Dancehall superstar, Shatta Wale, has been featured in the official trailer for Beyoncé's Black Is King film.
The American singer is set to release Black Is King, a music film which features videos for her The Lion King: The Gift album.
The songs on the album include the banging track with Ghana's Shatta Wale which is titled Already.
Ahead of its release on Friday, July 31, 2020, a promotional video has been released and it features Shatta Wale prominently.
From a video sighted by Briefly.co.za, Shatta Wale happens to be the only artiste on the album to have been featured in the trailer.
The trailer was shared on Disney Plus' official Instagram page with the caption:
"In 2 days, experience a new visual album. #BlackIsKing, a film by @Beyonce, is streaming Friday exclusively on #DisneyPlus."
The official trailer comes days after snippets of Beyoncé's music video with Shatta Wale surfaced online.
The video looked to have been recorded from the screen of a TV and had inscriptions suggesting it might have been recorded in a non-English speaking country, possibly in Asia.
From the official trailer, it looks like the video which surfaced online was the right one.
The Black Is King film is being released over a year after the Already song by Beyoncé and Shatta Wale was released by the American singer.
As reported by Briefly.co.za at the time, Beyoncé curated two albums featuring international artistes for the Lion King movie which are called Spirit and The Gift.
It is on The Gift album, released on Friday, July 19, 2019, which had Beyoncé featuring Shatta Wale on the Already song.
The album also featured other African stars including Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Mr Eazi, Tekno, and Yemi Alade.
