Just a few hours before her “Black Is King” visual album debuts on Disney Plus, Beyonce has given fans a brand new music video.
Late Thursday night, the 24-time Grammy winner dropped a new music video for “Already” from “The Lion King: The Gift” that will be featured on “Black Is King.” The song features Shatta Wale and Major Lazer and features dialogue from last year’s “The Lion King” photorealistic remake at the beginning of the video.
“Black Is King” promises to reimagine the lessons from “The Lion King” for “today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns,” according to a press release, and is inspired by music from the soundtrack.
The original album was the soundtrack for last year’s “The Lion King.” Beyoncé curated and executive produced the soundtrack, which featured her daughter Blue Ivy Carter, Jay-Z, Childish Gambino, Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar, Tierra Whack, 070 Shake, Jessie Reyez and other artists.
“Black Is King” releases on Disney Plus on July 31 at 12:00 a.m. PT. Watch the new music video below.
