American singer, songwriter and actress Beyonce has featured Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale on ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ Album. The album also features a number of African artists including Tekno, Tiwa Savage, Shatta Wale, Yemi Alade, Wizkid, Mr. Eazi. The album will be released on July 19, 2019


The Lion King: The Gift notably includes a large number of our favorite acts like Tekno, Yemi Alade, Mr Eazi, Burna Boy, Wizkid, Moonchild Sanelly, Busiswa, Shatta Wale, and Tiwa Savage, often in collaboration with the other artists on the album.

We’ve already heard “Spirit” and can now look forward to tracks like “Don’t Jealous Me” (a collaboration between Tekno, Yemi Alade & Mr. Eazi), “Brown Skin Girl” (Wizkid with Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé, and Saint Jhn), “Already” (Beyoncé and Shatta Wale), “My Power” (Busiswa, Yemi Alade, Moonchild Sanelly, and Tierra Whack with Beyoncé), and many more.

“The soundtrack is a love letter to Africa,” Beyoncé says to ABC. “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.”
