Beyoncé unveiled her latest visual album, Black Is King, at 3:00 a.m. on Friday (July 31) and famous members of the Beyhive are buzzing over the much-hyped release.

“Beyoncé, thats it send tweet,” wrote Zara Larsson on Twitter upon seeing the film, while Queen Bey’s proteges Chloe x Halle tweeted, “black is king really comes out tonight omg” leading up to the premiere.

And speaking of premieres, Lizzo threw her very own premiere party at home to celebrate the release of Black Is King, and documented the entire thing on her Instagram Stories. The affair came complete with a shimmering black carpet, a “What Would Beyoncé Do?” cake and catering by Munchies Vegan Diner.
