BOW down to Queen Nala!
By Bandook - July 11, 2019
The 23-time Grammy winner is blessing us with the new album “The Lion King: The Gift,” for which she has curated a variety of Lion King-inspired songs written by African artists. This album includes a song written and performed by Beyonce titled “Spirit,” which will also appear on the film’s soundtrack and it was released on Tuesday night following the Disney film’s exclusive premiere! You will have to wait a little more for the full album to be released on July 19.
Beyoncé said in a statement. “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.”
The uplifting track debuted tonight, and is said to be featured during a very important scene in the film involving Queen Bey’s character, Nala. The official soundtrack, produced by Hans Zimmer and Jon Favreau will be released on July 11.
Queen Bey’s new single is absolutely resilient gives a solid glimpse of the movie with it’s over rich piano, orchestral melodies and choir-tipped choruses. While there are a million reasons why we always bow down to Queen Bey, this time it is plainly for this song by the iconic Nala from The Lion King.>
