Are you ready lions?
Crowned “a love letter to Africa,” this second album for The Lion King is executive produced by Beyoncé and includes 14-majestic songs inspired by the film. The global icon, who plays adult Nala in the remake, will roar alone on four tracks, including “Spirit,” which also appears on the actual album score.
On the lion’s share of the LP, Beyoncé is joined by special music guests from various genres, including Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Childish Gambino, Pharrell, Tierra Whack, Burna Boy, Jessie Reyez, WizKid, Tekno, Tiwa Savage and many more.
Blue Ivy Carter, the eldest of Beyoncé’s three children, is featured on track eight “Broken Skin Girl.”
The Lion King: The Gift will be available on Friday, July 19. The actual film premieres in theaters everywhere on Thursday, July 18.
