TSR We Global: Africa no dey carry last oooo!!! Everyone is ready to see The Lion King movie which hits theaters this Friday. That being said, some are even more excited to hear ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ album executive produced by Queen Bey herself!

The album features many African artists such as Busisiwa and Moonchild Sanelly from South Africa, Salatiel from Cameroon, Shatta Wale from Ghana, Nigerian artists Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Tekno, Yemi Alade, Mr Eazi, and Burna Boy. If some of y’all aren’t familiar with these artists, first of all wyd? Secondly you’re about to be put ON on if you haven’t already.

Notably, Bey also features American artists Jay Z (of course), Kendrick Lamar, Tierra Whack and Pharrell to name a few. Even our lil sis Blue Ivy will have a lil sumn’ sumn’ on the album!


Peep what Bey says about making sure she used actual African artist with their authentic sounds so she wouldn’t have to imitate the sounds of Africa.
