Beyoncé calls for ‘black and brown’ people as she films video for ‘Brown Skin Girl’ in London


Ever since Beyoncé released The Lion King: The Gift in honour of her role as Nala in the Lion King remake in July, fans have been patiently waiting for videos to some of the iconic songs on the album.

Well, the wait is over for the ‘Beyhive’ as Daily Mail reports that the Grammy-award winning singer is currently filming the video to ‘Brown Skin Girl’ on a number of South London estates.

The mother of three and her casting team have also reportedly called for ‘black and brown people of different cultures, nationalities, ethnicities, genders and ages’ all with backgrounds in London to come ‘tell their stories’ in the video.

‘Her casting team called for all different family structures to apply including ‘blended, single parent, queer and adopted. Trained actors and dancers were also wanted but the main focus is on showcasing a variety of body shapes and ages, from as young as six months to the elderly,’ a source tells MailOnline.

The video for ‘Brown Skin Girl’ which features Nigeria’s Wizkid, Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy and SAINt Jhn, is been directed by a Nigerian, Jenn Nkiru who worked with the Carters in the past on their song ‘Apeshit’.
