Of course, the real scene stealer was 8-year-old Blue Ivy Carter, whose appearance in the trailer threw Twitter into a frenzy.

She also released a Deluxe Edition of her album The Lion King: The Gift, which features two new songs, Black Parade, which she released on Juneteenth, and a remix of Find Your Way Back with MELO-X.


According to Disney, the visual album, also being called a film, has this official synopsis: "The voyages of Black families, throughout time, are honoured in a tale about a young king's transcendent journey through betrayal, love and self-identity". In the clip, the little girl can be seen wearing a sophisticated white off-the-shoulder dress with a string of large pearls around her neck and more dotting her elegant updo.

Yesterday, the 24-time Grammy Award-winner dropped the official video for her song Already from Black is King.


Speaking with "GMA", Bey opened up about her new film, which has been a year in the making. "I worked with a diverse group of very gifted directors, actors, and creatives from all over the world to re-imagine the story of The Lion King", she shared. "The narrative unfolds through music videos, fashion, dance, attractive natural settings and raw talent".

The film follows Beyonce's venerated 2016 visual album "Lemonade", which emphasized black womanhood against the backdrop of America's heritage of slavery and culture of oppression. But it all started in my backyard. She also uses the video to highlight the beauty of being Black and includes lots of celebratory dancing.


In Black Is King, which debuted on Friday on Disney+, Beyonce continues to dig deep into her roots and share her discovery with the world, like she did on the sweet masterpiece Lemonade. "But 'black is king" means black is regal and rich in history, in objective and in language. I hope you enjoy it. "I pray that everyone sees the beauty and resilience of our people".
