It’s the clash of the titans as Beyonce links up with Childish Gambino for a brand new track titled ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’ off the Lion King: The Gift album expected to arrive next week.
Beyonce is responsible for curating an album for the movie and so far from the songs we have heard it is clear that the entire project is going to be epic and fans can’t just wait for it to arrive, she earlier delivered “Spirit” off the forthcoming project, without allowing tension to die down, she comes through again with ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’, one of the main attraction off the project today.
A snippet of a collaborated track between Beyonce and Childish Gambino surfaced through one of the film’s trailers and it was their rendition of Elton John’s ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight’ and it is available on all international digital stores.
“This is a new experience of storytelling,” she said. “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.” she said.
“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” she continued. “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.”
