Beyoncé ha pubblicato il video di "Already", la canzone che vede la collaborazione di Major Lazer e Shatta Wale, parte del progetto visual Black is King disponibile da oggi su Disney+. Il progetto è basato su "The Lion King: the Gift", album che fece da colonna sonora al remake de "Il Re Leone". L'ennesimo pezzo che la cantante posa su quel progetto che da tempo porta avanti con la sua musica e non solo e che prevede di portare alla luce, sempre di più la cultura africana. L'album, infatti, vedeva la collaborazione di alcuni degli artisti africani che la popstar americana ama di più e che adesso si ripropone in maniera più ampia e visuale nel film.

Il video di Already

Il video della canzone vede Beyoncé protagonista di una lunga coreografia che la porta in varie location, da quelle più immerse nella natura in cui la cantante è vestita soprattutto di bodypainting a paesaggi più urbani fino a un magazzino in cui la coreografia è assieme a un piccolo corpo di ballo. E a proposito di corpo di ballo, nel video ci sono anche ballerini africani che probabilmente vediamo anche all'interno del visual album: "Long live the king, you a king, you know it King already, already, you know it Top everything, everything, you know it King already, already, you know it Mind, body, soul, got a king body Body gon' shine, bling bling, body Calling all the shots, ring ring, body Crown on your head, got a king body" canta rivolta a Simba Beyoncé.

Il testo di Already

Long live the king, you a king, you know it
