As you know, Beyonce’s Black Is King has finally hit the internet and it’s just the masterpiece we thought it would be. The movie, a reimagining of The Lion King through the eyes of the African diaspora, is moving, powerful and beautiful.
Bey also teased us with what to expect from the film when she dropped her stunning visuals for “ALREADY” which features Shatta Wale and Major Lazer. The video shows Beyonce dazzling in gaudy jewelry and African inspired garments. In true fashion, Beyonce and a group of dancers show off serious moves alongside killer cinematography.
As Bey explained on Good Morning America: “The narrative unfolds through music videos, fashion, dance, beautiful natural settings and raw new talent, but it all started in my backyard,” her message continued. “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.”
Bey added, “And my hope for this film is that it shifts the global perception of the word ‘Black,’ which has always meant inspiration and love and strength and beauty to me,” she added. “But ‘Black Is King’ means Black is regal and rich in history in purpose and in lineage. I hope y’all love it, I hope you enjoy it and I hope y’all see it tonight.”
She did just that. However, she has to take a backseat to the real star and that’s Blue Ivy. Check out what social media had to say about Blue’s show stopping performance and watch Black Is King, now available on Disney+.
Blue stole the show on her various appearances. We even got a Rumi appearance too. And the film was dedicated to Sir. Hit the flip to see how the internet was wowed by Blue…again.
