Beyonce’s Lion King album is due out this Friday and the album features numerous African artists. The 14-song album features Beyonce collaborating with husband, JAY-Z, Pharrell, Kendrick Lamar, and Childish Gambino.
The Lion King: The Gift also boasts performances from Tekno, Yemi Alade, Mr. Eazi, Burna Boy, Wizkid, Moonchild Sanelly, Busiswa, Salatiel, Shatta Wale, and Tiwa Savage.
In a rare interview, Beyonce sat down with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts to talk about the album, saying, “The soundtrack is a love letter to Africa, I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa. Not just use some of the sounds and do my interpretation of it. I wanted it to be authentic about what is beautiful about the music in Africa.”
