While you were sleeping last night, Beyoncé dropped an incredible album filled with features from African artists which she called "a love letter" to the continent.
The project, titled The Lion King: The Gift, serves as a complementary album to the live-action film, a remake of the 1994 original.
So let's talk about this mind-blowing album, shall we?
On it, Beyoncé sings to her children, talks about her father on a track called "FIND YOUR WAY BACK," brags about being THAT BITCH (!!!) on "MOOD 4 EVA," and praises dark skinned women like Lupita Nyong'o on "BROWN SKIN GIRL."
In addition to serving us sounds straight from the motherland, the "Freedom" singer used the album to uplift Black people and shine a light on several deserving African musicians, and I thank her for it.
