Beyoncé has released The Lion King: The Gift album with Ghanaian musician Shatta Wale on the project with a song titled ‘Already’.
The 23-time Grammy Award-winning superstar announced she would release an album inspired by the 2019 remake of The Lion King with influence from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.
She featured other African acts including Tekno, Yemi Alade, Mr. Eazi, Burna Boy, Wiz Kid and Tiwa Savage.
Shatta Wale’s song with Beyoncé titled ‘Already’ has the ‘Dancehall King’s’ musical style as the two musicians sing about a king.
Beyoncé at some point sings ‘King already, my baby you know it … shine already, it’s time already!’ with Shatta Wale responding ‘royalty says don’t you know know know’.
The Queen B also featured her husband Jay-Z, daughter Blue Ivy Carter and others like Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino on the album.
