Black Is King
“Black Is King,” a visual album by 24-time GRAMMY® Award-winner Beyoncé Knowles-Carter based on the music of “The Lion King: The Gift,” reimagines the lessons from Disney’s global phenomenon for today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns. “Black Is King” was in production for one year and features a cast and crew that represent diversity and connectivity. Filmed in various locations, the visual album’s cinematography captures beautiful people and landscapes across continents, starting in New York, then Los Angeles, South Africa, West Africa, London and Belgium. From all those places came an extraordinary cast of actors and dancers that influenced the visual album’s rich tableau and vibrant choreography. A celebratory memoir for the world on the black experience, “Black Is King” includes full-length videos for the song “My Power” and more.
