    Since there isn’t a Topic already.

    The Lion King: The Gift. Executive produced by Beyoncé. Music from & Inspired by the Film will be released 19th July 2019.

    It seems very heavily influenced by African sounds and themes. The genres said to be explored are Pop; Hip hop and AfroBeats, judging from the tracklist, that is very much the case.

    Not very many big American artists, as she’s used Ghanaian,Nigerian, Cameroonian and South African acts.

    Diplo (Major Lazer) seem to have worked on the project. They’ve previously worked together on Run The World (Girls), Hold Up and All Night.

    Ghanaian Producer Guilty Beatz helped on 3 songs.

    You meant to say Beyoncé ripped-off/stole African sounds and themes.

    The album isn’t bad. I don’t think it’ll be popular as the sound they aimed for is really african and not particularly mainstream in the U.S. I gotta admire her willingness to always try new things, even though this album doesn’t connect well with me.

    I don’t like how they literally copied the narrative interludes concept straight out of ASIB soundtrack though.

    i didn’t think about it like that. When Lemonade first appeared on HBO, it had poems that played throughout every song. Earl-Jones was the poetry that played in between the songs

    When lemonade was put on streaming in april, it had the poem interjections.

    Yeah Lemonade had intros to every song, which explained the concept of Lemonade.

    Though for this one,the way it was done is just too similar to ASIB. Every few songs there’s an excerpt from the movie dialogues that matches the theme of the next song etc..

    Kinda copying imo.. But anyway not a big deal.

    I agree with M. But I think that Beyoncé refined it when she added the African precision and beats, the wails. I think that’s one of things I would have changed for both, not add the interludes because it just seems dull and out of place for someone who hasn’t watch the movie. For Beyoncé though, I probably would have just added those parts in front of most of the songs that are after it.

    I don’t think that was her point to appeal to more wider audience that A Star is Born tried to do. I think she wanted to pay homeage to her African roots and to not allow sales or streams bother it. I understand if you were let down for not being mainstream, but that’s not what she was going for. She was authentic with the beats, she didn’t sell out for the coins. She just gave a quality album.
