The album, based on the soundtrack album by singer “The Lion King: The Gift” for the remake of the 2019 Disney movie, reimagines the film’s lessons for the “young kings and current queens in search of their own crowns, ”Disney + said at a launch, and it’s a“ world celebration memory about the black experience ”.
The vibrant film album was released over the course of a year and features a diverse cast and crew from various locations where it was shot, including New York, Los Angeles, South Africa, West Africa, London and Belgium.
The singer, who also directed and executed the work, first performed the album’s trailer on YouTube on July 19, in a video that has already garnered more than 2.7 million views.
The album includes full-length videos for tracks including “My Power”, “Brown Skin Girl”, “Mood 4 Eva” and “Ya”.
