Beyoncé Is Releasing Another Ivy Park x Adidas Collection

Klaudia//August 24, 2020
Beyoncé made a big splash back in January when she released her first ever Ivy Park x Adidas collection. Now, she’s reportedly ready to drop more fire alongside the apparel brand that could hit shelves soon.

The Instagram account @yankeekicks shared a first look at the latest Ivy Park x Adidas Nite Jogger in “Dark Green/Frozen Yellow,” which initially was reported to drop during the holiday season later this year.

According to the pictures, the show will feature a mostly dark green Primeknit upper, while the toe will feature a neon yellow colorway. A large “Ivy Park” hand tag is also attached to the heel.

Details beyond the IG posting have been extremely scarce. So far, there isn’t a publicly known release date. See the latest Ivy Park x Adidas collaboration below.

Ibra Ake Talks Working With Beyoncé on 'Black Is King'

Klaudia//August 24, 2020
How was it collaborating with Beyoncé in terms of her imparting her vision, but then giving you the space to go and pursue yours?

It was a really great experience just to have the support from her in terms of resources and the attention it was going to be given because there's so much great work that is made out there that doesn't really get distribution. And another thing was just how respectful she was. I wish all directors and producers of culturally-sensitive material treated it with a level of seriousness that she did. There were so many conversations about what things meant. If it appeared in the shot, she wanted the meaning of what it meant, the history of it, even if it's like a mural, she wanted to know who painted it. I've never produced something and had to also be an archeologist at the same time.

There were a lot of days where I was like, "Oh yeah, I've never really thought about, even though that's part of my culture, I've never really thought about the actual history of what that means." And so, that lent itself to a lot of cool conversations and a lot of really cool moments. We were discussing cultural appropriation and I sent her clips of a Nollywood movie that is named after her. There were just like a lot of just weird conversations that were bouncing around during the project that led to certain choices being made. I really enjoyed all the questions she would ask me, because a lot of them I didn't really have an answer to. It's just some of those things where it's part of your culture, part of your life, but you're like why am I drawn to this? Why am I attracted to this? Like, what does this mean to me? Or what does this mean to other people in my life or other people with my identity, things like that. So, that was probably the most interesting part about collaborating with her, how much she wanted to know and understand. I've never really had a director or producer just be such a scholar. And even still, she was telling me that she had learned about other people and places and things making this project.

Beyoncé's 'Lion King' Songs Roar On The R&B Charts

Klaudia//August 15, 2020
Beyoncé never waits too long in between projects, and while she may not have a new album out, fans are flocking to an updated version of a 2019 release thanks to the Queen’s latest visual masterpiece...and that has led to her dominating a number of Billboard charts yet again.

This week, many of the tracks featured on the singer-songwriter’s The Lion King: The Gift album either rise or return entirely (or even debut) on over half a dozen of Billboard’s rankings. They perform best on the R&B-only lists, where she has established herself as a force to be reckoned with.

Here is a look at how the tunes featured on the deluxe edition of The Lion King: The Gift perform this week on the R&B rankings.

R&B/Hip-Hop Songs

As Megan Thee Stallion and Bey’s “Savage,” which isn’t connected to The Lion King: The Gift at all, dips to No. 6, Beyoncé’s own “Black Parade” re-enters the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs race at No. 47. The track was originally released as a standalone cut earlier this year, but now it’s been included in the deluxe edition of the singer-songwriter’s latest full-length.

Black Is King Stylist & Co-Director on Project's Initial Concept

Klaudia//August 15, 2020
How long was production from start to finish?

Zerina Akers: My part, wardrobe, was about three months – concept to finish. But there are people who have worked on it longer. Beyoncé had the idea to do a much smaller project and it grew from there. She was like, ‘I want to start this thing.’ So I started going into fabric stores and swatching things that spoke to me as I listened to the music in my headphones. And then I had to get on the horn and call my counterpart who handles a lot of the market. I just called everyone I knew that could make things. I hired a whole new team of seven people.

When you first started going to those fabric markets, what was the brief at the time?

Zerina Akers: At that point, Beyoncé wanted to do quick bites. It was originally meant to be a few music videos. She wanted to shoot a minute of each song — a small piece to promote the album. And then it evolved and snowballed. It’s a Beyoncé project, so course we knew it would have a certain magnitude. But we had no idea at the outset that it would become what it is now. But most of all, I wanted her to feel good and empowered as she was performing. That was the most important thing for me. That she feels great.

Beyoncé Dominates The World Songs Chart With Her 'Lion King' Smashes

Klaudia//August 14, 2020
About two weeks ago, Beyoncé changed the game once again by releasing her new film Black Is King, which premiered exclusively on Disney+ on July 31. The artistic venture uses her 2019 album The Lion King: The Gift as both a soundtrack and inspiration for a new story, and as countless fans of the singer-songwriter rushed to watch what she’d come up with this time around, the tracks from the full-length benefit immensely on at least one Billboard chart this frame.

As the album holds the No. 1 spot on the World Albums chart (as well as the Soundtracks and Top R&B Albums charts), Beyoncé also rules this week’s World Digital Song Sales ranking with the tracks from her latest project, which all return to the roster thanks to impressive sales during the past tracking frame, with a number of tunes hitting new high points on the list.

The Queen narrowly missed landing another No. 1 from the studio effort, as “Already,” which now seems to be the focus cut from the set, bounces back onto the World Digital Song Sales list at No. 2. It comes in behind only BTS’s “My Time,” which vaults from No. 15 to the highest rung.

Bey occupies three positions inside the top five, as “My Power” and “Find Your Way Back” land at Nos. 4 and 5, respectively. Looking at the entire top 10, the superstar lays claim to half of all the available rungs in the region, as “Brown Skin Girl” and “Mood 4 Eva” settle at Nos. 7 and 10, respectively.

Of the 10 The Lion King: The Gift tracks that are present on this week’s 25-spot World Digital Song Sales chart, only three don’t credit Beyoncé as an artist, though she was involved in their inclusion on the set and their current popularity.

'The Lion King: The Gift' Returns to Top 10 on Billboard 200

Klaudia//August 10, 2020
Beyoncé’s The Lion King: The Gift album re-enters the Billboard 200 chart at No. 10, following the July 31 premiere of Black Is King on Disney+.

The set earned 27,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Aug. 6 (up 1,462%), according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The album originally debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the Aug. 3, 2019-dated chart.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new Aug. 15-dated chart (where The Lion King: The Gift re-enters at No. 10) will be posted in full on Billboard's website on Aug. 11.

Black Is King is based on the music of The Lion King: The Gift, and was written, directed and executive produced by Beyoncé. The Lion King: The Gift album also benefits from its reissue on July 31 with three additional tracks.

The Lion King: The Gift album was first released on July 19, 2019, as a companion project to last year’s film remake of The Lion King (in which Beyoncé voices the character Nala).

Dancer Papi Ojo Talks Working With Beyonce On Black Is King

Klaudia//August 7, 2020
There are not many performers who can steal even an iota of the spotlight away from Beyoncé when she’s locked in. But in Black is King, her new visual album released last week on Disney+, an intriguing figure returns again and again to demand viewers’ attention. He wanders gorgeous African landscapes pensively, eyelids heavy and skin painted so blue as to appear almost translucent; he dances side by side with Beyoncé, hips jerking, tongue flailing outward.

That man is Stephen “Papi” Ojo, a self-taught 22-year-old Nigerian-born performer who has quietly played an outsize role in bringing African dance to American stages. He flanked Rihanna’s right shoulder at the 2018 Grammys as their gwara gwara dance (from South Africa) became a moment of international fascination; he taught Janet Jackson the kupe (from Ghana) for her music video “Made For Now,” a vibrant whirlwind of diasphoric triumph.

And in Black is King, Ojo is the most prominent face beyond that of its headlining star. He plays the “blue man,” who represents the subconscious of the protagonist prince and the power of African dance. It’s another unexpected moment of ascendance for a self-described “boy from Lagos” who has experienced harrowing personal tragedy and is still searching for financial stability: just a few months ago, he was packaging boxes overnight at an Amazon warehouse in Staten Island.

“I have to make sure my people are properly represented,” Ojo says. “The fact that we have a legend like Beyoncé doing these moves will make people generations from now want to research them and think, ‘If Beyoncé is doing it, it must be important! It must have some kind of meaning.’”
