The Beyonce produced and collaborated album “The Lion King: The Gift” has finally dropped featuring the likes of Jay-Z and Childish Gambino. The 27-track album which was released along with the worldwide premiere of the film on Friday, July 19 runs nearly one hour.
Other features on the album include Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, and Blue Ivy.
“This is sonic cinema,” Beyoncé said about the track, via Yahoo. “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.
“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” she continued. “Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”
