It’s here. Last week, Beyonce revealed her powerful new song “Spirit,” from The Lion King: The Gift, an upcoming album curated by the star which will feature various artists “steeped in the sounds of Africa.” On Tuesday (July 16), ABC premiered the official music video for the track.
The clip, which aired during ABC’s Lion King special with Robin Roberts, shows Queen Bey looking absolutely glorious in a number of brightly colored gowns among the African landscape with her dancers. Scenes from the visually stunning live-action remake of The Lion King weave through scenes of Bey, creating an uplifting ambiance.
