Beyonce is shooting visuals in London for her upcoming video “Brown Skin Girls.” Peep the casting call and more inside…

Calling all the “Brown Skin Girls” in London!

Beyonce was reportedly recently in London filming her new music video “Brown Skin Girls,” hitting up several South London estates. According to DailyMail, the 38-year-old entertainer chose to shoot at several different locations in Catford and Thamesmead. Bey’s crew sought out several locations for the shoot, including a spot near a local prison - HM Prison - in Thameside.

The song, which is featured on her album The Lion King: The Gift, became an instant hit, launching a #BrownSkinGirlsChallenge on social media.

Now, you can’t shoot a music video for “Brown Skin Girls” without some brown skin girls, so her alleged casting team, according to the Daily Mail, issued a call for “black and brown people of different cultures, nationalities, ethnicities, genders, ages and backgrounds in London.”

On the track, Bey name dropped Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o and supermodel Naomi Campbell. It’s unclear if the ladies will be featured in the visuals. A source spilled to DM that it was important for Mrs. Carter to incorporate real-life brown skin girls to represent the “essence of the song.”

“She may refer to Naomi Campbell and Lupita Nyong'o in the track but she was keen to have normal people step forward and tell their stories,” a source told the publication. “Her casting team called for all different family structures to apply including 'blended, single parent, queer and adopted.”

The source continued, “Trained actors and dancers were also wanted but the main focus is on showcasing a variety of body shapes and ages, from as young as six months to the elderly. Shooting started today in London but as yet Beyoncé is only going to star in the side of the film recorded in America."

Bey's 7-year-old daughter Blue Ivy will also likely make a cameo as she is featured singing on the track. Saint Jhn and Wizkid also lend their talents on the song.

The “Brown Skin Girls” video - supposedly - is being directed by film producer Jenn Nkiru, who previously worked with Bey and her husband Jay-Z on their hit track “Apesh*t.”

We wonder if Meghan Markle was the inspiration to shoot in London.  At least a lil bit.

Nothing confirmed from beys camp but y'all know making music announcements is not how she rolls. It's always a surprise. Last night...
