After revealing the tracklisting earlier this week, Beyoncé returns with her brand new album, The Lion King: The Gift.
Serving as a musical ode to the Disney live-action theatrical film where she plays an older Nala, Beyoncé taps on the services of Lion King co-star Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino, Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Blue Ivy, WizKid, St. Jhn, Pharrell, Tierra Whack, Tiwa Savage, Jessie Reyez, Burna Boy, Mr. Eazi, and 070 Shake.
Beyoncé also released a video to the album’s lead single, “Spirit.”
“The soundtrack is a love letter to Africa and I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa, and not just use some of the sounds and did my own interpretation of it,” said Beyoncéto Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview on Good Morning America. “I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa.”
