With Blue Ivy by her side, Beyoncé stuns in the visual for her new single “Spirit.”
The single is from The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack.
“The soundtrack is a love letter to Africa and I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa and not just use some of the sounds and do my interpretation of it,” Beyoncé stated. “I wanted to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa. A lot of the drums, the chants, all of these incredible new sounds mixed with some of the producers from America, we’ve kind of created our own genre and I feel like the soundtrack becomes visual in your mind. It’s a soundscape. It’s more than just the music because each song tells the story of the film.”
The Lion King movie hits theaters this Friday, July 19.
