Beyoncé is here with a new album titled The Lion King: The Gift to celebrate the blockbuster’s debut. Available for download nd streaming, the new music project lists 14 tracks with features from a whole list of African music acts.
Revealing the tracklist for Beyonce upcoming project today, Beyoncé got us all excited for the end of the week. The Houston native enlisted some stellar talent for the body of work, including her husband Jay-Z, Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Tierra Whack, Jessie Reyez, WizKid, Mr Eazi, 070 Shake, and her daughter Blue Ivy Carter. Spanning fourteen songs long, Bey will appear on the majority of the cuts on the album.
The soundtrack to The Lion King arrived last week. As with The Gift, it includes Beyoncé’s new song “Spirit.” The CGI live-action remake of the The Lion King hits theaters July 18. The album seems to be set up like Drake’s More Life or, more appropriately, Kendrick Lamar’s Black Panther soundtrack, with Beyoncé not always credited as the lead artist and sometimes not listed at all. Beyoncé and Glover’s new version of “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” — that’s part of the official Lion King soundtrack.
Beyoncé said in the statement announcing the new album. “This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.”
