Last week, Disney Studios announced that “The Lion King: The Gift” would be released on Friday alongside the local release of the film and would feature global artists.
The 14-track project, titled The Lion King: The Gift, was announced earlier this month along with the release of its first single “Spirit.”
” This soundtrack is a love letter to Africa,”
Beyoncé said. “I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa and not just use some of the sounds and do my interpretation of it. I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa.”
This is why she featured a number of African artists. Local artists Busiswa and Moonchild Sanelly are featured on Beyoncé’s album.
