The new visual serves as an extended version of the visual that initially appeared in Queen Bey’s highly anticipated musical film, is now available outside of the Disney+ platform.
“Oh, have you looked in the mirror lately?/ Wish you could trade eyes with me ’cause/ There’s complexities in complexion/ But your skin, it glow like diamonds/ Pigment like the earth, you be giving birth/ To everything alive, baby, know your worth,” Beyoncé sings while beautifully showcasing various hues of melanin.
Prior to serving as a centerpiece to Black Is King, “Brown Skin Girl” first appeared on Beyoncé’s 2019 LP The Lion King: The Gift, which was itself a companion soundtrack to Disney’s live-action remake of The Lion King. Queen Bey provided the voice of Nala in the reimagining of the 1995 classic alongside Donald Glover (Simba), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Scar), James Earl Jones (Mufasa) and more.
