Disney Releases Star-Studded “The Lion King” Soundtrack
Beyoncé and Donald Glover are among the artists who put a fresh spin on Disney classics on the new soundtrack for <i>The Lion King</i>. Out now, the soundtrack features Queen Bey and Glover teaming up for a Pharrell Williams-produced version of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.” Glover also joins forces with Billy Eichner, Seth Rogen and JD McCrary (who voices young Simba) on a new version of “Hakuna Matata.” Beyoncé’s new song “Spirit”–which was inspired by the film and appears on a separate compilation LP–also makes the tracklist of the original soundtrack. Other highlights include Elton John’s new song “Never Too Late,” which plays over the credits, and Lebo M.’s “He Lives in You”–which was originally written for the stage musical and featured in <i>The Lion King 2. </i>The film hits theaters on July 19.
