With the world waiting with bated breath for ‘The Lion King,’ more details have emerged about the mysterious original song recorded by Beyonce.
Full story below…
The film’s accompanying soundtrack arrives on July 11th – a week before its theatrical release – and brings with it confirmed contributions from Queen Bey and Elton John. Both of whom have cooked up all-new numbers.
Interestingly, the titles of all but one song were divulged – with said omission being Bey’s. As at writing, it still reads “TBA (to be announced).
It’s led many to believe there are big plans for the song. Something Lebo M, who is a key creator and performer in all things ‘Lion King,’ confirmed.
Now, in a new interview, the South African superstar elaborated on the track and what it was like working with Mrs Carter (who plays Nala). He said:
“There were many different parts to the song and so I found a lot of elements, including some of her work, already in place. It was just about putting everything together. The whole package is quite exceptional.
It was about linking her composition to the phonetic expression of The Lion King. That was where I came in, produced the vocal arrangement and to do some writing. It went from a good song to a good song for The Lion King.”
Our excitement is already off the Richter for both the film and its music. Roll on July 11th!
‘The Lion King,’ the live-action movie, hits theaters worldwide on July 19th.
