Beyoncé has unveiled a new documentary which will go behind-the-scenes of the creation of the The Lion King soundtrack album, The Gift.

The album, which 38-year-old superstar executive produced, features original music from herself, Donald Glover, Pharrell and several other artists which acted as the soundtrack to the live action remake of the 1993 Disney classic.


The trailer promised fans would "experience the process" of the album-making, with scenes showing boardroom playbacks of tracks, the artists live recording their music, Blue Ivy and her mum playing on the drums, and even Naomi Campbell having a boogie.

Bey revealed Making The Gift would air on ABC at 10pm EST. There's no news as yet of when UK fans will be able to watch the doc, but we don't think Bey will keep us waiting too long. That would be mean.

Beyoncé, who voiced Nala in the reboot, previously said The Gift would champion African and lesser-known artists.

"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 explained in an interview with ABC.

Bey called the album an "authentic" showcase of the continent's sounds mixed with "some of the producers from America".

The record includes appearances from Jay-Z, Childish Gambino, Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar, Tierra Whack, 070 Shake, and Jessie Reyez, as well as African artists such as Wizkid, Shatta Wale, Burna Boy, Mr Eazi, Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Yemi Alade, Busiswa and Salatiel, among others.

Her five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy even features on track 'Brown Skin Girl'.

We can't wait to watch this.
