Beyoncé has recorded a new song for the upcoming film King Richard. “Beyoncé is heard singing: “It feels so good to be alive / That’s why I live my life with pride/ Do you know how much we have pride? / How hard we have to try?” A theme reminiscent of what is to come for the tennis stars.
Will Smith introduced the preview on social media with the help of the Williams sisters, who encouraged fans not to “miss out” on the film when it hits theaters and HBO Max in Nov. 19. Will Smith leads the tennis biopic as the as the father and coach of tennis prodigies Venus and Serena Williams (portrayed by Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton, respectively).
The latest trailer includes scenes of Richard Williams trying to get tennis clubs to accept his daughters. Despite the obstacles they face, Richard tells his wife, Oracene “Brandi” Williams, played by Aunjanue Ellis, “We’ve just got to stick to the plan. We’ve got champions in the other room.”
“Be Alive” marks Bey’s first music since “Black Parade” in June 2020. She recently hinted that new music was coming. “After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!” she told Harper’s BAZAAR.
The movie also stars Tony Goldwyn, Jon Bernthal, Andy Bean, Kevin Dunn, and Craig Tate. Take a look at the trailer.
