Beyonce, on Tuesday, released the tracklist for “The Lion King: The Gift” album which she curated and produced.
“I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa and not just use some of the sounds and did my interpretation of it. I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa,” she told Robin Roberts.
