Featuring Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino and her husband Jay-Z, there’s no denying Beyoncé‘s The Lion King: The Gift has major star power. The album, out Friday (July 19), seamlessly blends afrobeats, rap, R&B and pop in what the superstar calls her “love letter to Africa.”
While “Spirit,” “Bigger” and “Find Your Way Back” are all solid Beyoncé-fronted bops, tracks like “My Power” featuring Tierra Whack and Nija and “Nile” with Lamar bring beats that are fiercely intense. We also can’t forget the upbeat, feel-good track “Brown Skin Girl,” featuring an adorable cameo from Blue Ivy.
