” the statement proceeded. “Black Is King is an affirmation of a grand purpose, with lush visuals that celebrate Black resilience and culture. The film highlights the beauty of tradition and Black excellence.”
“A journey is a gift,” Beyoncé says in a teaser trailer released on her website over the weekend.
According to a report by Variety, Black Is King will feature Blue Ivy Carter, Jay-Z, Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, and others.
Beyoncé’s latest news is all of the confirmation that we needed to know that she’s the queen of relieving our collective COVID-19 anxiety.
No doubt Beyoncé has every intention of spreading a whole lot of Black Pride this summer.
