“The voyages of Black families, throughout time, are honoured 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.”
The film will feature artists from the album and include special guest appearances.
Black Is King is a celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience.”
The teaser for the video can be seen on Beyoncé’s website.
