Beyoncé dropped her Black Is King visual album as promised and it’s EVERY.THING.

Every couple of years, Bey raises the bar for the visual album.

Let’s not forget, Bey’s first real visual album was her sophomore album B’Day. It was the first time she released full-blown music videos for every single track. Then, she stopped the world when she unexpectedly released her 2013 self-titled album, Beyoncé, which def changed the game. Then, she snatched our wigs with her 206 visual album LEMONADE.

It’s 2020 and Mrs. Carter did NOT disappoint with her Black Is King visual album, which was a year in the making. Bey just raised the visual album bar even higher, reaching a level only she can reach. And we STAN.

Black Is King reimagines the lessons of Disney’s The Lion King for today's young kings and queens in search of their own crowns. The visual album was shot all across the world, from Bey’s backyard to Ghana, Johannesburg, Belgium and the Grand Canyon.



Before unleashing her masterpiece, the Grammy Award winning singer spoke with “Good Morning America" about her new film via video conference.

“I worked with a diverse group of very gifted directors and actors and creatives from all over the world to reimagine the story of The Lion King,” she said. “The narrative unfolds through music videos, fashion, dance, beautiful natural settings, and raw new talent.”

“It was truly a journey to bring this film to life and my hope for this film is that it shifts the global perception of the word Black, which has always meant inspiration and love and strength and beauty to me,” she continued. ‘Black Is King’ means Black is regal and rich in history, in purpose, and in lineage.”

The 90-minute film draws from last year’s Lion King: The Gift album. Kwasi Fordjour, who is the creative director of Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment, co-directed.
