The Lion King: Details On Beyonce & Donald Glover Song Collaboration Revealed

Published: Thursday 24th Jan 2019 by Sam

As anticipated movies go, few can rival the almighty buzz surrounding ‘The Lion King.’ Not just theatrically, but musically.

For, with the Disney production being anchored by Donald Glover and Beyonce respectively, all eyes and ears are primed to take in what awaits sonically from the release (which hits the big screen on July 19th).

Details have been scarce, however Billy Eichner – who plays Timone – revealed one song that the music titans have officially teamed up for.

Full story below…

During a visit to Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live,’ the actor confirmed that he performs an intro to ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’ – which builds into a colossal collaboration on the song between Bey and Glover.

Penned and performed by Elton John in 1994 for the original film, the track has sold 11 million copies worldwide and has become a staple in both the movie and stage incarnations of ‘The Lion King.’

Needless to say, it’ll be intriguing to hear the contemporary spin Bey and co put not just on this song but on the entire soundtrack. We’re also super buzzed about all new material too.

Roll on July!

    Every time I see stuff like this I think how Usher not the one in these movies with Beyonce. How is Usher not the one performing at the super bowl with Beyonce.Say what you want about Usher but you can’t tell me that Usher isn’t a better performer than Bruno and still a bigger star than Donald Glover.

    • Gurl January 24, 2019

      Welllll, Usher missed his biggest chance to work with Beyonce in the biggest film of all time…Dreamgirls. He turned down the role of C.C. So he has no one to blame but himself.

      • SMH January 25, 2019

        LOL Gurl shut up please, Dreamgirls was not the biggest film of any time, and Usher is still a bigger star than Bruno, Donald Glover, or Jay Z’s wife combined. You sound stupid.

    • SMH January 25, 2019

      Usher is very selective with what he does. He doesn’t just hop on anything because its the latest fad like beyonce does. He doesn’t do anything with her because he doesn’t want or need to.

  8. DanYiel Iman January 24, 2019

    I’m excited about this!! Surely both will been Key & i’m hoping folks will sing on key at the movie theater…??
