Yes, you read the headline correctly! Beyonce has called on ‘black and brown people of different cultures, nationalities, ethnicities, genders and ages’ to come and tell their stories as they begin the shoot for “Brown skin girl” video.
This was a report published by British tabloid, Daily Mail on October 31, 2019. In the report, Sarah Packer writes that Beyonce was calling on ‘black and brown people of different cultures, nationalities, ethnicities, genders and ages’ to come and tell their stories. The video is currently being shot in a number of locations across London. Some of them are Catford and Thamesmead.
Another Nigerian named Jenn Nkiru will direct the video. She is a Nigerian born in Peckham, England. She worked with Beyonce and her husband, Jay Z on their smash hit single, ‘Apesh*t’ in 2018. The incredible video shot at the Louvre was directed by Nkiru.
You might remember that the song was one of the Africa-centric tracks on Beyonce’s album, The Lion King: The Gift. It also features Beyonce’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter and GØDD COMPLEXx artist, SAINt Jhn.
