Beyoncé’s latest venture is a visual album/movie called Black is King. Released on streaming service Disney Plus, the film is a rough remake of 2019’s The Lion King, which featured Beyonce as well. Amidst the current social situation, such an empowering movie goes a long way toward promoting and celebrating black culture from all over the world. The film runs like a series of different music videos where you’ll see various beautiful artists from different parts of our planet coming together to create magic.
We also see Lion King’s franchise favorites such as Simba, Mufasa, Rafiki, Sarabi, Nala, and Scar. The amalgamation of these two worlds was a sight to see. For those who haven’t seen Bey’s 2019 The Lion King, you should check it out. Although Beyoncé and Jay-Z headline the whole thing, there are other artists as well that are brilliant at what they do. Given below is a list of all the artists featured on Black is King.
The twenty-four-time Grammy winner dedicated this performance and album to her son, Sir. We see her in the beginning as well as the end. She is playing herself in the movie, and like before, you won’t be able to take your eyes off her.
A complete act by himself, Jay-Z was seen here in ‘Mood 4 Eva’. He has always taken a backseat whenever Bey’s album is coming out and vice versa. Their relationship (ignoring the hiccups) seems like a Disney story in real life.
Rumi and Sir Carter
Blue Ivy’s siblings and younger children of the famous couple, Sir is seen at the end as Beyoncé gives her dedication, and Rumi is seen with her elder sister in “Brown Skin Girl.”
Blue Ivy Carter
Blue is Beyonce’s and JayZ’s firstborn, and is seen here on “Brown Skin Girl.” She won a BET award as well.
