Album Stream: Beyonce’s ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ Ft. Kendrick Lamar, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Jay-Z, & More
Beyonce has unleashed ‘The Lion King: The Gift.’
Timed to arrive in tandem with Disney‘s live-action remake of ‘The Lion King’ movie, the compilation set sees the superstar curate a “love letter to Africa” comprised of songs inspired by the flick (which she stars in as Nala).Array
Billed as “sonic cinema,” the LP’s sound is steeped in Affrobeats, R&B, and Pop.
To assist her vision, Queen Bey assembled a colossal list of collaborators from the Afro diaspora and beyond.
Indeed, featured are the likes of Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy, Shatta Wale, Tekno, and Yemi Alade.
Joining them are US titans such as Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Pharrell Williams, and Childish Gambino – who stars alongside Bey in the film as Simba. Rising stars Tierra Whack and Jessie Reyez also appear.
