Gqom pioneer DJ Lag has co-produced a track on Beyoncé’s new Lion King soundtrack.

The album, Lion King: The Gift features a number of new Beyoncé songs, as well as appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Wizkid, Burna Boy and more. The track in question, ‘My Power’, features Tierra Whack, Beyoncé, Busiswa, Yemi Alade and Moonchild Sanelly.

Beyoncé explained in an interview with ABC that: “This soundtrack is a love-letter to Africa, and I wanted to make sure that we found the best talent from Africa”.

“It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”
