Y’all betta get into the “Spirit”! Just days before “The Lion King” hits theaters on Friday, Beyoncé dropped the visuals for the lead single off the soundtrack and her baby girl, Blue Ivy, is front and center.
The song “Spirit” comes from “The Lion King: The Gift”, the soundtrack Queen Bey helped curate for the film in which she voices the character Nala. Of the album, ‘Yonce had this to say during an interview with ABC News:
“This soundtrack is a love letter to Africa. I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa, and not just use some of the sounds and did my interpretation of it. I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa,” she said, adding that they used “a lot” of drums and “incredible new sounds mixed with some of the producers from America.”
In addition to Bey, there are several African artist featured on the project as noted by The Guradian:
“Numerous African artists appear on the album. Nigerian pop stars Tiwa Savage and Mr Eazi perform the song Keys to the Kingdom, with the latter also appearing alongside fellow Nigerians Tekno and Yemi Alade on Don’t Jealous Me. Nigeria’s Burna Boy has a solo track, Ja Ara E, while Cameroonian artist Salatiel appears alongside Beyoncé and Pharrell on Water. Other African artists include Nigeria’s Wizkid, Ghana’s Shatta Wale, and South Africa’s Busiswa and Moonchild Sanelly.”
And while you have to wait a few days to hear the full project — “The Lion King: The Gift” drops on Friday — you can watch the “Spirit” video below. Check out Blue with her auburn curls, cute little face and scene-stealing presence.
