25 Breathtaking GIFs From Beyoncé's Powerful "Spirit" Music Video
If you're still recuperating from Beyoncé's powerful music video for "Spirit," then join the club. Much like the song, which will be on Bey's curated album The Lion King: The Gift, the breathtaking video is heavily inspired by African culture and the continent's beauty. Filmed in Arizona's Havasu Falls in the Havasupai Reservation, the clip opens with a gorgeous shot of the horizon as the Swahili phrase "Uishi kwa mda mrefu Mfalme" (meaning "Long live the King") is sung.
From there, the visuals become even more striking as Bey — who plays adult Nala in Disney's Lion King remake — her daughter Blue Ivy, and other featured dancers bring the words to life with dreamy, fluid movements and formations against the background of Mother Nature in all her glory. Keep reading to relive the video's most stunning moments through GIFs, and get ready for Beyoncé's compilation album that's set to drop on July 19!
