The Beyhive went wild when Black Is King finally released on Disney+ on Friday, July 31.

Late Saturday night, Adele took to her official Instagram account and share a photo of herself enjoying Beyoncé's new album Black is King.

The three kids make several appearances throughout the film.

Black is King, which reimagines the story of the The Lion King with a focus on a young boy, is meant to "shift the global perception of the word black", the singer said in a message marking its release.

"We're grateful to Beyonce for this celebration of the black experience", tweeted black culture website essence.com.

Black Is King was in production for one year and features special guests such as models Aweng Ade-Chuol and Adut Akech, supermodel Naomi Campbell, Tina Knowles-Lawson, author and Academy Award-winning actor Lupita Nyong'o, singer Kelly Rowland, Pharrell Williams and JAY-Z, among others.

"Many of us want change", Beyonce wrote on Instagram, rare personal words from the guarded celebrity.

People fell hard for a softer side of the fierce showstopper revealed in the visual album, which is dedicated to Beyoncé's son, Sir Carter.

She thanked her longterm idol Beyonce for making everyone feel loved with her art.

Naturally, that's all anyone has talked about on social media.

But Beyonce also has faced criticism, especially from outside the United States, for deploying what some call stereotypical visuals of "African tradition" - face paint and feathers, for example.

"They must also speak about how it's now profitable to do such gimmicks".

One conversation being had about Black Is King is how itimplemented The Lion King in an original way, a quality Jon Favreau's live-action version may have lacked.
