Beyonce’s “Lion King: The Gift Album” dropped yesterday, 19th of July, 2019 which featured 10 African music superstars.
Wizkid features alongside, queen Bey on “Brown Skin Girl” which has been widely acclaimed by many to be the best song on the album, Burna Boy had a track all to himself as he injects some real African vibes on the project with his track 8 effort, “Ja Ara E” which seems to be the best jam on the album to some other music fans too.
Also on the music project are Tekno, Yemi Alade & Mr Eazi who pulled resources together to deliver on track 6, titled “Don’t Jealous Me,” Beyonce features South-Africans, Busiswa, Moonchild Sanelly alongside Yemi Alade who is featuring for the second time on track 23, “My Power” while she has also Ghanaian artiste, Shatta Wale on track 19 with “Already.” The final track that has the efforts of African artistes is the high-life inspired track 17, “Keys To The Kingdom” which really is a sweet tune.
