Last month, we heard a snippet of a new Beyoncé song, “Be Alive,” in the King Richard trailer. Now, the full song is officially here.
A drum-heavy, forward march of a song, “Be Alive” is fittingly epic (King Richard is a biopic about Venus and Serena Williams and stars Will Smith as the girls’ father). Beyoncé harmonizes with full-bodied vocals: “Do you know how much we have pride / How hard we have to try?” Sounds like an Oscar contender to me.
Listen to “Be Alive” below.
King Richard is in theaters and HBO Max on 11/19.
