Beyonce featured six Nigerian artistes in her new album, The Lion King: The Gift, which is the musical accompaniment to her new Disney movie.
The Nigerian artistes include Yemi Alade, Burna Boy, Mr. Eazi, Tekno, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage as well as Ghana’s Shatta Wale.
Beyonce confirmed that the new album is scheduled for release on Friday.
Talking about the album, Beyonce said, “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.”
