Beyonce Brings Along Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy And Other African Superstars On “The Lion King: The Gift”By Victor Aderibigbe — 2 years ago
To the excitement of many, our Nigerian and African music superstars have been revealed to appear alongside Beyonce, Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino and more on the Beyonce-curated album, “The Lion King: The Gift.” The album which is executive produced by Queen Bey herself is inspired by Disney movie, The Lion King, which set to hit the cinemas this weekend.
Scheduled for release this Friday, July 19, the project is set to feature an all-star African cast including Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy, Yemi Alade, Mr Eazi, Tekno, Shatta Wale, Busiswa and Moonchild Sanelly. The album will also include ‘Spirit‘, the Beyonce single off the original soundtrack of the movie.
“The Gift“, described by Beyonce as a “sonic cinema” is inspired by pop, hip-hop, pop and Afrobeats elements and is largely produced by some of the best producers across the continent.
In a released statement, Beyonce revealed that “I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline. Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”
It’s happening guys! Afrobeats to the world!!!Post Views: 1,485

This new single is produced by Tochi Bedford, who was also the culprit on the boards for the ominous and hard-hitting ‘Anti‘. This new record finds trap-Zamir at his finest as he takes us on a brief tour of his inner sanctum. PsychoYP on his part wraps the record with a killer verse enwrapped a polished flow and an airtight delivery.

Ahead of his soon-to-be-released EP which he announced officially just a few days ago, Reekado Banks has released a new record titled ‘Need More’ featuring the Jiggy boy Kida Kudz as well as EO. This would be Reekado Banks’ first single release since he got stuck in the lockdown for about six months in Gabon after going there to shoot a music video.
This coming EP “Off The Record” would be Reekado Banks’s first release project since his celebrated debut album “Spotlight” which was released over four years ago. The original plan was to release his sophomore album this year, but apparently, this was also one of the plans disrupted by COVID this year. Now, his fans would have to settle for this 5-track EP which would serve as a prelude to his full-length body of work.
Speaking about the EP in a recent interview with GRM, he revealed that “all the songs on the EP are collaborations. There is not a single song that isn’t a feature. As you already know, “Need More” has Kida Kudz and EO. There’s a song with Wizkid on the EP, another with Tiwa Savage and Mr Eazi.
The crazy thing is I didn’t actually get to sit down with many of the artists, apart from two of them. Tiwa stopped by my house one day and recorded, and I was with Wizkid in his studio when we made the record. Every other song was done remotely and I really love everyone on the project.”
This new record ‘Need More’ is heavily influenced by the UK bounce and it just feels so fitting to have Kida Kudz on the joint. Over the head-bopping beat, the trio croon about having the best of times at a wild all-night party and how that just isn’t enough. The Blaise Beatz-produced bop offers something in its liquid chorus for everybody who listens to it: pining for a blazing romance, a twinge of nostalgia, or a shot of self-praise.
Enjoy the record above.Post Views: 152
