In a twist of events, Beyoncé has been accused of copying her latest music video Spirit from South African artist Petite Noir.

Spirit comes off Beyoncé's The Lion King: The Gift album, which is her love letter to Africa. The album features South African artists Busiswa and Moonchild Sanely.  

In the video, Beyoncé can be seen dancing in the desert, standing in front of magical waterfalls and watching a beautiful sunset with a stunning mountain range in the background.

The aesthetics of the video have been praised a lot by fans, however, some have pointed out how similar the video is to Petite Noir’s visual album La Maison Noir: The Gift and The Curse.

According to the Mail and Guardian, La Maison Noir: The Gift and The Curse is "an 18-minute visual album accompanying South African artist Petite Noir’s eponymous 2018 EP".
