Beyoncé has released a video for "Spirit," her original composition featured in the new Lion King film as well as The Lion King: The Gift, her new compilation of Lion King inspired music featuring JAY-Z, Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Tierra Whack, and more. Watch the video for "Spirit
" on Top40-Charts.com - it is, as expected, absolutely breathtaking!
The Lion King: The Gift
is set to be released this Friday. The album comes in addition to a Lion King soundtrack featuring songs from the film; The Gift
also features tracks by Burna Boy, Pharrell, 070 Shake, and more.
"This is sonic cinema," Beyonce
said previously of The Gift. "This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn't one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip-hop, and Afro Beat."
Beyoncé, of course, leads us through a kaleidoscopic mix of beautiful choreography and brightly-colored outfits as she sings and dances in front of dozens of dancers and basically takes our breath away. And while the video could have ended right there, Queen
Bey tapped her 7-year-old old daughter Blue Ivy for a gorgeous cameo in which they each rock matching pink gowns.
