Beyonce went on to explain that in order to complete the project, she took a deep dive into studying Black history and African tradition. "I worked with a diverse group of very gifted directors and actors and creators from all over the world to breathe magic to the story of the Lion King". The narrative unfolds through music videos, fashion, dance, lovely natural settings and raw new talent. She also uses the video to highlight the beauty of being Black and includes lots of celebratory dancing.

"Black Is King is an affirmation of a grand objective, with lush visuals that celebrate Black resilience and culture". I see us reflected in the world's most heavenly things.
