Beyoncé fans go nuts over the many facets of 'Black Is King'

Provided by Essence

Black Is King is an nearly 90-minute visual album from Beyonce, released on Disney+. Filmed in New York, Los Angeles, South Africa, West Africa, the United Kingdom, and Belgium, the visual album is based on the soundtrack album The Lion King: The Gift and includes videos for "Already", "Brown Skin Girl", "Mood 4 Eva" and "My Power", per CNN.

Black is King honours the voyages of Black families, throughout time, in a tale about a young king's transcendent journey through betrayal, love and self-identity.

Beyonce wrote in an Instagram post that the recent calls for social change had made the album even more relevant than she had hoped when she began working on it.

The 38-year-old singer has three kids with her husband Jay-Z - eight-year-old daughter Blue Ivy and her three-year-old twins, son Sir and daughter Rumi.

Others to feature also include Wizkid, Shatta Wale, Burna Boy, Mr Eazi, Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Yemi Alade, Busiswa and Salatiel.

Filmed from locations all across the globe including New York, Los Angeles, South Africa, West Africa, London and Belgium, the film's vibrant cinematography captures a lovely cast of actors and dancers and stunning landscapes across continents.

The star's production firm, Parkwood Entertainment, described the album as "a celebratory memoir for the world on the black experience".

And although the album has faced some backlash from overseas for African images some thought were stereotypical, many Twitter users - including Ghanaian singer Shatta Wale, who is featured on the track "Already" - responded well to its portrayal of African nations.

It comes after Beyoncé dropped a surprise song to celebrate "Juneteenth", releasing the track Black Parade.

A press release states that Black Is King "reimagines the lessons of The Lion King for today's young kings and queens in search of their own crowns".
