This Friday, Beyoncé will be releasing The Lion King: The Gift, a companion album for Disney’s upcoming live-action film.

Beyoncé, who voices Nala in the live-action remake, serves as the album’s executive producer and curator. The Lion King: The Gift features 14 tracks, jam-packed with guest appearances by JAY-Z, Lion King co-star Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Blue Ivy, WizKid, St. Jhn, Pharrell, Tierra Whack, Tiwa Savage, Jessie Reyez, Burna Boy, Mr. Eazi, and 070 Shake.

“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 Beyoncé to 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.”

The Lion King: The Gift will accompany the film’s theatrical release, Friday, July 19.
