On Thursday night, Beyoncé's 14-track The Lion King companion soundtrack album The Lion King: The Giftwas released.

The project boasted features from Childish Gambino, Burna Boy, Kendrick Lamar, Tekno, Yemi Alade, Mr Eazi, Jessie Reyez, Pharrell, Blue Ivy Carter, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Wale, Major Lazer, Tierra Whack, 070 Shake, and others. 

JAY-Z was also featured on the project, and contributed a verse on "Mood 4 Eva." Said verse seemingly made reference to that photograph of him riding a jet ski. You know, the one that turned into a meme.
