Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment and Disney after announcing the visual album said that the song “Black is King” is related to the experience of the black community across the world. They also added that the story of the song is inspiring for all the ages that inform and rebuild the present.
Many people who are left broken have a purposeful future, and an extraordinary gift. According to these two companies, a visual album by Beyoncé, re-imagines lessons of “The Lion King” made for today’s Kings and Queens who are in search of a crown.
This song is a reunion of cultures and shared generational beliefs. The song features many black artists like Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Jesse Reyez, Blue Ivy Carter, and many more including some African artists as well.
