American superstar, Beyoncé Knowles, has teamed up with South African producer and composer, Lebo M, for a surprise track for the much-anticipated Lion King movie.
This exciting news is revealed as the film is set to hit local box offices in less than a month, as reported by TimesLIVE.
When Lion King's track list was released with a bonus track titled TBA, it had Disney fans super curious and incredibly excited.
Jon Favreau, the film's director, has confirmed that Beyoncé wrote the song with Lebo M.
According to Fandango, Favreau said the track isn't replacing any other songs that feature in the original movie.
"Yeah, it doesn't replace anything. We have all the original songs, but there's a song that she performed and wrote in the spirit of the production along with working with Lebo M, who's part of it with Hans Zimmer."
Briefly.co.za learnt that the song will feel like it is an organic part of the new production.
Favreau Said: "They were all collaborating with her and helping to bring this new piece of music into a film where there's already a very established musical personality to the piece.
"So it was nice to have them working with her to allow the new song to feel organically a part of the new production."
Here's a taste of what to expect from the movie:
