Be your own king
Make nobody come rule your world
Long live the king, you a king, you know it
Top everything, everything, you know it
Show them the way, you know it
You know it, you know it

    General CommentBeyonce is known as the Queen of pop and her Beyhive has been thirsty for a new hit like “Lemonade”. Her new song “Already” dropped hours before her visual album, Black is King, on Disney+. This gave fans a sneak preview for the album that dropped July 31st. “Already” features Ghanaian artist Shatta Wale and Jamaican-American EDM master Major Lazer. The song originally appeared on her The Lion King: The Gift album, where she starred as the voice of Nala. In this song, Beyonce focuses on emphasizing diverse beats from around Africa. The purpose of the song is to highlight the rich elements of Black history and African tradition, while bringing it to the 21st century. The song is best summed up with the lyrics, “Long live the king/you a king/ you know it”.
