It’s Beyoncé so enough said. The Queen Bee has done it again! With the release of The Lion King on July 18th, Beyoncé has release the visuals to “Spirit,” the first single off the self produced soundtrack titled, The Lion King: The Gift. The album is to be released on July 19th.
Lets get into these visuals! Not only are we in awe for 4 minutes and 31 seconds, but we get a see a feature from Ms. Blue Ivy Carter!! We are sure every detail is intentional from the setting which intends to capture the artistry, culture and rhythm of Africa to the wardrobe which is custom made in Senegal. Don’t think we missed the plethora of beautiful brown beauties flaunting red hair – we can only assume this a nod to the unnecessary and ill argued controversy surrounding her artist Halle Bailey becoming The Little Mermaid. Queen Bee continues to be for the people.
Beyoncé has called the album a “love letter to Africa.” According to ABC.
“I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa and not just use some of the sound and did my own interpretation of it. I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa…” she said.
It’s safe to say she has succeeded but let’s be honest here. When does her artistry ever take an L?
