Beyoncé has shared a video for her powerful new song, “Spirit,” from The Lion King: The Gift, an album inspired by the Disney film.
The superstar’s 7-year-old daughter Blue Ivy is also featured in the video, walking through an African desert holding her mother’s hand. Beyoncé described the video as “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 did my interpretation of it,” she told ABC News‘ primetime special “The Lion King: Can You Feel The Love Tonight.”
“The concept of the video is to show how God is the painter, and natural beauty in nature needs no art direction,” she said. “It’s the beauty of color, the beauty of melanin, the beauty of tradition.”
