Beyoncé has released a supplementary album for Disney's much-anticipated remake of The Lion King.

The 14-track project, titled The Lion King: The Gift, was announced earlier this month along with the release of its first single "Spirit." About a week after, the singer-songwriter unveiled the album's full tracklist, which boasts contributions from mega-stars like JAY-Z, Childish Gambino, and Pharrell, as well as a number of African artists like Wizkid and Mr. Eazi.

Beyoncé spoke about her intentions behind The Gift, which she executive produced, during a recent interview with Good Morning America

"This soundtrack is a love letter to Africa," Beyoncé said. "I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa and not just use some of the sounds and do my interpretation of it. I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa."

Chance the Rapper also plays a small role, which he thanked Glover for.
