After weeks of teasing her new project, Beyoncé finally dropped Black is King on Disney+ at midnight on July 31st. Well, the visual album is definitely the gift that we all needed in 2020 because not only does it take us on narrative journey through the gorgeous and rich African landscape and culture, not only is it the perfect follow-up to her 2019 musical release Lion King: The Gift, but, it gives us another opportunity to see Blue Ivy slay in her own spotlight!
In addition to singing, the talented eight-year-old made several cameos throughout the film, also showing off her own dance skills.
However, Blue Ivy wasn’t the only Carter to put in appearances. Her three-year-old siblings, twins, Rumi and Sir, can also be seen in the film, in addition to father/husband Jay-Z. Yet, those aren’t the only notable faces that are a part of this amazing project. Naomi Campbell, Pharrell, Jessie Reyez, Lupita Nyong’o, Tiwa Savage, Tierra Whack and numerous other Black and African actors/musicians all show up for Black is King as well.
If you need a refresher, here is the official audio of Brown Skin Girl.
So what are fans across the internet saying about Blue Ivy’s new rendition of Brown Skin Girl for Black is King? Take a look at a few comments below:
