Beyoncé Narrates First Trailer For Visual Album ‘Black Is King’

Beyoncé has narrated the first trailer for her upcoming visual album, Black is King.

“You were formed by the heat of the galaxy. What a thing to be, both unique and familiar, to be one and the same — and still unlike any other,” Beyoncé says as a young boy floats in space.

“Life is a set of choices: Lead, or be led astray,” she continues. “Follow your light — or lose it.”

The trailer also features appearances from Jay-Z, Kelly Rowland, Lupita Nyong’o, Tina Knowles-Lawson, Pharrell Williams, and others.

Previously, Beyoncé had said that the film was originally created as a companion piece to The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack and was meant to celebrate the “breadth and beauty of Black ancestry.”

Black Is King will stream exclusively on Disney+ beginning July 31.
