Beyoncé is celebrating her role as ‘Nala’ in The Lion King with a brand new inspirational song titled “Spirit.” The Grammy-winning music superstar debuted her self proclaimed “love letter to Africa” during Robin Robert‘s ABC Special Tuesday night.
The Queen, who still can’t believe she is starring in the film, executive produced the soundtrack for the film which features her Lion King co-star Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) along with her husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy Carter. It also features Pharrell, Kendrick Lamar and 070 Shake.
In addition, the project also features collaborations with an array of African artists and musicians including Moonchild Sanelly, Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy and Mr Eazi.
The Lion King opens in theaters Friday July 19.
