Beyoncé has a new visual album coming out on July 31 – and it is unashamedly based on the singer’s homage to the African culture and her own Black roots.She has shared a powerful trailer for her upcoming visual album Black Is King, which will be exclusively distributed by Disney Plus.
The 38-year-old, in a $100 million contract with the novel streaming service, is working three new projects with the network, both setting out new ventures in their career rebuilding process.In the trailer for her first project, she appears alongside with husband Jay Z, Kelly Rowland and her kids Blue, eight, and twins Rumi and Sir, three, in an ardent expression which will promote ‘black excellence and serves as a ‘celebratory memoir for the world on the black experience’.
She begins the trailer by saying that ‘the journey is a gift’.Hand-in-hand, the superstar couple later approach a Renaissance-inspired portrait, twins Sir and Rumi depicted as the little cherubim angels in the painting. With her Lion King: The Gift track playing in the background to give off the hints now and then, she says: ‘The answers have never left you… you can’t wear a crown with your head down’, before rapper Jay adds: ‘Nothing is complete on its own.
This is followed by scene after scene of the Houston born-and-raised singer’s singing and dancing, sometimes showing off the hints for her expected dynamic choreography, while other scenes show her in eloquent attire, reading a book titled Black Gods and Kings.
Kelly Rowland, her former bandmate in Destiny’s Child (also her cousin), appear in the scenes to, wearing skimpy clothes while she takes the center stage too.Blue Ivy, her firstborn daughter, also appears in a shot too. Then a boy is scene hurtling towards the Earth, telling the story ‘of how the people left most broken have an extraordinary gift and a purposeful future.
Marking 12 months after the release of The Lion King adaptation, in which Beyoncé voiced Nala and hailed the project ‘a love letter to Africa’, the movie was in production for one year with a team which represents ‘diversity and connectivity’, and has reworked messages from the famous film, which follows an exiled Simba’s journey to his rightful throne following the death of his father Mufasa.
