Here’s a surprise we need during these trying times. Beyoncé just released an epic trailer to her upcoming visual album, Black Is King, set to be released on Disney+. Watch the new trailer, plus deets on Bey donating PPE supplies to Cleveland inside….

Beyoncé loves a good surprise.

After weeks of rumors about Beyoncé inking a $100 million deal with Disney, a new project created by Mrs. Carter and Disney + has just been announced.

Black Is King is a new visual project/album set to drop July 31st on Disney+. The new visual album comes a year after Bey was featured in Disney’s The Lion King in which she voiced Nala. Black Is King is based on the music of The Lion King: The Gift, which is the official soundtrack of the Disney reboot.

Black Is King was written, directed and executive produced by Bey and it will feature the soundtrack’s featured artists as well as special guests. The pro-black project will boast features from Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, 070 Shake, Tierra Whack, Jay-Z, Blue Ivy Carter and Jessie Reyez, as well as African artists including Wizkid, Shatta Wale, Burna Boy, Mr Eazi, Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Yemi Alade, Busiswa and Salatiel.

"Black Is King is a celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience,” Disney and Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment said in a statement to Variety. “The film is a story for the ages that informs and rebuilds the present. A reunion of cultures and shared generational beliefs. A story of how the people left most broken have an extraordinary gift and a purposeful future.”

According to the companies, Beyoncé’s visual album reimagines lessons of “The Lion King” for “today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns.” The film was in production for one year with a cast and crew that represent “diversity and connectivity.”

"Black Is King pays tribute to voyages of Black families throughout time. The visual album tells the story of a young king’s “transcendent journey through betrayal, love and self-identity.” His ancestors help guide him toward his destiny, and with his father’s teachings and guidance from his childhood love, he earns the virtues needed to reclaim his home and throne.

“These timeless lessons are revealed and reflected through Black voices of today, now sitting in their own power,” according to the announcement. “‘Black Is King’ is an affirmation of a grand purpose, with lush visuals that celebrate Black resilience and culture. The film highlights the beauty of tradition and Black excellence.”

The new trailer dropped and it quickly started trending on Twitter. However, some people aren’t feeling Bey’s new project and are highly critical of the imagery. Peep a few tweets below:

Beyonce needs to stop using Africa as a trope because she won’t even come here to tour. https://t.co/hScoZC6vrh

The Wakandafication of the continent and Black diasporic identities is entirely uninspired. The repeated tropes/symbolic gestures that homogenise & essentialise thousands of African cultures in service of securing the terrain for Black capitalist possibilities & futures is tired.

So tiredddd. Complete lack of regard for those who actually live on the continent too.

Its basically another form of colonialism to me. I think we should be proud of our differences and work collectively.

I’m glad someone said it.

Thoughts?

Black Is King will be available to stream on July 31st via Disney+.

As for new music….

On Juneteenth, the Grammy Award winning singer dropped a new track titled “Black Parade,” which was co-written with her husband, Jay-Z. The track serves up Black empowerment vibes all while touching on the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests that have been raging on since the police killing of Minneapolis man George Floyd.  Take a listen above.

After donating millions to the COVID-19 relief, Mrs. Carter just recently donated tons of PPE supplies to help people in need in Cleveland amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

 

What a beautiful event that they’re putting on in #MyGlennville today

Thank you #Beyonce #TammyKenndy #Urbanleague @Sharp2018 #EastSideMarket appreciate the free #PPE supplies for our residents#communitybuilding#BLM #Census2020 pic.twitter.com/VyW1nC3deq

“We want to thank Beyonce and her mother the BeyGOOD Foundation for even thinking of Cleveland to donate PPE and personal hygiene supplies,” said organizer Tammy Kennedy.

People in need were able to receive much-needed supplies that they may not have been able to pick up from packed grocery stores during the pandemic. A generous Queen.

Also…

Beyoncé will be honored with the 2020 "BET Humanitarian Award" at the 2020 #BETAwards for all the work she’s done to help underserved communities through her @Beygood foundation.

Get through this – Yemi Alade lyrics

Lyrics Yemi Alade – Get through this

Something (Mi Casa)]
Baby dont you worry about a thing
It’s a part of it
Love cannot be built overnight
I can guarantee you one thing
It’s a fact of life
Love wont hurt if we do it right
When were stressing (Stressing)
Fighting (Fighting)
Crying (Cryring)
Baby know that
I would always be by your side
No there aint nothing (Nothing)
No not
One thing that could scare me
Or make me wanna leave your side.(get through this)

Ooohhh, yeah we gon get through this
Singing we gon get through this
Me and you
Me and you, girl.

There is only room for one
And I only got only got one girl
Baby you’re the only one
You’re the only one
Would you tell them.

Oh baby give me your number
So I could call you after
No need for all this gramar
Wey yu dey scatter scatter
Oh baby give me your number
So I can just holla you later
I don’t wanna be your one forever
Don’t wanna be the one that would respect you
I don’t wanna be the one to disrespect you
But I wanna let you know versuri-lyrics.info
That I can be the one to love you
Please you
And leave you
I see it in your eyes
I know you a bad sharp guy
I see you all around
I know that you just that type
It wasn’t me
It wasn’t me tryna call her back
It wasn’t me
It wasn’t me tryna lovr her back
It wasn’t me
It wasn’t me tryna do her right
While i do you wrong
Me no fit do that.

Oooh, yeah we gon get through this
Singing we gon get through this
Me and you
Me and you, girl.

There is only room for one
And I only got only got one girl (It wasn’t me)
Baby you’re the only one
You’re the only one.

look at me
Can you tell
Only one intention here
Just the two of us
Riding on to forever.

Hmmmm
I look at you
I can tell
Many many intentions here
It’s not the two of us
Riding on to forever
Nooo, no baby no.

Oooh, yeah we gon get through this
Singing we gon get through this
Me and you
Me and you, girlll.
