Beyonce and Disney have collaborated on the new album after months of speculation and rumors the two entertainment giants were in talks for some sort of project. Beyonce will write, direct and produce the visual album, as I wrote for Deseret.com.

“Black is King” — which is dropping about one year after the release of the live-action remake of “The Lion King” — will teach the lessons from the film, using songs from “The Lion King: The Gift,” an album that was released when the remake came out, as I wrote for Deseret.com.

“The voyages of Black families, throughout time, are honored 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 album’s synopsis reads. “These timeless lessons are revealed and reflected through Black voices of today, now sitting in their own power. ‘Black Is King’ is an affirmation of a grand purpose, with lush visuals that celebrate Black resilience and culture. The film highlights the beauty of tradition and Black excellence.”

The album debuts on July 31.
