Beyoncé dropped her new single “Spirit” the other day, the first of several songs planned for a companion album to Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of The Lion King.
The movie arrives in theaters on July 17, which I’m sure you already know. The companion album – entitled The Gift –will debut that same day, and in addition to producing and performing songs for it, Beyoncé is “curating” the track list to feature music from African artists.
But back to the new single “Spirit.” It’s fabulous. Otherworldly. Beyoncé soars and shows us why she’s the greatest artist of her generation.
What do you think? Were you gobsmacked? Did it change your life? Is it better than “Single Ladies”? Let me know your thoughts in the Facebook comment section
