What is “Black is King” about?

Black is King” is a visual album from Beyoncé that reimagines the lessons of "The Lion King" for today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns. 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” is a celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience.

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. It’s a story for the ages that informs and rebuilds the present.
