I love everything about it! She is sending a message in her songs. If you clearly listen to it, you will hear what she is saying!! Love it love it love it!!!!! Go head Beyoncé!!! 🎉💃🏽🎉💃🏽🎉💃🏽🎉💞💖💞
In order to be called a queen you should do something important and be classy not trashy .. Never has this women even made a song worth 2cents Zero talent zero skill which should result in zero influence.. Aretha and Gladys QUEENS
This album is a beautiful soundscape that takes you into the story and message of The Lion King. The powerful messages in this album empower so many that have been long taught to undervalue their blackness. In every song, you hear the versatility of Beyonce, the intricacy of her melodies and harmonies, perfectly mixed with the style of her collaborators. Well done again. Decades from now, this record will withstand the test of time as a modern classic.
Beyoncé... just wow... she does it again. Gives us life, art, music, talent, all in one. Better than the bundle deals I get on amazon or Costco/Bj’s. A power house. Thank you for delivering to us once again. With we stand! 🙌😍
A beautiful retelling of the lion king and a beautiful visual album. It was for the culture and if people can’t understand that then 😁😅. As she said it’s not about spreading negativity or to make money off of it or any other BS people will try to say to discredit this masterpiece. The purpose of this visual album was to spin the narrative on the meaning of the word black: black is beautiful, black is smart, black is art; BLACK IS KING👑! Also there are limitless examples of her using her vocals as an instrument and blowing any performer out of the water with this album.
You know if a white person came out with a “movie” for an album and called it White Is King they would be considered racist. But since she is a Black pop star, it’s not considered racist. Today’s society it’s messed up.
The visual aspect was amazing, but each one of these songs stand alone as absolute beautiful works of art. Such a positive, empowering, and genius record. Hopefully I get play brown skinned girl one day to my daughter.
This album is different, and while I prefer groovy jams to bop and dance to, I realize that points need to be made so I purchased it before listening. May we all unite to save our world.
I haven’t heard an album this all over the place since JC Chasez’s Schizophrenic album in 2004. Pick a lane. Has she heard of a place called World Market? You can find tons of albums of music cultivated from all over the world that have more cohesiveness than this album. And the title of the album is clearly some cheap marketing ploy since it has zero to do with the film. Other than My Power and Scar, no real bangers in the batch. Frankly, I get the feeling she never heard world music until she decided to make this album. It did not sound richly diverse and instead sounded like it was going back and forth between Beyoncé pop songs and rap with the same African traditional drum beats you can find on a lot of keyboards. And where’s Sojaboy on this album? He get banned ‘cause of baby love Lisa? Beyoncé should do Beyoncé and not this Jay-Z colab stuff ‘cause it always sounds like a Jay-Z album that she’s hired to do vocal tracks on. I understand she’s gotta let him be the man to keep a happy marriage but she’s gotta shine too.
African artists: musicians, dancers, actors all the way through the visual album. Loved it all! This is Beyonce’s tribute to The Lion King to African people to Black Americans. This album is for Africa and her descendants. If Black people don’t like the visual album and album, colonialism has done a number on us, made us hate the very wording Black Is King and that is sad. This album is uplifting in a time where Black people need to be seen as more than the impoverished and oppressed the less than. We are so much more better than what our opressors say we are.
People are so MAD that she’s the best. What other artist is giving us visuals like this? Better yet can actually preform like she does? Nobody. It’s racist white people in the comments as well as Bible banging Christians calling it “satanic”. Y’all need to shut y’all mad behinds up because BLACK IS KING!!
Beyoncé brought an amazing diverse team of artists and more to create an uplifting album meant for empowerment. I’ve been listening to this album for a year straight now and I am still in love. Beyoncé continues to out do herself!
So sick of this woman and her exploitation of black people. Her and her husband have been making money exploiting the black race for years; first by selling drugs and now by pushing this crap.
