2020 in Review: Beyonce Blazes With ‘Black Is King’

Published: Thursday 31st Dec 2020 by Sam

Whether penciled in history books for reasons good, bad, ugly, and/or everything in between, 2020 brought with it some of entertainment’s most memorable moments.

Now, as the year draws to a close, That Grape Juice is reflecting on our favorite moments that rocked – and to some degree maybe even reshaped – the Urban and Pop cultural landscape as we know it.

Next, we’ll look back at Beyonce‘s trailblazing visual album ‘Black Is King’...

Beyonce has long established herself as one of Pop culture’s premier envelope-pushers and 2020 saw her re-affirm that status with a new full-length visual effort.

Billed as a love letter to the Africa, ‘King’ saw Queen Bey add a fresh chapter to ‘The Lion King’ narrative following her widely-praised turn as Nala in the 2019 live-action revival.

Set to the music of her critically acclaimed compilation ‘The Lion King: The Gift,’ the Disney+ movie saw every song on the LP brought to life visually and featured a lengthy list of African superstars such as Wizkid, Shatta Wale and Yemi Alade, as well US icons like Jay-Z and Pharrell Williams.

In an unprecedented move, the singer ensured the film was broadcast on TV across the entirety of the African continent.

Despite effectively being between solo albums, Bey proved in 2020 that there are no limits to her work-rate or her desire to champion worlds, sounds, and messages that have been unsung for far too long.
