Here’s a surprise we need during these trying times. Beyoncé just released an epic trailer to her upcoming visual album, Black Is King, set to be released on Disney+. Watch the new trailer, plus deets on Bey donating PPE supplies to Cleveland inside….

Beyoncé loves a good surprise.

After weeks of rumors about Beyoncé inking a $100 million deal with Disney, a new project created by Mrs. Carter and Disney + has just been announced.

Black Is King is a new visual project/album set to drop July 31st on Disney+. The new visual album comes a year after Bey was featured in Disney’s The Lion King in which she voiced Nala. Black Is King is based on the music of The Lion King: The Gift, which is the official soundtrack of the Disney reboot.

Black Is King was written, directed and executive produced by Bey and it will feature the soundtrack’s featured artists as well as special guests. The pro-black project will boast features from Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, 070 Shake, Tierra Whack, Jay-Z, Blue Ivy Carter and Jessie Reyez, as well as African artists including Wizkid, Shatta Wale, Burna Boy, Mr Eazi, Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Yemi Alade, Busiswa and Salatiel.

"Black Is King is a celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience,” Disney and Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment said in a statement to Variety. “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.”

According to the companies, Beyoncé’s visual album reimagines lessons of “The Lion King” for “today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns.” The film was in production for one year with a cast and crew that represent “diversity and connectivity.”

"Black Is King pays tribute to voyages of Black families throughout time. The visual album tells the story 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.

“These timeless lessons are revealed and reflected through Black voices of today, now sitting in their own power,” according to the announcement. “‘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.”

The new trailer dropped and it quickly started trending on Twitter. However, some people aren't feeling Bey's new project and are highly critical of the imagery. Peep a few tweets below:


Black Is King will be available to stream on July 31st via Disney+.

As for new music….

On Juneteenth, the Grammy Award winning singer dropped a new track titled “Black Parade,” which was co-written with her husband, Jay-Z. The track serves up Black empowerment vibes all while touching on the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests that have been raging on since the police killing of Minneapolis man George Floyd.  Take a listen above.

After donating millions to the COVID-19 relief, Mrs. Carter just recently donated tons of PPE supplies to help people in need in Cleveland amid the Coronavirus pandemic.



“We want to thank Beyonce and her mother the BeyGOOD Foundation for even thinking of Cleveland to donate PPE and personal hygiene supplies,” said organizer Tammy Kennedy.

People in need were able to receive much-needed supplies that they may not have been able to pick up from packed grocery stores during the pandemic. A generous Queen.
