Beyonce has enlisted Nigerian music superstars Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Burna Boy, Tekno and Mr. Eazi in new ‘Lion King’ album.

Beyonce had earlier announced that she worked with African artists and producers to retain the authenticity of the sound.

The artists’ features were unveiled in the tracklist which she described as “a love letter to Africa” with Nigerian and African stars including Shatta Wale lending their vocals.

The 14-song album will include several original Beyoncé tracks, as well as collaborations with the likes of JAY-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, and Pharrell.
