While a few lyrics were previously heard, the Beyhive was delighted to hear the rest, which Smith previously raved was the perfect fit for his film.
‘The marriage of a movie and a song is a kind of magic that’s unmatched in entertainment,’ the two-time Oscar winner, 53, told Entertainment Weekly.
Unheard lyrics include: ‘And can’t nobody knock it if they tried / This is hustle personified / Look how we’ve been fighting to stay alive.
Jay-Z’s wife also sang: ‘So when we win, we will have pride / Do you know how much we have cried? / How hard we had to fight?’
The single, which first appeared in a teaser for the long-awaited biopic about the father of Venus and Serena Williams, left fans eager for more.
Nearly halfway through the three-minute preview, which the 53-year-old Hitch star introduced alongside the tennis superstars, Queen Bey, 40, can be heard soulfully belting.
‘It feels so good to be alive, that’s why I live my life with pride,’ the track goes, with 28-time Grammy winner pleading: ‘Do you know how much we have pride? / How hard we have to try?’
The ballad perfectly accompanied the emotional trailer, which followed how Richard Williams helped train his daughters into two of the greatest tennis players of all time.
The first look at King Richard shows the struggles the athletes’ dad had to get his girls to be taken seriously in the sport.
Footage showed the actors recreating scenes of Richard and his children (played by Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton) as they practiced on a public tennis court in Compton.
The tennis prodigies grew up playing in their neighborhood on a court surface littered with scratches and holes with no water fountains or lights.
Smith palpably embodies Richard Williams’ relentless determination in making his girls the ‘next two’ Michael Jordans in clip, despite having limited tennis experience.
King Richard hits theaters November 19, 2020 as well as streaming on HBO Max.
