It’s almost time to hear the roar of ‘The Lion King.’
Disney‘s live-action take on the 1994 classic arrives in theaters on July 19th and promises to be a blockbuster of epic proportions.Array
One of key components of the flick is its music, which fuses songs we’ve know and love with new gems courtesy of Elton John and Beyonce – the latter of whom stars in the film as Nala.
Secrecy has surrounded the diva’s original song – which is still billed as “TBA” on the soundtrack.
What is known is that the cut was worked on by Bey, alongside ‘Lion King’ music maestros Hans Zimmer, Tim Rice, and Lebo M.
The latter appeared on an African TV show this week and opened up – all be it cautiously – about the mysterious song. And it seems like its seismic in size.
Speaking on Queen Bey’s track, he said:
“I can be ambitious and say I have a feeling the song just might be bigger than Circle Of Life.”
His words are notable given that he actually performs on the original version.
With such a description, we’re even more hyped.
‘The Lion King’ soundtrack is unleashed a week before the movie on July 11th.
