Tina Knowles Reveals All The Juicy Secrets About Beyoncé’s New Visual Album

Tina Knowles Reveals All The Juicy Secrets About Beyoncé’s New Visual Album

The saying mother knows best does not always apply to Tina Knowles, who happens to be the mother of superstar Beyoncé.

Beyoncé is set to release a visual album called Black Is King, and millions are eager to see it.

The songs from The Lion King inspired the film, The Gift, and will focus on the epic journey of a young man who is determined to discover his roots and learns that he has extraordinary powers along the way.

Mama Tina shared a post where she is promoting the film and gave some insider details.

I typically keep comments short and sweet, but I just watched the trailer with my family and I’m excited. 🎶please don’t get me hype🎶🤪 “Black Is King” is a labor of love. It is my passion project that I have been filming, researching and editing day and night for the past year. I’ve given it my all and now it’s yours. It was originally filmed as a companion piece to “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack and meant to celebrate the breadth and beauty of Black ancestry. I could never have imagined that a year later, all the hard work that went into this production would serve a greater purpose. The events of 2020 have made the film’s vision and message even more relevant, as people across the world embark on a historic journey. We are all in search of safety and light. Many of us want change. I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books. With this visual album, I wanted to present elements of Black history and African tradition, with a modern twist and a universal message, and what it truly means to find your self-identity and build a legacy. I spent a lot of time exploring and absorbing the lessons of past generations and the rich history of different African customs. While working on this film, there were moments where I’ve felt overwhelmed, like many others on my creative team, but it was important to create a film that instills pride and knowledge. I only hope that from watching, you leave feeling inspired to continue building a legacy that impacts the world in an immeasurable way. I pray that everyone sees the beauty and resilience of our people. This is a story of how the people left MOST BROKEN have EXTRAORDINARY gifts.❤️✊🏾 Thank you to Blitz, Emmanuel, Ibra, Jenn, Pierre, Dikayl, Kwasi and all the brilliant creatives. Thank you to all at Disney for giving this Black woman the opportunity to tell this story. This experience has been an affirmation of a grander purpose. My only goal is that you watch it with your family and that it gives you pride. Love y’all, B

Tina also confessed that she failed to see Beyoncé’s motivation and vision for the film, and she regrets that.

Tina stated: “I am so excited about this new film that Beyonce has done for Disney!! “Black Is King” Talk about a love letter to Africa and our journey as Black people!! I could not be more proud of this film. She has worked on this forever, it seems, day and night seven days a week at a huge personal and financial sacrifice. Many times as a concerned mother, I have said to her, you are a little too obsessed with this ! and people have no idea what this cost you in time, money, and blood sweat and tears.”

She added: “Her reply, “We need this right now, Mama”!! More than ever! “Everything started in Africa! It will be worth it”!!So Thankyou Beyonce for not letting anyone ( including me) or anything stop your messaging !!! For being an activist in your way through your art that shows the beauty and majestic power and strength of our people, ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ It was definitely worth it.❤️❤️❤️❤️”
