Queen B’s “Black is King” is a cinematic visual album inspired by “The Lion King.” Beyonce’s most ambitious project yet infuses elements of black history with an empowering message for young kings and queens seeking identity, and co-starring roles for Jay-Z, Lupita Nyong’o, and Naomi Campbell. Premieres 7.31.20 on Disney+.
Beyoncé’s surprise album features Jack White, The Weeknd, James Blake and Kendrick Lamar. It’s accompanied by a series of eclectic short films, and many of the songs address her troubled relationship with Jay-Z. It’s exclusive to Tidal, but we’ve got previews of each track.
It was all good when Bey was telling us to put our hands up. But when she talked about other reasons people put their hands up, worlds were shattered. Saturday Night Live addresses the ignorant uproar about Beyoncé’s Formation in a no holds barred skit.
