Beyoncé, or Queen Bey, like the Bey Hive, fondly calls her, has been singing the message that Black Lives Matter long before the entire world joined the movement. She’s now put her voice and artistic expertise once again to this message in her new pan-African project; Black is King. Spoiler alert: the delivery is stellar!

On Friday, July 30, Beyoncé released Black is King, the movie on the Disney+ streaming service. Since the project’s release, social media has literally been taken over by visuals from the project. Every new trailer shared has earned a huge social media approval, and the Bey Hive couldn’t be more excited. Black is King review Beyonce.

“The voyages of Black families, throughout time, are honored in a tale about a young king’s transcendent journey through betrayal, love, and self-identity.

Three hours before the movie’s release, Beyoncé teased fans with yet another trailer on her Instagram. On the morning of the movie’s release, she dropped a surprise video for the song ‘Already’ featuring Ghanaian artiste Shatta Wale off her Lion King: The Gift album. The entire visual album is based on songs from this album.

“The voyages of Black families, throughout time, are honored in a tale about a young king’s transcendent journey through betrayal, love, and self-identity. His ancestors help guide him toward his destiny, and with his father’s teachings and guidance from his childhood love, he earns the virtues needed to reclaim his home and throne,” the movie bio reads.

“These timeless lessons are revealed and reflected through Black voices of today, now sitting in their power. Black Is King is an affirmation of a grand purpose, with lush visuals that celebrate Black resilience and culture. The film highlights the beauty of tradition and Black excellence.”

A Common Ancestry

As the project rightly proclaims, African Americans and Black people worldwide can trace their ancestry to Africa, which they often like to call the motherland.

The story of Black is King revolves around a young boy – like Simba in Lion King – who grows through situations to become who he is destined to be.

Beyoncé promotes diverse African traditional and contemporary fashion, beauty, and cultures throughout the project as she uses elements like the ‘African aunty’ in a gele look, ethnic hairstyles, and dancers dressed in colorful African-inspired attires and painted with a myriad of tribal patterns. Contemporary dance moves like the Zanku, Gbese, and Shaku Shaku also make appearances in many of the spirited scenes.

Black Artists United

The movie is filled with scenes bringing together all the top artists featured in The Lion King album, including spouse, JAY Z, Shatta Wale, Childish Gambino, Yemi Alade, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Burna Boy, Tierra Whack, Destiny Child sister, Kelly Rowland, Pharrell Williams. She also features Adut Akech and second mom, Naomi Campbell, Lupita Nyong’o, her mom, Tina Knowles Lawson, and children, Blue Ivy Carter, Sir, and Rumi.

Speaking to Good Morning America about the 85-minute visual Album, Beyoncé said, “It all started in my backyard, so from my house to Johannesburg to Ghana to London to Belgium to the Grand Canyon, it was truly a journey to bring this film to life,” she continued, “Black Is King’ means Black is regal and rich in history, in purpose and lineage.” Black is King review Beyonce.

The Reviews are Favorable

Many former critics have applauded Beyonce for a wonderful delivery on the Black is King project, especially on ‘Already’ in which she features Ghanaian superstar Shatta Wale.

Ms. Uduak, a California-based Attorney, Influential Visionary, and Publisher of Ladybrille and Africa Music Law, had this to say:

“…Particularly profound is her understanding that the “Black” man in America and wherever he may be found in the west, is a direct descendant of the African man, and that both are Kings. To underscore this, she rightfully places the African man via @Shattawalenima on a King’s throne. This singular act, in my view, is so powerful and a step in the right direction to begin shattering the very destructive narrative of Africans and correspondingly Black people, globally.”
