Beyonce had described the work as a "labor of love", that now serves "a greater purpose" than its original role as a companion piece to "The Lion King: The Gift", given the current sociopolitical climate.
"I believe that when black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our real history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books", she wrote.
In Black Is King, Beyonce wore outfits by many black designers and went on to reimagine the story of The Lion King across the modern world and presented elements of Black history along with African tradition in her album with a new, contemporary angle. But the representation doesn't stop there (nor should it; hopefully, Black Is King becomes proscriptive for this mission).
"I know she lost weight but she looks like a whole different person", said one Twitter user.
