With the film supposedly on par to make a bajillion dollars on its opening weekend, the Beyoncé-reared soundtrack for The Lion King (dubbed The Gift) will hit the e-waves around the same time as the film’s theatrical release on July 18th. After sharing its tracklist, Bey has now released a video for the soundtrack’s closing song “Spirit.”
The video aims to capture the beauty of African nature, and even Blue Ivy makes an appearance in the clip. “It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers,” Beyoncé said about the album. “Authenticity and heart were important to me.”
