As if the song didn't already have u in our feelings, Beyoncé went and gave us a gorgeous motherland-filled visual for the new video for "Spirit".  Watch what she calls her love letter to Africa inside.

After nabbing 6 Emmy nominations earlier today for Homecoming, the Queen put out another masterpiece.

While the video premiered on ABC tonight, Beyoncé - star of the upcoming Lion King movie - explained it's not enough to simply be inspired by and talk about African culture while filming this movie.  She said aspects of various cultures should be organically incorporated, really recognized and praised.

So that's what she did.  She packed up her daughter Blue Ivy, some red wiggery for her, and some of the most amazing dancers we've ever seen and headed for the desert to film the video for her new original song from The Lion King soundtrack, "Spirit".

Beyoncé herself said during tonight's Lion King special on ABC that she didn't need to do much to showcase the continent's beauty.  Playing up bright colors and putting melanin on full display is all she needed.  A custom pearl bustier gown by Maison Alexandrine for Bey and a lavender Microwave dress for Blue didn't hurt either. Get into Bey's circle of life below:

 

The Lion King and Beyoncé's accompanying album, The Lion King: The Gift, are out this Friday.
