  • Beyonce's new song for Lion King movie has Swahili lyrics

Disney is now in the process of remaking many of its classic animated films with modern visual effects and live-action casts.

Adding to the praises of the "Crazy in Love" singer, Glover went on saying, "They're not gonna make a Beyonce again so I'd just listen to her. Listen to what she did".

It's part of an album called "The Lion King: The Gift" that Beyonce is executive producing and performing on along with other artists.

"This is a new experience of storytelling", Beyoncé said in a statement. "I was like, 'She's getting a standing ovation for just existing.' Like, her mere presence was a reason to stand and go insane, and I totally got it". The sunny Simba cubs that saw the original in cinemas are now Mufasa-aged, with grey in their manes; many now have Simbas of their own scampering between their paws.

The Lion King: The Gift, will feature new recordings by Beyonce, and features "a attractive, multi-genre symphony, steeped in African influences from various corners of the continent, with unexpected collaborations, pulsating rhythms and crisp production that celebrate the African diaspora". So, it came as no surprise when actor Seth Rogen revealed that Beyonce received a standing ovation at the world premiere of The Lion King.
