In just a week, Beyoncé is trending again. Last time, Beyoncé dropped her single, “Black Parade”, during Juneteenth. For those of you who want to hear more, you are in luck. Beyoncé is back with her new visual album Black Is King, which will premiere on July 31st on Disney plus. According to Disney Plus, the visual album is a reimagination of “The Lion King.” It tells the story of Black families’ “transcendent journey through betrayal, love, and self-identity.” Through such a story, Beyoncé and Disney aim to encourage “today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns.” On top of that, Beyoncé hopes to raise the voices of the Black community and to “celebrate Black resilience and culture.”
With this mission in mind, the production team represents “diversity and connectivity,” giving a chance for producers to shine. Other than Beyoncé, the album features an exciting array of artists. This list includes Blue Ivy Carter, Jessie Reyez, Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Tierra Whack, and more. On Twitter, one user congratulated the production team for incorporating such a variety of voices.
