The visual album from Beyoncé reimagines the lessons of The Lion King and arrives shortly after the one year anniversary of that film’s debut.

The voyages of Black families throughout time are honored in a tale about 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.

Based on the music of The Lion King: The Gift, and starring the album’s featured artists and some special guest appearances, Black Is King will also offer videos for My Power, Mood 4 Eva, and Brown Skin Girl.
