Beyoncé “Black Is King,”

she has outdone herself in her latest love letter to Blackness, at a time when that celebration is not only necessary but demanded.The singer’s visual album “Black Is King,” which dropped today , is everything her devout fan base, known as “The Beyhive,” wanted and more.And while her last solo visual album, 2016’s “Lemonade,” cast its gaze on the Black experience in America, Beyoncé ventures to the motherland in her latest project and makes an even bigger statement about identity and history.Filmed as a companion to her 2019 “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack, “Black Is King” comes amid an increased cultural focus on the Black experience and the treatment of people of the African diaspora, most specifically African Americans.The singer touched on the timeliness — and timelessness — of her latest project in a recent Instagram post.”The events of 2020 have made the film’s vision and message even more relevant, as people across the world embark on a historic journey,” she wrote. “We are all in search of safety and light. Many of us want change. I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books.”
