Beyoncé will be releasing a new visual album ‘Black Is King’ inspired by ‘The Lion King’ on Disney + in July.
The visual album is curated by Queen B herself as a writer, director, and executive producer. ‘Black Is King’ was put together within a year and will reimagine lessons of “The Lion King” for an audience of “young kings and queens in search of their own crowns.
From the mind-blowing 1-minute trailer, you will notice local stars such as Warren Masemola, Connie Chiume, Nandi Madida, Moonchild Sanelly and Nyaniso Dzedze.
The visual album will debut on Disney+ on 31 July 2020. This has to be somehow weird because the platform is not even available in Africa, even though this is also to showcase the continent’s talent. Hopefully, this will be available in a more accessible platform.
