Diplo Teases Beyonce x Major Lazer Collaboration For ‘The Lion King’ Project

Published: Wednesday 17th Jul 2019 by Sam

This Friday sees Beyonce unleash her new project ‘The Lion King: The Gift.’

Arriving in tandem with the hotly anticipated ‘Lion King’ movie, the companion compilation boasts all-new songs from Queen Bey as well as top-tier talent from the Afro and Western diasporas.

Thus far, the featured acts have been revealed and include the likes of Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Shatta Wale, Burna Boy, and Yemi Alade. Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, and Pharrell also appear.

Joining them, it seems, is Major Lazer. 

Details below…

Taking to Twitter, Diplo playfully shared a tweet that suggests his group will be appearing on the set. He wrote:

“I’ve heard rumors of a Beyonce & Major Lazer collab”

The producer capped the post with a Lion emoji, so as to leave no doubt about the location of the creative pairing (Bey’s ‘Lion King’ soundtrack):

It wouldn’t be the first time the producer himself has teamed with Bey. He helmed the bodacious bops ‘End Of Time’ and ‘Run The World’ – both of which fit sonically with the Afrocentric sound Bey has cultivated for this project. Could more of that fiery flavor be incoming? We sure hope so!

    • LUCKI July 17, 2019

      Whitney is DEAD and GONE… and don’t be fooled, if she were living today she would not have been booked because her voice was a shell of its former self. No shade because she will forever be the voice, but it is what it is/was what it was!!! Stop trolling on every post.

      • Haterz Gon‘ Hate July 17, 2019

        RIGHT??? Dude has serious issues with abandonment from folks he wasn’t even related to – why must he rinse and repeat the same old line in EVERY Beyoncé post? Seriously – get a life – Whitney was a once in a lifetime talent but she is DEAD and ain’t nobody out here comparing any modern day artist to her accept YOU. F.O.H. and fix your life instead of worryin‘ ‘about others ???

      • Jasmine July 17, 2019

        Not true at all. Whitney had a very strong voice. What you heard towards the end of her life was a voice muffled by heavy cigarette smoking. If Whitney had quit cigarettes she would be back in top form vocally.

        At Whitney’s worst she sang better than all these heffers (with the exception of Tamela Mann):



      • Jasmine1999 July 17, 2019

        Yea this person is crazy, I believe Brent Christopher, this stupid poster and Jasmine are all the same person because the Jasmine account always defends the other 2.

      • Jasmine July 17, 2019

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED July 17, 2019

      Whitney’s voice is SOOOOO BORING to me lol bey would be completely irrelevant NY now if bey had a voice like CRACKney.

      • Oh plz July 17, 2019

        Shut yo fat ass up. No one asked you your opinion of Queen Whitney. If we want advice regarding hamburgers, pigs feet, chitlins, and bacon grease, we’ll ask your disgusting ass.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED July 17, 2019

      Beys name is BIGGER than CrackPipe Whitney which is why u haters claim Bey to be responsible for the rotten tomatoes score lol when it’s a CGI Animated film ? Bey is far more successful than Crackney.

      • Oh plz July 17, 2019

        Try again, fatso.
        Whitney’s Voice >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Beyonce

    • Willis Chuks July 17, 2019

      U r one bitter individual aren’t ya!
      U need to fix your soul…..
      Cuz it came out damaged!

    • Jasmine1999 July 17, 2019

      That explains it, you live in a 3rd world country and this is your only outlet to comment on TGJ Jasmine what a shame

      • Jasmine July 18, 2019

        Yeah I do live in a ‘3rd world country’. It is called Mexifornia. I live in one of the wealthiest zip codes in the us and as soon as I go 10 miles from my estate I see Mexican poor people and white trash living in vans polluting the good school district my property taxes pay for. I’ve been talking to my husband about moving. Where we gonna move I don’t know but I’m sick of all these poor asses living so close by. It is so bad my neighborhood had to get a special task force to ship homeless peasants off to next door Malibu so that our property values don’t suffer from all the peasant like activities. Where do u live? Hopefully it is better than here in Southern California!

  2. Lex July 17, 2019

  3. Lex July 17, 2019

    Black Queen doing what needs to be done . Which the haters would take a month break and find a new hobby instead of hating and let us enjoy Beyoncé in peace

    • Pedonika July 17, 2019

      And I „which“ you knew how to spell but I guess that’s too much to ask for a beyhîv+. Like fave like fan.

      #OnlyDumbPeopleListenToBeyonce #ScientificallyProven

      • Jasmine1999 July 17, 2019

        B*****+ ? You’re a f****** lunatic loser to try and use that to take people down. Wow and TGJ needs to be policing their comment section. Why is the comment section full of lunatics?

      • Jasmine The Real Princess July 17, 2019

        Stop pretending to be me!!!

        I am the real jasmine!
        Don’t be mad the sis pointed out the beyhive‘s illiteracy. Y’all should go get some education instead of defending the woman who gave y’all the same concert routines her whole career.

      • Jasmine1999 July 17, 2019

        Shut up you lunatic! There’s are minions of m Jasmines I am convinced you are one on the mentally challenged homeless folks at the local library to be this damn wild on the comment section of a gossip blog.

      • Jasmine1999 July 17, 2019

        Millions of jasmines

      • Jasmine July 18, 2019

        Shut it troll! I am the only Jasmine on TGJ. I am Queen B Jasmine. The rest are all fakes who loathe me and want to be me

  5. JOHNVIDAL July 17, 2019

    She just wanted a Black Panther type of moment attached to her somehow so badly LOL Too bad that ballad she has released has not got the punch legendary voices and songs have.

  6. Dc July 17, 2019

    For alllll the press she gets her hits and sales should be wayyyyy better

    • Haterz Gon‘ Hate July 17, 2019

      That‘s like saying: “She has a convertible Porsche, but it can’t fly though can it“. Like, she already made her great great great grandchildren millionaires, what are more sales and hits going to do for her at this point? Will People stop buying her albums or attending her tours if she doesn’t get another number 1 single??? Even is she scored another 10 number one singles – you would be no better off and she would remain unbothered ??‍♂️

      • Gworl Bye July 17, 2019

        Nice excuse, nobody cares how much money she makes except you brain dead roach hives. beyonce s sales are pitiful compared to the hype she gets. Thats why she never makes the Greatest of All Time lists like Rihanna, Taylor and Adele.

      • Haterz Gon‘ Hate July 17, 2019

        But your fruit fly ? brain is soooo terribly confused – FOCUS illegitime one on the question that debunks your terribly low IQ based assertion: WHO will benefit from Beyoncé scoring more number 1 singles and sales???? I’ll wait ⏳⏳⏳⏳⏳?

      • Dc July 17, 2019

        My point is not what she did in the past but y’all act like she’s the biggest thing in music in 2019 and she’s not y’all always promoting her acting like she’s god and she’s not even doing Adele numbers she’s overrated and it shows in her sales

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. July 17, 2019

        @Haterz.. – You sound mad. hahaahaha Good!

    • Tyty July 17, 2019

      You didn’t answer the question though who will benefit from beyonce scoring a number1??? With no precious number 1 billboard single, she still managed to make 80 million dollars the last year more than let’s say Rihanna who is guaranteed a number 1 every era. Again what difference does a number 1 single do for beyonce career at this point? She scored multiple Emmys without a precious number 1 single y’all covert so much.

      • Tyty July 17, 2019

        And stop using Adele that’s pathetic Adele just like Taylor swift benefits from white privilege they are as equally if not more talented big black singers who don’t even get the quarter of sales or attention Adele does. Didn’t Adele give up a grammy she knew she didn’t deserve and give it to beyonce? Try again.

      • Datredd23 July 17, 2019

        Rihanna is still worth way more then Beyonce so let’s not pit them together please

      • Tyty July 18, 2019

        Obviously, you can’t read I was talking about how number 1 has zero impact on beyonce career. Beyonce still made more money than Rihanna this year. It wasn’t a comparison of wealth it was a statement on the importance of number 1 single in ones career.

  7. #TheTruth July 17, 2019

    What’s up with ya’ll comparing singers like your life depends on it ?
    Whitney is talented, Beyoncé is talented, appreciate talent. Period. There’s room for everybody. That’s pathetic.

  8. Xtina4life July 17, 2019

    Dam the lion king reviews just went to 58 on rottentomatoes ???

    • Jasmine1999 July 17, 2019

      That’s fine it’s not solely on Beyonce as y’all kept saying she has a small part so don’t try to blame the movie not being a 100% on her. Must be exhausting to hold such negativity and hate for someone you don’t know or claim not to like

  9. Ropeburn July 17, 2019

    LOL! Girl Diplo can’t save you! He is not the “hot” producer of the moment anymore like he was 7-8 years ago. You might as well get David Guetta and Benny Benassi while you at it. ?

  10. Gavinluvsbeyonce July 17, 2019

    I lived for the beat in “end if time” and I def Rock out to “run the world” (girls) …. I’m ready to hear all these songs on the soundtrack. Bless it Bey ????☀️?
