Salt-N-Pepa have a legal fight on their hands.
On the opposing side of the war? Their old friend Spinderella.
‘The Lion King’ is as anticipated for its cinematic brilliance as it is for its musical magnificence. And the latter is proving justified.
Moments ago, Disney released the full soundtrack for the surefire blockbuster, featuring renewed versions of songs from the 1994 classic – as well as three new numbers too.
However, it appears the centrepiece of the project is Beyonce and Donald Glover‘s take on ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight?’
The singing sensations play Nala and Simba respectively and their Pharrell produced duet appears at a pivotal part of the film.
Ahead of ‘The Lion King’s July 19th release, take a listen to ‘Can You Feel’ after the jump…
It’s here! ‘The Lion King’ soundtrack has been unleashed!
Released to accompany the July 19th release of the movie, the project features musical contributions from banner stars Beyonce and Donald Glover, as well as production efforts from Hans Zimmer, Lebo M, and Pharrell Williams.
Also featured is Elton John, whose all-new song ‘Never Too Late’ appears. It’s one of three numbers, alongside Bey’s ‘Spirit,‘ crafted for Disney’s live-action version of the 1994 classic.
The LP will be joined by Mrs Carter’s specially curated compilation ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ – featuring a slew of soon to be announced major names on exciting. It’s billed sonic cinema that’s a love letter to Africa.
For now, though, what are you waiting for? Listen to ‘The Lion King’ OST below…
Miley Cyrus glimmers in Gold on the cover of Elle Magazine‘s August 2019 issue.
The feature arrives during a busy frame for the singer, who is juggling the push for new EP ‘She Is Coming,’ her stint in Netflix hit ‘Black Mirror,’ and a slew of festival dates across the globe.
Beyond stunning in the Mario Sorrenti lensed shoot, she also opened up about her forthcoming album ‘She Is Miley Cyrus,’ her marriage to Liam Hemsworth, flaunting her sexuality, and more.
Peep pics and quotes below…
Lil Nas X has already galloped into history books multiple times over the last three months thanks to his inaugural megahit, ‘Old Town Road.’
In addition to stomping all over streaming records previously set by the likes of Drake, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and more, the 20-year-old’s seen the tune – currently #1 for its 14th consecutive week – rival the longevity and impact of some of the Billboard Hot 100’s longest running chart-toppers ever.
Now, as the song continues to fend off competition from the tally’s perch, it is being greeted with new reports that it has been certified Diamond by the RIAA for sales equivalence that has exceeded over 10 million units. The achievement makes him the second artist to ever reach Diamond status while still occupying the Hot 100’s summit. In fact, the only other artist to do this was Elton John – who laid claim to the first ever Diamond single with 1997’s ‘Candle in the Wind.’
While we extend our congrats to X, look inside to see who joins him in the top 25 on this week’s ‘TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100’ edition:
‘No Time’ rapstress Lil Kim has taken to Instagram to remind the media she has no time for outlets who don’t ‘put some respect on her name.’
The diva, hot on the promo trail in support of new music and the highly anticipated forthcoming VH1 reality show, ‘Girls Cruise’ (as we reported here), is bringing the jaunt to a screeching halt after she received word some of the very networks set to interview her were wielding disparaging remarks about her.
‘The Jump Off’ rapstress may have briefly jumped on the cases of ‘The Today Show’ and ‘Access Hollywood’ (where she says she was due to appear on July 11), but Andy Cohen – host of Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live‘ – got the worst tongue lashing of all.
The Queen Bee stings await inside:
Ariana Grande teamed up with Vogue to create a visual for her jam ‘In My Head.’
The visual accompanies her cover and spread with the fashion and lifestyle publication and offers fan a fresh look into her creative world as she promotes her new albums ‘Sweetener’ and ‘Thank U Next’ and the tour she built to take its tracks on the road!
As reported, ‘The Lion King’ made an almighty roar at its world premiere last night in Los Angeles.
Stars and critics alike have been raving after being the first to see the Jon Favreau blockbuster – which is led by Donald Glover (in the role of Simba).
Bey, who plays Nala, announced just before showtime that she’ll be releasing a companion compilation named ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ on July 19th. The first taste of the multi-artist project arrived today in the form of the singer’s soaring anthem ‘Spirit.’
Pending the LP’s arrival, peep more from the seismic evening after the jump…
Lil Kim is not only hailed for being the Queen Bee, but she’s most definitely been a busy bee of late too.
Fresh from performing at the 2019 BET Awards alongside Mary J. Blige, the female rap pioneer also popped up to perform with MJB at the 2019 Essence Festival in New Orleans.
While in town, she sat down with SiriusXM radio to dish on her long-awaited new album ‘9’ and upcoming VH1 series ‘Girls Cruise’ (for which she’s also executive producer).
Ahead of the latter’s July 15th premiere, check out the chit-chat below… (more…)
