Okay I'm ridiculously excited for this. I'm assuming 'Spirit' is the "TBA" on the official Lion King soundtrack?

Hmm. First listen it's OK. Can't see myself going back to it much on it's own, but hopefully in the context of the movie/the movie version will make it feel like it belongs in the film. I'm struggling to see where this will fit, when we have 'He Lives In You' already. Hmm...

Also I read that someone said this will be as big as Circle Of Life. And I oop. Chart wise I have no idea, but COL as a song is leagues ahead and one of the greatest movie songs of all time laugh.gif

Edit: I think I misinterpreted the post aha. I assume this is just the credits song and not Nala's solo? So kinda the 'Love Me Like You Do'/'All The Stars' of this movie.

The OCC have announced that there's a separate album which has been curated by Bey released this week, so this might be from that, rather than the movie soundtrack?

It's very dull, I've listened a few times to try to warn to it but it's the single I've enjoyed least from Beyonce in a while (Perfect aside). If it really is in the movie, it's going to easily be the worst of those songs - I was hoping Nala would give us a new classic.

I like it! Surely this is just an All The Stars type song rather an instrumental song from the movie?!

She sounds horrendous & shouty. What happened to her voice? The song itself is boring as hell.

It's a NO from me. sick2.gif

Dropped loads on iTunes.

I thought her power and name would’ve possibly gotten her an iTunes #1 given how little you need to sell and how huge she is.

Says a lot about the quality of the song though tbh, I feel like it might be one that grows and feels a lot better within the context of the movie

It's music inspired by the film but Beyoncé appears on 10 tracks!

The music video for this premieres tonight

I actually really like the song after a few listens! Bey sounds great and it has a really anthemic feel to it, watching the music video has made me very excited to see the movie now

Debuts at #80 in the UK which isn't too bad considering the music video only has 12 million views and the song has just under 6 million streams on Spotify worldwide

Me too!

It sounds like it could easily be a non-film Beyoncé song whilst still being very Lion King at the same time
