Beyonce’s new music video for “Brown Skin Girl” is reportedly in search of “normal people” to highlight the true essence of the song.

Beyonce’s team is looking for a wide range of “normal people” to “step forward and tell their stories.”

Beyonce’s team is currently in London shooting scenes for what will certainly be an epic video for the song that landed her daughter, Blue Ivy on Billboard’s records. Blue lent her vocals to the "Lion King” soundtrack and became the youngest performer to make it to Billboard’s Top 100.

The catchy tune with meaningful lyrics has become an ode to colored people. It encourages the appreciation of one’s own skin.

There’s a need for trained actors and dancers but the bulk of casting will involve people of all shapes and ages ranging from six months to old age.

According to Daily Mail, the video for the song hopes to embrace the idea of loving each other’s differences. As such, Beyonce’s team is looking for a wide range of “normal people” to “step forward and tell their stories.”

“Her casting team called for all different family structures to apply including 'blended, single parent, queer and adopted’,” a source from Beyonce’s production told the publication.

Beyonce was not in London when the filming commenced this week. Only her production crew were spotted in several locations in Catford and Thamesmead including the local HM Prison in Thameside.

The source added that the search is focused on “Black and Brown people of different cultures, nationalities, ethnicities, genders, and ages” and with backgrounds in London where scenes for the video are being shot.

Beyonce will reportedly only take part in scenes shot in America. The video is directed by Jenn Nkiru, who also directed Beyonce and Jay-Z’s “Apes**t” video.

It’s unclear for now if Blue Ivy will also be part of the filming but we won’t be surprised if she’ll be involved since she has a marked participation in the song.
