Beyoncé has released the supplementary album for Disney's much-anticipated remake of The Lion King.

The 14-track project, titled The Lion King: The Gift, was announced earlier this month along with the release of its first single "Spirit." About a week after, the singer-songwriter unveiled the album's full tracklist, which boasts contributions from mega-stars like JAY-Z, Childish Gambino, and Pharrell, as well as a number of African artists like Wizkid, Shatta Wale, Yemi Alade, Burna Boy and Mr. Eazi.

Beyoncé spoke about her intentions behind The Gift, which she executive produced, during a recent interview with Good Morning America.

"This soundtrack is a love letter to Africa. I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa and not just use some of the sounds and do my interpretation of it. I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa" she said.
