The 38-year-old singer executive produced, wrote and directed the release which puts "the voyages of Black families, throughout time" in the spotlight and follows "a young king's transcendent journey through betrayal, love and self-identity".

Beyonce's new visual album celebrating black culture has been greeted with rapturous reviews, arriving in the middle of a cultural reckoning about race and social justice.

Last night, musician Lizzo threw an elaborate watch party for the premiere of Black Is King-an anticipated musical film created by legendary singer Beyoncé which serves as a digital companion to 2019 album The Lion King.

Earlier this summer Beyoncé released new song "BLACK PARADE". The deluxe edition also removes the multiple interludes featuring dialogue from "The Lion King".

Hajiba Fahmi has been working with Beyoncé since January 2013, when she worked with the queen of pop on the "Standing On The Su" music video, a promotional commercial for H&M. "The narrative unfolds through music videos, fashion, dance, handsome natural settings and raw talent".

After mounted anticipation, Queen Bey fans can now check out her full Black Is King album on Disney Plus.

Beyoncé lets her natural curls down. The project has low-key been in the works for over an entire year.

Black Is King was inspired by Beyonce's time filming the remake of The Lion King.

The star's production firm, Parkwood Entertainment, described the album as "a celebratory memoir for the world on the black experience".
