Written by MAX FM on July 31, 2020
The moment Beyoncé fans have been waiting for is finally here: The 24-time Grammy Award-winning queen of pop has released her hotly anticipated visual album “Black Is King”, inspired by “The Lion King,” on Disney+.
For the last several months, the singer had been teasing the release of her new film, which is exclusive to Disney+. Once again revolutionizing the way artists release music — you’ll recall she somewhat started the trend of surprise releases — Black Is King is officially out now and people are raving about it and what it represents.
A story told from the voices of present-day Black people, Black Is King follows a young African king who gets cast out from his family and is thrust into our unforgiving world. He ends up using the guidance of his ancestors and his childhood love to make it back to his family. Of course, the story is supplemented by new music from Beyoncé herself.
