Beyonce Lion King Song

I am so blessed to know people like Donald and Jon man.

"Yeah, that was a big deal", Glover, also known as Childish Gambino, told Variety's Marc Malkin at the movie's star-studded world premiere on Tuesday night in Hollywood.

Simba flees into the jungle and eventually, reunites with his childhood friend Nala, who urges him to return to Pride Lands in order to reclaim his rightful throne.

"[Jon Favreau and I] were on set together actually, and he took me to the side and said 'Hey.' And I thought he was gonna ask me to like sign something for his son or something because I heard his son was a fan. And he was like, 'Would you want to be Simba?'" "So for about a year I would go to the LK studio and see early animations, scenes, music direction or assemblies and they'd always be out of this world unbelievable".

Beyonce, on Wednesday, treated fans with a new song "Spirit" from the film.

The Crazy In Love singer paid tribute to her in a message about Black History Month on her website in February, where she wrote: "Meghan brought many Black traditions to her Royal Wedding including a Chicago-based Black pastor, an fantastic gospel choir, and a young Black cellist".

Disney have announced the release of a new album to accompany the release of the film, The Lion King: The Gift, which will be produced and curated by Beyoncé.
