54 minutes


July 19, 2019

This is sonic cinema. This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn't one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter[1]

The Lion King: The Gift is a soundtrack inspired by the 2019 remake of The Lion King. It was released on July 19, 2019.[1]


The Lion King: The Gift features global recording artists and is inspired by the sounds of Africa. Beyoncé Knowles-Carter served as the executive producer.
