To celebrate the one-year anniversary of her Grammy-nominated film, Black Is King, Beyoncé shared the official music video for her songs “Mood 4 Eva” and “OTHERSIDE.” 

Black Is King premiered July 31, 2020, on Disney+, and was the visual soundtrack album to the 2019 film The Lion King: The Gift. It features cameos from her husband, Jay-Z, their daughter, Blue IvyNaomi CampbellKelly Rowland, Bey’s mother, Tina Lawson, and more. 

The theme is animal print in the “Mood 4 Eva” visual. Beyoncé can be seen in a sparkling cheetah-print hat and gown with a slit up to her right thigh. There are also scenes of Bey sitting on the hood of a cheetah-print vehicle dressed in a cheetah-print jumpsuit and kids in zebra-print suits. The over-seven-minute video ends with Bey fabulously wearing a robe with dollar bills printed all over it and sipping champagne while sitting next to her unbothered husband.

Bey and Jay-Z’s twins, Rumi and Sir, appear in the “OTHERSIDE” visual to symbolically explain Simba’s journey back to the Pride Lands in The Lion King story. 

The “Mood 4 Eva” and “OTHERSIDE” videos are available on Beyoncé’s YouTube channel.

On another note, Beyoncé has received one of the highest honors from Rolling Stone, which ranked her 2016 “Formation” visual #1 on its “100 Greatest Music Videos” list.
