I’ve watched Black is King twice in two days to see if my initial reaction was the appropriate reaction and yeah, after just watching the visual album again this morning, it is very clear that this is an artistic masterpiece.
Beyoncé hasn’t done much in a while. There was that Netflix film, Homecoming, which was an in-depth look at her 2018 performance of her Grammy-winning album, Lemonade, at Coachella but it still wasn’t giving us anything new. This, however, is what Beyoncé’s fans have been waiting for since 2016, another powerful album that will have people dancing and singing in their houses for weeks to come.
This next visual album, however, is like I said another masterpiece.
Its visuals are stunning to say the least. Beyoncé is constantly adorned in the most fascinating costumes that add a level of beauty to the visual album that is nothing short of magnificent.
I mean, it’s just BEAUTIFUL. The songs that I have found to be the most fun to listen to were “My Power” which is pretty much my new anthem of the year, “Keys to the Kingdom”, “Find Your Way Back”, and of course “Spirit” is amazing.
All in all, Black is King, in my opinion, isn’t as great as Hamilton but it is pretty great, especially if you’re a Beyoncé fan. I’ll give it 95 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. I would’ve given it a perfect score if it hadn’t been so hard to follow or confusing at times. Yeah, the story can be overly cryptic.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fascinating day.
