Beyoncé Releases Visual Album 'Black is King'

Beyoncé Releases Visual Album 'Black is King'”

On Saturday, Adele posted an Instagram photo in tribute to Beyoncé and her new visual album, Black Is King.

Black Is King is an nearly 90-minute visual album from Beyonce, released on Disney+.

The work is an ode to the black experience rife with vibrant imagery celebrating the African diaspora, an aesthetic exploration of black history, power and success that also references colonialism, economic disparity and racism.

One conversation being had about Black Is King is how itimplemented The Lion King in an original way, a quality Jon Favreau's live-action version may have lacked.

Beyoncé's album comes as Black Lives Matter protests continue throughout the USA following the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

And although the album has faced some backlash from overseas for African images some thought were stereotypical, many Twitter users - including Ghanaian singer Shatta Wale, who is featured on the track "Already" - responded well to its portrayal of African nations.

As for Beyonce's new film.it's the talk of the town right now. Husband Jay-Z, daughter Blue Ivy, and twin babies Rumi and Sir all make cameos, and Blue Ivy makes her singing debut.

Beyonce took the world by storm and released an entire visual album this week. The Moroccan flag can be seen at the minute 4.18 in the 4.45 minute-long video clip.

It was only in May when Adele broke her social media hiatus and posted a new photo of her showing off her noticeable transformation.

Still, the Bey Hive - Beyonce's legion of ardent fans - voiced elation over the release of "Black Is King", which quickly became a top trending hashtag.
