Beyoncé dropped the video on the Good
Morning America show on Monday,
accompanied by a statement. “It was so
important to me in ‘Brown Skin Girl’ that we represented all different shades of brown,” she said. “We wanted every character to be shot in a regal light — Jenn Nkiru came up with the black debutantes. It was important that we are all in this together and we’re all celebrating each other.” Added Nkiru: “My greatest inspiration comes from black people, specifically black women.”
The new video, which runs for over six minutes, is from her ‘Black Is King’ visual album based on the soundtrack from 2019 remake of ‘The Lion King’ film.
