Beyoncé's celebratory visual album 'Black Is King' drops on Disney+

Black Is King is the re-imagination of Disney's The Lion King, which is the coming of age story of Simba, King of Pride Rock.

A release promised that the visual album will highlight "the voyages of Black families, throughout time" and tell the story of "a young king's transcendent journey through betrayal, love, and self-identity". Black Is King is a love letter to Black and African culture with epic hair and makeup looks throughout the entire film. The party concluded in the pool at midnight (when the film became available on Disney+) where Lizzo and friends queued up Black Is King on an outdoor screen. It features appearances from Jay-Z, Kelly Rowland, and Lupita Nyong'o among others.

Beyonce's new highly anticipated visual album Black is King has dropped on Disney+. (She also provided the voice for Nala in the film.) Produced by Beyoncé's production company, Parkwood Entertainment, Black is King also includes four full-length videos for the tracks "Already", "Brown Skin Girl", "Mood 4 Eva" and "My Power", which was featured in the latest trailer.

Earlier this summer Beyoncé released new song "BLACK PARADE". It's a celebration of African culture, from the clothes to the hair to the choreography. In tandem with the debut of the single, Queen Bey also launched a directory of Black-owned businesses for fans to browse and support.
