The music mogul released her highly-anticipated album, “The Lion King: The Gift”, which is accompanying the release of the Disney blockbuster.
Beyoncé also voices the character of Nala in the live-action remake of the classic film.
The album also features Blue Ivy’s father Jay-Z, Pharrell, Childish Gambino, Burna Boy, Mr. Eazi, Tierra Whack, Jessie Revez and Tiwa Savage.
7-year-old Blue Ivy Carter is featured on a track “Brown Skin Girl” with Brooklyn rapper SAINt JHN. She opens by singing the lyrics;
Brown skin girlYour skin just like pearlsThe best thing in the worldNever trade you for anybody elseSingin' brown skin girlYour skin just like pearlsThe best thing in the worldI never trade you for anybody else, singin'...
Blue Ivy also received a credit for her work, meaning she will be collecting those royalty checks.
She also stole the spotlight in her mother’s music video for the lead single “Spirit” off the album.
The song credit isn’t Blue Ivy’s first, with her father Jay-Z also crediting her on his song “Glory” released back in 2012.
He included audio of his newborn on the track which he released only days after Beyoncé gave birth.
Beyonce recently sat down with Robin Roberts to talk about her album saying, "This soundtrack is a love letter to Africa, and I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa, and not just use some of the sounds and did my interpretation of it."
"We've kind of created our own genre, and I feel like the soundtrack, it becomes visual in your mind. It's a soundscape. It's more than just the music, because each song tells the story of the film."
