Pulling out all the stops for the arrival of the star-studded live-action remake of The Lion King, Disney has enlisted Beyoncé to curate an album inspired by the film. Filled with collaborations alongside Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams, and co-star Childish Gambino, The Lion King: The Gift is a musical companion that carries the magic and cultural artistry projected in the film. Amidst the 27 tracks, Beyoncé surprised electronic fans with a Major Lazer collaboration. The two are the perfect fit for the project, as Major Lazer’s inherent Afro-funk inspiration beautifully compliments Beyoncé motivations as the album’s executive producer. Along with Ghanaian reggae-dancehall musician Shatta Wale, “Already” springs to life with intricate production and captures the cinematic sonics Beyoncé hoped to provide in her “love letter to Africa.” Stream Beyoncé and Major Lazer’s new single “Already” below and stream the entire The Lion King: The Gift on Spotify.
