If you’re a devout member of the Beyhive and a Disney fanatic, then Beyoncé’s latest project will be music to your ears — and eyes. “Black is King” — written, directed and executive-produced by Queen B — premieres Friday and is available for streaming exclusively on Disney+.
The ‘Lion King’ connection
Bey’s new visual album is inspired by the live-action version of “The Lion King,” which features Beyoncé’s voice as Nala.
Dropping just more than a year after the movie, Queen Bey’s highly anticipated visual album “is a celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience,” according to the production companyParkwood Entertainment.
The 85-minute film is an evocative visual re-creation of Beyoncé’s album, featuring songs such as “Brown Skin Girl,” “My Power” and “Mood 4 Eva,” which were featured on “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack.
The 24-time Grammy winner has been working on the visual album for a year, incorporating a diverse cast. The film’s purpose is to “celebrate black resilience and culture.”
