Following the massive success of releasing Hamilton, Disney proudly presents to Beyonce fans the release of Black Is King her new visual album inspired by The Lion King: The Gift, streaming now on Disney+.

As the film’s writer, director, executive producer, and star, Beyonce invites the world to experience the visual representation of her album, The Lion King: The Gift, her companion soundtrack to the Disney remake that hit theaters last year. The streaming service is releasing the visual album just two weeks after The Lion King celebrated it’s one year anniversary, a film that Beyonce starred in, voicing the role of Nala.

Disney+ is premiering the highly-anticipated album exclusively on its platform for unlimited, ad-free viewing. You can sign up for Disney+ for just $6.99 a month here. A subscription gets you instant access to Black Is King, plus the entire catalogue of Disney and Marvel movies, original shows like Emmy-nominated The Mandalorian, and the recent release of the Broadway musical,  Hamilton.

Though Disney+ used to offer a 7-day free trial to its service, that has been recently discontinued. However, for a good deal, we suggest signing up for a bundle deal that includes Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu for just $12.99 a month, which gets you all three services at a savings of 25% off. Once you’re in, you can watch Black Is King, and thousands of hours of other programming with full pause/play functions, unlimited repeat viewings and no restrictions. You can also cancel anytime.

Black Is King features guests such as Beyonce’s husband Jay Z, fellow Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland, producing legend Pharrell Williams, her mother Tina Knowles-Lawson, her daughter Blue Ivy, and many of the other incredible artists that appear on The Gift album. “You were formed by the heat of the galaxy. What a thing to be, both unique and familiar,” Beyoncé says in voiceover of the trailer (see above). “To be one and the same, and still unlike any other.”

In addition to its premiere on Disney+, the film also secured a distribution deal that will allow for its showing on much of the African continent, including South Africa, Nigeria, Ethiopia, more. “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,” Disney said of Black Is King in the announcement release. “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 group have Rihanna rapping over a futuristic beat. “I get it how I live it / I live it how I get / Count the mothaf***in’ digits / I pull up with a lemon / Not ’cause she ain’t livin’ / It’s just your eyes get acidic / And this here ain’t a scrimmage / Mothaf***a, we ain’t finished,” Rihanna raps.

Pharrell also provides some catchy vocals to compliment the beat and overall feel of the single. “Hate! Bad b**ches wanna be my bae / Hate! Hunt me down like the C.I.A / Hate! Side of my car, tryna see my face / Hate! Want me to beat it like the T.I. case,” Pharrell sings.

N.E.R.D also released a video for the single which they called a tutorial. Rihanna is also featured in the visuals which shows her shaving a woman head bald and then broke out into a eye catching dance sequence.

Vocal beast! #RIPChester #LinkinPark,” Rihanna wrote, while Pharrell Williams added, “Chester… You and the guys all influenced an entire generation. You went so hard and set so many kids free of their environments and situations. You let NERD open for you in Germany, we’ll never forget that show; YOU CRUSHED IT. The last time I saw you, you gave us chills. Your essence is amongst the stars. Rest now.”

Chester Bennington was the lead singer of the group Linkin Park where he helped them garnered critical acclaim in the music business and sold 10s of millions of records. Their debut album Hybrid Theory was released in 2000 where they fused a number of genres like hip hop, pop, and rock to make their unique sound. That album has since sold over 10 million copies and has been certified diamond.

Cris Cab – Liar Liar

feat. Pharrell Williams

To the night time, she’s burning
Right from the which way she was turning
and I still know the pain,
She brought me live one day
She was always somewhere behind me
Thought that was something she was hiding,
but now I found the TRUTH
The thing she’ll never use!

LIAR, LIAR, she’s on fire
She’s waiting there, around the corner
Just a little aid, and she’ll jump on ya’

It’s a quarter to midnight & she’s leaving
Just when she thought I was sleepin’
And I COULD NOT BELIEVE, the things that
I had seen
When was the right time, I caught her
And she was dead in the water
I found her with her tracks
She heard me, answered back

LIAR LIAR, she’s on fire
She’s waiting there around the corner
Just a little aid, and she’ll jump on ya’

LIAR LIAR, oh oh oh
I need the sun to keep me dry
LIAR LIAR, oh oh oh
The way you got me swimming through your life
LIAR LIAR, oh oh oh
Keep hearing voices in my mind, saying:
Problem with the lifestyle, she’s in denial!

LIAR LIAR, she’s on fire
She’s waiting there around the corner
Just a little aid, and she’ll jump on ya’
LIAR LIAR, she’s on fire
She’s waiting there around the corner
Just a little aid, and she’ll jump on ya’
