Bijonse je predstavila najavu njenog novog video albuma naziva „Black Is King“ koji će biti prikazan na Disney streaming servisu.
Kako je napisala u opisu promo videa na društvenoj mreži „Instagram“, na ovom projektu je radila tokom proteklih godinu dana, a inspiraciju je pronašla tokom rada na filmu “The Lion King: The Gift” za koji je ovo prvobitno bio propratni materijal kojim je pevačica trebalo da oda počast njenom poreklu. Sumirajući trenutne aktuelne događaje, ona je istakla da danas ovaj video materijal služi „većoj svrsi“.
„Ovim vizuelnim albumom želela sam da predstavim elemente istorije negroidne rase i afričke tradicije, sa modernim zaokretom i univerzalnom porukom, i šta zaista znači pronaći svoj identitet i izgraditi nasleđe“, napisala je u opisu promo videa na pomenutoj mreži.

I typically keep comments short and sweet, but I just watched the trailer with my family and I’m excited. ?please don’t get me hype?? “Black Is King” is a labor of love. It is my passion project that I have been filming, researching and editing day and night for the past year. I’ve given it my all and now it’s yours. It was originally filmed as a companion piece to “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack and meant to celebrate the breadth and beauty of Black ancestry. I could never have imagined that a year later, all the hard work that went into this production would serve a greater purpose. The events of 2020 have made the film’s vision and message even more relevant, as people across the world embark on a historic journey. We are all in search of safety and light. Many of us want change. I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books. With this visual album, I wanted to present elements of Black history and African tradition, with a modern twist and a universal message, and what it truly means to find your self-identity and build a legacy. I spent a lot of time exploring and absorbing the lessons of past generations and the rich history of different African customs. While working on this film, there were moments where I’ve felt overwhelmed, like many others on my creative team, but it was important to create a film that instills pride and knowledge. I only hope that from watching, you leave feeling inspired to continue building a legacy that impacts the world in an immeasurable way. I pray that everyone sees the beauty and resilience of our people. This is a story of how the people left MOST BROKEN have EXTRAORDINARY gifts.❤️✊? Thank you to Blitz, Emmanuel, Ibra, Jenn, Pierre, Dikayl, Kwasi and all the brilliant creatives. Thank you to all at Disney for giving this Black woman the opportunity to tell this story. This experience has been an affirmation of a grander purpose. My only goal is that you watch it with your family and that it gives you pride. Love y’all, B
