Unless you've been living under Pride Rock, you've probably heard about the live action remake of The Lion King featuring Beyonce herself as Nala. On this week's Must-Hear Music podcast, we're talking about the companion album Queen Bey made for the film, The Lion King: The Gift, featuring collaborations with various African artists, from Burna Boy to Bankulli on the lovely "Otherside."

Catching summer vibes, we have Haim's "Summer Girl" and Noah Cyrus' less-sunny "July." Plus: Whitney Houston earns her first posthumous Billboard Hot 100 hit thanks to a revamped version of "Higher Love" from Kygo; Christine and the Queens team with Charli XCX for "Gone"; and ShooterGang Kony brings a touch of Cali funk to trap with "Charlie."
