Blue, is that you?!
Beyoncé just dropped a new music video titled "SPIRIT" that features her and Jay-Z's 7-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, and OMG, you guys—she's growing up before our very eyes.
The video shows scenes from Disney's The Lion King, out July 19, interspersed with sweeping, spectacular shots (some of the Grand Canyon) of Queen Bey with a bevy of backup dancers in a multitude of colorful outfits.
But our favorite shot, obvi, features little lady Blue Ivy with curly red hair and a lavender outfit that matches perfectly with her mom Beyoncé's lilac and red gown. As Blue Ivy walks up to her mom, she places her hand in Beyoncé's palm, then kneels next to her before taking a long, hard gaze into the camera. We have chills.
The song is featured in the upcoming "live-action" CGI remake of the classic animated film, where Beyoncé voices the lioness Nala.
"The concept of the video is to show how God is the painter, and natural beauty in nature needs no art direction," Beyoncé explained during Tuesday night's The Lion King: Can You Feel The Love Tonight primetime special from ABC, where she debuted the video. "It's the beauty of color, the beauty of melanin, the beauty of tradition."
"Spirit" is the first track from The Lion King: The Gift, a compilation album produced and curated by Beyoncé as a musical tribute to the movie. The album, out on the same day as the movie release, July 19, will also feature Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino and Pharrell, as well as JAY-Z and Blue Ivy. The album is separate from the original motion picture soundtrack for the movie that was released a few days ago.
The surprise music video release comes just days after Beyoncé and Jay-Z were introduced to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry at The Lion King U.K. premiere. The two couples hugged and swapped parenting advice, with Queen Bey addressing the Duchess of Sussex as "my princess."
All we know: If Archie grows up as fast as Blue Ivy, he's going to be attending movie premieres with his parents in no time.
