The LP is a separate release to the flick’s official soundtrack.

Bey, who plays Nala in the film, recently called the album “a love letter to Africa.”

She said on “Good Morning America”: “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.

“I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa.”
