During these Juneteenth holidays, Beyoncé dropped “Black Parade”.
As you might have guessed, the song is about the recent events, such as George Floyd’s death and the rise of the BLM movement. Under the Instagram post with the song, the singer wrote about her hopes of keeping strong and together with her fans, even during these trying times.
It worths mentioning that “Black Parade” was co-written with her husband Jay-Z along with Brittany Coney, Derek Dixie, Akil “Fresh” King, Densia Andrews, Rickie “Caso” Tice, and Kim “Kadence” Krysiuk.
Today Beyoncé has released a video for the song “Brown Skin Girl”, which is included in the singer’s third visual album, “Black Is King”. The video was directed by Jenn Nkiru, daughter of Beyoncé Blue Ivy, supermodel Naomi Campbell, singer Kelly Rowland, and actress Lupita Nyong’o took part in the filming.
A new trailer for Beyoncé’s visual album “Black Is King” has also been released. The project will be released on Disney + and will “reimagine the lessons of The Lion King for today’s young kings and queens” who are “in search of their own crowns.”
In 2019, Beyoncé voiced Nala in the Lion King remake and produced the film’s soundtrack, which was released as a separate album, The Lion King: The Gift. Childish Gambino (Donald Glover voiced Simba in the film), Jay Z, Farrell Williams, and artists from Africa worked on “The Gift”. “Black Is King” is based on music from The Gift, so many of these musicians are expected to appear on Beyoncé’s visual album as well. “Black Is King” will be released on Disney + on July 31st.
