A Trio of 'Lion King' Albums Crowd Top 10 on Soundtracks Chart

July 31, 2019

The top 10 of Billboard's latest Soundtracks chart, dated Aug. 3, is brought to you by all things The Lion King, as three companion albums to both the new Disney movie and the same-named 1994 animated film populate the region.

Beyoncé’s new The Lion King: The Gift project opens at No. 1 on the tally, earning 54,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 25, according to Nielsen Music. Meanwhile, Walt Disney Records’ new The Lion King soundtrack climbs 4-2 on the tally with 22,000 units earned (up 46%), and the same label’s soundtrack to the 1994 animated film pounces 13-9 with 7,000 units (up 48%).

The Soundtracks chart ranks the most popular soundtrack albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

"The Lion King: The Gift" Debuts at No. 2 on Billboard 200

July 29, 2019

Beyoncé, who voices the character Nala in Disney’s new The Lion King film, sees her King-inspired album The Lion King: The Gift debut at No. 2 on the new Billboard 200 chart with 54,000 equivalent album units earned (with 11,000 of that sum in album sales). The album was released on July 19 via Parkwood/Columbia Records. The set, which is billed to Beyoncé & Various Artists, boasts Queen Bey performing on 10 of the album’s 14 songs. Those songs include “Spirit,” which is also heard in the film and included on its Walt Disney Records soundtrack, which zooms 31-13 on the Billboard 200.

Beyoncé executive produced and curated The Lion King: The Gift, and also is a producer on each of the set’s tracks.

The Lion King: The Gift marks Beyoncé’s ninth top 10 effort on the Billboard 200 as a soloist, and second new top 10 of 2019, following Homecoming: The Live Album (a debut at No. 4, May 4). Notably, Beyoncé is just the second act of 2019, and first woman, to achieve two new top 10s this year. She follows Future, who notched two new top 10s with Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD (No. 1 on Feb. 2) and Save Me (No. 5 on June 22). (Beyoncé has actually seen three of her albums visit the top 10 in 2019 — the only act to achieve that feat this year. In addition to The Lion King: The Gift and Homecoming, her 2016 No. 1 Lemonade returned to the top 10 on the May 4-dated chart.)

Recording process for "The Lion King: The Gift" was documented!

July 24, 2019

Ali Baruck revealed on Instagram that she documented the recording process for "The Lion King: The Gift":

"The Lion King: The Gift. What an incredible project to be a part of. I had listened to Afrobeat before, but never experienced it on this level. Over the past few months, some of Africans finest talents flew from Nigeria, London, Ghana, South Africa and Cameroon to the LA studio to create beats, lyrics, chants, records...magic. The rooms beamed with creativity and a deep love for music and African culture. We were there til the early hours of the morning every night. Everyone shared their talents, culture, love for their homeland, we ordered authentic Nigerian food for dinner. The studio became a little family. It was all love ❤️ Meeting these artists was so amazing and seeing their process of making music was an unforgettable experience. All of these records are truly authentic to Africa, which was the first and most important thing the incredible A&R team stressed to everyone involved. It truly is a love letter to Africa ❤️🌍 I had the opportunity to document it 🎥

If you haven’t already, give The Lion King: The Gift a listen ✨a lot of hard work went into making it. Big congrats to everyone involved.

Inside "The Lion King: The Gift"

July 21, 2019

Yemi Alade had a cold.

Last month, the Nigerian star, who recently passed the one-million-subscribers mark on YouTube, flew to Los Angeles to work on a project by Beyoncé. But when Alade landed, she discovered she no longer had a singing voice. “I couldn’t understand what had happened to me,” she says. “I could talk, but I couldn’t even hit the lowest key.”

Panicked, she immediately went into full recovery mode. “I went for a steaming so I could get more moisture,” Alade recalls. “I jacked up on vitamin C. I went in on lemon and ginger. I felt like an herbalist, I was going in on everything.”

When Alade hit the studio the next morning, “the excitement awoke my voice” — she could sing. As a result, she appears twice on Beyoncé‘s The Lion King: The Gift, which is both a companion album to accompany the release of a new version of Disney’s famous film from 1994 and a tribute to several strains of contemporary African pop from one of the United States’ biggest stars. Alade is joined by other Nigerian luminaries: Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Mr. Eazi, and Wizkid. Beyoncé also looked beyond Nigeria as well, recruiting Shatta Wale (Ghana), Salatiel (Cameroon), Moonchild Sanelly (South Africa), and Busiswa (also South Africa) to contribute to The Gift.

(In the film, Glover voices the title role of Simba, and Beyoncé, of course, voices Nala. Eichner and Rogen each play Timon and Pumbaa, respectively.)

The Lion King 2019 soundtrack is currently streaming on Spotify and Apple Music. Physical editions of the release will be available on July 19.

Beyonce Shares 'Spirit' From 'The Lion King: The Gift'

July 10, 2019

With the live-action remake of the Lion King about to hit cinemas around the globe, Beyonce is getting fans hyped with the release of a new song, "Spirit."

It’s the first track lifted from The Lion King: The Gift, out July 19.



Disney Announces Beyonce-Produced 'The Lion King: The Gift' Album

July 10, 2019

Walt Disney announced on Tuesday (July 9) that Beyonce will be curating and producing a new album, The Lion King: The Gift. The album and the film's soundtrack will also include new Bey song called “Spirit.”

The album will feature a number of global recording artists and "steeped in the sounds of Africa," according to the announcement on Instagram.

“This is sonic cinema,” Beyoncé said of the record in a statement. “This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.”

“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” she continued. “Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. 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.”

The Lion King: The Gift is out July 19, along with the live-action film, which features Bey as Nala.

The Lion King Soundtrack to Release on July 11th

Jon Favreau Reveals Beyoncé Wrote New Song for The Lion King

June 24, 2019

With tickets now officially on sale for The Lion King here at Fandango, we spoke exclusively with director Jon Favreau, who has followed up his work helming the 2016 live-action redo of The Jungle Book with another groundbreaking effort here. He tells us how the highly anticipated new version is different while still honoring both the original movie and the iconic stage adaptation, the challenges of accomplishing such changes, and how the casting bridges the various versions and generations. And yes, he lost his mind over learning Beyoncé would be involved.

Fandango: Beyoncé is obviously a big deal for this movie.

Jon Favreau: Yes.

Fandango: I read that you wanted her involved so bad you were willing to work around her schedule. Did you have to coordinate much in that regard?

Jon Favreau: Sure, she's very busy. She's doing a lot. She was directing Homecoming, making Lemonade, her family got larger while we were working together. And between touring and albums, she really has a prolific career in many areas. She's an artist and a singer and a performer and very involved. She has a lot of things going on. But she's incredibly engaged and committed, and so what was wonderful was that when we did get together to work, she was exceptional, as you can imagine in her performance, but also really gives everything a lot of thought. She's very hard-working and puts a lot of thought into things, and would often be so extremely well-prepared that she was clearly working on a lot on this even when we weren't together.

When Beyonce dropped her latest visual album "Lemonade" two weeks ago, the internet nearly blew up as critics and fans alike tried to decode lyrics and connect dots of rumored infidelity. ABC13 got an exclusive interview with the singer's mother to find out what she thinks of her daughter's latest release.

"People make it all about the cheating and betrayal and, yes, that's a part of it because that is something you have to heal from," Tina Knowles-Lawson said of Beyonce's creation. "If you really listen to the poetry it is one of hope and redemption and hopefully that can be healing for people."

Though the visual album is made up of vignettes covering the hurt, betrayal and depression caused by Jay Z's alleged infidelity, Knowles-Lawson said "Lemonade" comes from a good place in Beyonce's heart and is intended to help others through the pain of relationships soured.

"It could be about anyone's marriage," said Knowles Lawson. "I think that everybody at one time or another has been betrayed and lied to and it's about the pain--and it's about the healing process--and it's about how do you get past that and move on."

Knowles-Lawson is no stranger to the pain of infidelity either. Her marriage to Mathew Knowles, Beyonce's father, ended in 2011 after their relationship deteriorated years earlier. She says it was her children who helped to build her up again after the divorce. Read more...
As previously reported, Beyonce's Lemonade soars onto the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated May 14), taking the No. 1 spot with 653,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 28, according to Nielsen Music. The set also crowns the sales-based Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, with 485,000 in pure album sales, granting the superstar her sixth No. 1 on both charts.

The release of the album additionally spurs all 12 of its tracks to debut on the Billboard Hot 100, while all 12 also appear on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (with 11 debuting), powered by mostly by sales and streams.

With her Hot 100 entrances, Beyonce makes history: it's the first time that a female act has charted 12 or more songs on the Hot 100 at the same time, surpassing Taylor Swift's previous record of 11 (set on Nov. 13, 2010, sparked by the release of her album Speak Now). On Dec. 5, 2015, Justin Bieber bested Drake and the Beatles for the one-week record among all acts: 17 songs on the Hot 100 simultaneously, as his album Purpose debuted atop the Billboard 200.

"Formation," originally released Feb. 6 preceding her Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show performance of the track the following day, leads her parade of debuts with points stemming from 174,000 in digital sales (the most of any of the album's tracks) and 6.5 million U.S. streams in the week ending April 28. While "Formation" charts on the Hot 100 for the first time, it re-enters the 50-position Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at No. 6; it had previously peaked at No. 33 (March 19) based only on its performance at radio.

Of the newly released Lemonade songs (i.e., all except "Formation"), "Sorry" was streamed the most in the tracking week, logging 14.2 million U.S. streams, while "Hold Up" racked up the highest sales: 123,000 downloads in its first week. The sultry "6 Inch," featuring The Weeknd, starts with the third-highest weekly domestic streams (12.2 million) and sales (99,000).

Here's a look, song by song, at Beyonce's dozen tracks apiece on the Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs: Read more...
Capping the Billboard Hot 100's top 10, Beyonce blasts onto the chart at No. 10 with "Formation." The song, from her album Lemonade, which roars onto the Billboard 200 at No. 1, is her 16th solo Hot 100 top 10 and first since "Drunk in Love," featuring Jay Z, which reached No. 2 in February 2014. (Beyonce has also notched 10 top 10s as part of Destiny's Child.)

"Formation" bows with roughly two-thirds of its Hot 100 points from sales, as it starts at No. 3 on Digital Songs with 174,000 sold, having gone on sale April 25. It also enters Streaming Songs at No. 43 (6.5 million) with almost all its streaming points from Tidal, which holds exclusive streaming rights to Lemonade. (A nominal portion of streaming points is from user-generated clips featuring the song's official audio.)

"Formation," which also re-enters Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at a new high of No. 6, had bubbled under the Hot 100 and rose to No. 33 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in March, driven by airplay, when it was not available for purchase (and Tidal did not report the song's streaming totals to Nielsen; none of its streams prior to April 23 were reported by Tidal to Nielsen). The track first made waves in early February, as Beyonce performed it live during the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show (Feb. 7).
Hits Daily Double reported today that Columbia (Beyonce’s label) is sending ‘Sorry’ to Rhythm radio later this week, which could signal it being the first official single to be taken from the album.

Lemonade was originally released just over a week ago (April 23) after Beyonce premiered her short movie, of the same name, on cable network HBO. After the movie came to a close, Beyonce dropped the album as a TIDAL exclusive.

Less than 48 hours later, the album was in demand that much that Beyonce and her team decided to release the album to retailers such as iTunes an Amazon. However, Tidal has confirmed to Unreality TV that Lemonade will continue to stream on Tidal in “perpetuity”.

When the album was originally released, it was thought that ‘6 Inch’ featuring The Weeknd would be lifted as the first official single from the album, but it looks like Beyonce wanted to see how the album perfomed before making anything official.
Beyonce’s Lemonade album charges in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, giving the superstar her sixth chart-topper. The set earned 653,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 28, according to Nielsen Music. Pure album sales comprised 485,000 of that sum. (Lemonade's total unit figure was updated in this story at 12:29 p.m. PT.)

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new May 14-dated chart (where Lemonade is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, May 3.

Lemonade was introduced on April 23 through its same-titled film, which was soundtracked by the album’s songs, and premiered on HBO. The 12-song visual album was released by Parkwood/Columbia Records following the film’s debut, initially exclusively through Tidal. By Monday, April 25, the album -- which is bundled with the film -- went on sale through other digital retailers, but Tidal remains the only service with streaming rights to the set. A physical version of the album will be released on May 6.

Lemonade scores the biggest week of any album in 2016, both in terms of overall units and in sales.

All six of Beyonce’s studio albums have debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Lemonade follows her self-titled album in 2013, 4 (2011), I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008), B’Day (2006) and Dangerously In Love (2003). Beyonce is the only act to reach No. 1 with their first six studio efforts (and the only act to debut atop the list with their first six).

In addition to her six No. 1s, Beyonce has charted four further albums on the tally: Live at Wembley (No. 17 in 2004), Irremplazable EP (No. 109 in 2007), Above and Beyonce: Video Collection (No. 35 in 2009) and Beyonce: More Only EP (No. 8 in 2014).
The sudden release of Beyoncé's Lemonade (Columbia) prevented a possible top 5 Prince takeover on the new U.K. album chart, announced Friday (April 29). Drake's “One Dance” (Cash Money/ Republic/ Universal), featuring Wizkid & Kyla, starts a third week atop the singles chart, on which Prince has six titles in the top 100.

Early-week sales flashes from the Official Charts Company showed Prince albums holding down the entire top 5 after his death on Apr. 21. But Lemonade overtook The Very Best Of Prince (Warner Bros.) with opening sales of 73,000, including 10,000 equivalent sales via streaming -- 14 percent of its total. That's the biggest percentage since streaming data became part of chart methodology last year. It's Beyoncé's third U.K. No. 1 album.

No fewer than six tracks from Lemonade became top 40 hits, with “Hold Up” leading the way at No. 17, then “Formation” (No. 31), “Sorry” (No. 33), “6 Inch” (35), “Don't Hurt Yourself” (36) and “Freedom” (40).
Beyonce's Lemonade album is heading for No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, according to industry forecasters. The set, which was released on April 23 through Parkwood/Columbia Records, could sell around 450,000 copies (or more) in the week ending April 28, and earn 550,000 equivalent album units. If it starts at No. 1, it will give Beyonce her sixth chart-topper, and continue her hot streak atop the Billboard 200: all five of her previous studio albums have debuted at No. 1.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the new May 14-dated Billboard 200 chart (where Lemonade will likely start at No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, May 1.

Lemonade was introduced on April 23 through its same-named film, which was soundtracked by the album’s songs, and premiered on HBO. The visual album was released following the film’s debut, initially exclusively through Tidal. By Monday, April 25, the album — which is bundled with the film — went on sale through other digital retailers, but Tidal remains the only service with streaming rights to the set. A physical version of the album will be released on May 6.
Music video director Diane Martel working on "something special" with Beyonce and Mariah Carey.

According to an Instagram post uploaded to video director Diane Martel's private account, she has something in the works with superstar songstresses Mariah Carey and Beyonce.

"Working with these two on something special can't wait to show u all!," Martel wrote in the caption to a photo of Beyonce and Mariah Carey.

As a music video director, Martel has directed the accompanying music videos to a number of songs, including Mariah Carey's "Dreamlover," Beyonce's "Best Thing I Never Had," and Nicki Minaj's "Pills N Potions."

Official word on a possible collab between Beyonce and Mariah has yet to be made.
Sources close to the situation say that Beyoncé's new set, Lemonade (Columbia), will be available for download on iTunes and Amazon tonight, and physical product will arrive later in the week. Tidal will have a permanent exclusive on the streaming front. There is, these sources add, no plan to take the album wide on that platform.

The exclusion of Spotify, and other services with freemium tiers, for streaming is the latest manifestation of Sony's windowing efforts to limit free access, following the success with Adele's 25, which was kept off streaming services except for single "Hello" and achieved astronomical sales.

Tidal has experienced a huge bump in visibility of late, as Bey's splashy album drop (with attendant HBO opus) follows the explosion of interest in Prince's music following his untimely death. Tidal also has an exclusive on streaming of Prince's prodigious catalog. Indeed, since Lemonade was served, Tidal has become the most downloaded music app in the U.S., surpassing Pandora and Spotify, and one of the top apps worldwide.

How this big spike will translate into subscriptions remains to be seen, but the streaming field looks different now than it did just a few days ago.

Meanwhile, reports also say Lemonade instantly became one of the most pirated albums on torrent sites like The Pirate Bay. This follows a similar surge in piracy for another Tidal exclusive, Kanye West's The Life of Pablo. Will the album's availability as a legal download (unlike Pablo) stem this tide?
She did it again.

Beyoncé, who in 2013 changed the rules for how pop superstars deliver music with the surprise simultaneous release of a self-titled album and corresponding videos, has returned with a follow-up in the same vein: “Lemonade,” the singer’s sixth solo album, arrived on Saturday night after the HBO premiere of an hourlong, conceptual short film based around the music.

In a twist that played the personal off the professional, the new album and its accompanying visuals — which describe, in sometimes brutal detail, the tribulations of Beyoncé as a scorned lover — were made available to stream Saturday night exclusively on Tidal, the music streaming service owned by her husband, Jay Z. The album is not yet for sale as a download through any digital retailers.

“Lemonade” is “based on every woman’s journey of self-knowledge and healing,” Tidal said in an announcement.

The album’s 12 tracks feature contributions from the Weeknd, James Blake, Jack White and Kendrick Lamar; the songs sample or draw on a varied slate of artists including Led Zeppelin, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Soulja Boy and Animal Collective, with production from Just Blaze, Diplo and Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend. The HBO special, which was shot primarily in New Orleans, featured cameos from Serena Williams and Jay Z, with spoken-word interludes from Beyoncé, local residents and others. The videos were directed by Kahlil Joseph, Melina Matsoukas, Todd Tourso, Dikayl Rimmasch, Jonas Akerlund, Mark Romanek and Beyoncé.
Topshop announces the arrival of Ivy Park – a new activewear and athleisure brand co-founded by Beyoncé, available in store and online on 14 April. Mixing high performance technical sportswear with fashion-led casualwear, Ivy Park empowers women through sport – no matter what your sporting ability or body shape. The collection centres on a core of sports staples: leggings in three rises, crop tops, drop arm tees, sweatshirts and technical jackets. All products can be mixed to create your personal sportswear uniform.

"When I'm working and rehearsing I live in my workout clothes, but I didn't feel there was an athletic brand that spoke to me," Beyoncé said in a statement. "My goal with Ivy Park is to push the boundaries of athletic wear and to support and inspire women who understand that beauty is more than your physical appearance. True beauty is in the health of our minds, hearts and bodies. I know that when I feel physically strong I am mentally strong and I wanted to create a brand that made other women feel the same way."

The collection includes over 200 pieces of sportswear – from clothing and footwear to accessories – across dance, fitness and sports categories. Prices will range from $30 to $200.

UPDATE: Hillary Clinton's spokesperson denied the news.

Hillary Clinton recently paid a visit to the Queen … Bey, that is!

"Beyonce was filming a video and Hillary made a surprise visit to the set" on Thursday, March 24, in L.A., a source exclusively reveals in the latest issue of Us Weekly.

The insider could not reveal if the Democratic front-runner, 68, scored an on-screen cameo, but a second insider confirms Beyonce, 34, is currently working on an album, complete with music videos. (The album is likely to drop in April.)

By the next morning, Clinton had returned to the campaign trail, setting her sights on the goal she laid out in December.

"I want to be as good a president as Beyonce is a performer," she said when asked at an Iowa town hall if she'd rather be Beyonce or president.

No doubt securing a permanent spot in the hive, the presidential hopeful had high praise for the pop star at the event: "You see her on TV, it's impressive; you see her in person, you're just stunned. Thinking like, ‘How does she do that?’ Really. I mean, she's singing, she's up and she's down. She's just amazing."

The admiration is mutual. Last May, Beyonce attended a Hillary Clinton fundraiser event in NYC. Although the mom of Blue Ivy, 4, with husband Jay Z supported Barack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 presidential races, now she wants her girl Hillary to run the world.
Beyonce has the ability to “make you forget she’s a superstar”, according to songwriter Carla Marie Williams. The music professional has been working with the R&B legend on her upcoming album. She has written a track for the record, which is top secret, but promised fans they will be blown away by Beyonce’s musical transformation on her next offering.

“When I’m in the studio with Beyonce she makes you feel so at ease you forget she is a superstar. I am loving where she is going. ”I haven’t heard the whole album but we’re talking real issues. The new single we’ve done is very powerful.”

Carla has previously worked with the likes of Kylie Minogue and Paloma Faith in the past and she is now collaborating with Britney Spears.
When Beyoncé drops, she makes the world stop. The iconic pop star only extended the trend with the release of "Formation," a stinging, visceral celebration of being black *and southern, not to mention a political statement that crashed squarely into the face of conservative America.

For Beyoncé, "Formation" also signified something else, the first taste of what could be the impending release of the follow-up to Beyoncé, her eponymous, surprise-release 2013 audio-visual masterpiece. She's notoriously coy about her behind-the-scenes moves, and little is often known of what she's cooking before it's served on a golden platter. Maybe she's been in the studio recording #B6, maybe not—it's part of what makes her such a thrilling character, one that keeps us guessing as much as she keeps us satiated.

Throughout her career, a few ticks past the days of her stint as one-fourth (and then one-third) of Destiny's Child, Bey has been opaque about her recording process as a solo artist, and not every song that's laid down in the booth makes it onto the final product. Some end up getting jacked from the studio and hit the internet, where they exist as treasures for deep-diving members of the Beyhive.

After more than 10 years, Destiny's Child is back at No. 1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart. Meanwhile, Brandy reigns after seven years.

"The Girl Is Mine," by 99 Souls featuring Destiny's Child and Brandy, rises 2-1 on the chart (dated March 5). The track is a mash-up of Destiny's Child's "Girl," a No. 5 Dance Club Songs, and No. 23 Billboard Hot 100, hit in 2005, and Brandy and Monica's "The Boy Is Mine," which led the Hot 100 for 13 weeks in 1998.

Destiny's Child scores its fourth Dance Club Songs topper, Brandy her third and British house duo 99 Souls its first. Destiny's Child had last led with "Soldier" (featuring T.I. and Lil Wayne) in February 2005. Brandy had last topped the chart with "Long Distance" in March 2009. Notably, the three principal Destiny's Child members have all hit the summit as soloists: Beyonce (22 No. 1s), Kelly Rowland (three) and Michelle Williams (one).

Remixes from Chris Lorenzo, Crookers, and Danny Howard, among others, helped "Girl" grab the No. 1 spot.
