Eerder deelde Beyoncé al een sneak peek van de trailer op haar Instagram, maar deze is nu eindelijk helemaal te bekijken via het Youtube-kanaal van Disney.

Black Is King sluit aan op The Lion King

Eerder werd al bekend dat het visuele album eraan zat te komen en dat het hoort bij The Gift; het album dat de zangeres uitbracht bij de film The Lion King. Beyoncé liet toen weten dat ze een jaar lang non-stop aan het album heeft gewerkt. "Het viert de breedte en schoonheid van Zwarte afkomst," aldus Beyoncé op Instagram.

De zangeres vertelde ook dat ze met het visuele album elementen uit de Zwarte geschiedenis en Afrikaanse traditie met een moderne twist en een universele boodschap wil presenteren. "Het is een verhaal over hoe de mensen die het meest gebroken zijn de meest buitengewone talenten hebben," aldus Queen Bey.

I typically keep comments short and sweet, but I just watched the trailer with my family and I’m excited. 🎶please don’t get me hype🎶🤪 “Black Is King” is a labor of love. It is my passion project that I have been filming, researching and editing day and night for the past year. I’ve given it my all and now it’s yours. It was originally filmed as a companion piece to “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack and meant to celebrate the breadth and beauty of Black ancestry. I could never have imagined that a year later, all the hard work that went into this production would serve a greater purpose. The events of 2020 have made the film’s vision and message even more relevant, as people across the world embark on a historic journey. We are all in search of safety and light. Many of us want change. I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books. With this visual album, I wanted to present elements of Black history and African tradition, with a modern twist and a universal message, and what it truly means to find your self-identity and build a legacy. I spent a lot of time exploring and absorbing the lessons of past generations and the rich history of different African customs. While working on this film, there were moments where I’ve felt overwhelmed, like many others on my creative team, but it was important to create a film that instills pride and knowledge. I only hope that from watching, you leave feeling inspired to continue building a legacy that impacts the world in an immeasurable way. I pray that everyone sees the beauty and resilience of our people. This is a story of how the people left MOST BROKEN have EXTRAORDINARY gifts.❤️✊🏾 Thank you to Blitz, Emmanuel, Ibra, Jenn, Pierre, Dikayl, Kwasi and all the brilliant creatives. Thank you to all at Disney for giving this Black woman the opportunity to tell this story. This experience has been an affirmation of a grander purpose. My only goal is that you watch it with your family and that it gives you pride. Love y’all, B
