Beyoncé has just released a sneak peek for her latest project, “BLACK IS KING.” This film and visual album is set to hit Disney+ on July 31st of this year.
Beyoncé both wrote and produced the film. She also directed it alongside Blitz Bazawule, Ibra Ake, Jenn Nkiru, Jake Nava, Pierre Debusschere, and Dikayl Rimmasch. The project is based on The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack.
Beyoncé described “BLACK IS KING” as a “labor of love” and says that she has been working on it day and night for the past year. She hopes that the production will serve “a greater purpose.” She states, “I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books.”
