The release of Disney’s 2019 remake of The Lion King, and Beyoncé curating a soundtrack for the project, were two big cultural events this year has witnessed. And although the singer recently lost in all her categories in the Emmys, she’s still making black-centered art which we love her. Now, she has collaborated with U.S. cable company ABC for a special documentary showing a behind-the-scenes collage for The Lion King: The Gift. Aptly titled, Beyonce Presents: Making the Gift, the documentary drops on ABC tonight.
In the trailer released on Sunday, we caught glimpses of Beyonce working with a whole number of artistes. The album is memorable for working with Afrobeats stars like Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade, and we really looking forward to it. Are you?
