American singer Beyoncé Knowles gifted the world a music video of her latest hit song, “Brown Skin Girl.” The six-minute exhibition of Black excellence, beauty, and finesse featured several top-rated icons celebrating the dark-skinned community.

Musical goddess Beyoncé Knowles proved her royalty once again, celebrating Black women from all walks of life in a single video. The 38-year-old released a music video of her “Lion King” inspired hit song, “Brown Skin Girl,” winning over the world with its powerful message.

The video, which is available for free on YouTube, featured cameos from influential Black women like Lupita Nyong’o, Naomi Campbell and Kelly Rowland among others. Beyoncé’s daughters, Rumi, 3, and Blue Ivy Carter, 8, also made appearances.

The “Brown Skin Girl” music video opened with an affectionate display of black sisterhood, crowned with the epic scene of the icon playing a clapping game with Blue Ivy.

The video came off as powerful as the lyrics which worshipped black women, idolized their innate beauty, and celebrated the African community.

If the message was not clear enough, the 38-year-old star expressed her intentions in an exclusive interview. She said it was important to her that they were able to represent all different shades of brown in the song.

Going further, the singer relayed how important it was for her to make all brown-skinned women understand they were “all in this together.” It was a celebration of Black excellence, she concluded.

With Beyoncé's new dedication to celebrating Black heritage, the world may be set for a new revolution.

The songstress left nothing out in her portrayal of Black excellence. Solos from Wizkid, SAINT JHN, Blue Ivy, and the Black queen herself, Beyoncé, gave the song an aura of uniqueness, further passing on the track’s message.

Queen Bey released the stand-alone video on August 24, barely a month after releasing the “Black Is King” visual album. The music video hit almost a million views within 24 hours of its release.

Like the rest of the “Lion King” inspired hits, Beyoncé lyrically encouraged Black women, and everyone within the African ancestry to embrace their heritage and power.

It can be recalled that the mother of four released the “Black Is King” visual album on July 31, 2020, which premiered worldwide on Disney+. 

The album was based on “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack from the Disney photorealistic film in which Beyoncé lent her voice to the character Nala, in 2019. 

Since the film’s debut, the hip hop artist has released four highlight videos, including "Spirit" and "Bigger," which premiered with the animated film live-action remake. "Already," and her newest hit dropped with the 2020 visual album.
