Forget Spirit and Brown Skinned Girls, Here are Three Songs from Beyonce Lion King Album That Will Blow Your Mind

Beyonce described the album as a love letter to Africa. The Gift featured many African artistes and incorporated the our very own sound, Afrobeats.

If you have not listened to all the songs on the album, you must have heard Spirit and Brown Skinned Girls. Well, guess what Spirit and Brown Skinned Girls is not the only banger on the album.

Ja Ara E – Burna Boy

This love letter to the Nigeria hustle is a hot single. Especially the place where Burna said “you go bow for Lagos o.”

Water – Salatiel, Pharell Williams and Beyonce

Water is a universal bond and this song reinforces that fact.

Lyrics

[Intro: Salatiel]
Yeah
Shoot!

[Chorus: Salatiel]
Baby, oh, I’m not much of a talker
Baby, oh, can I drink from your water?
Baby, oh, meet me down by the river
We can dance to the rhythm
‘Til the sun is high and the water runs dry

[Post-Chorus: Pharrell Williams & Salatiel]
Yes, we can make it far (Hot shit)
Don’t need inflatables (Hot shit)
That’s what the waves are for (Hot shit)
What are you waiting for? (Hot shit)
Yes, we can make it far (Hot shit)
Don’t need inflatables (Hot shit)
That’s what the waves are for (Hot shit)
What are you waiting for?

[Verse 1: Pharrell Williams]
Well, darling, if you leave, I’ll go wherever you go
I’ll wear your heart on my sleeve so everybody here knows
But if you tell me to stay, you’ll never be on your own
So baby, don’t wait too long

[Chorus: Pharrell Williams]
Baby, oh, I’m not much of a talker
Baby, oh, can I drink from your water?
Baby, oh, meet me down by the river
We can dance to the rhythm
‘Til the sun is high and the water runs dry

[Post-Chorus: Pharrell Williams & Salatiel]
Yes, we can make it far (Hot shit)
Don’t need inflatables (Hot shit)
That’s what the waves are for (Hot shit)
What are you waiting for? (Hot shit)
Yes, we can make it far (Hot shit)
Don’t need inflatables (Hot shit)
That’s what the waves are for (Hot shit)
What are you waiting for?

[Verse 2: Beyoncé]
I’ll bring you back the moon just so we got all night
I’ll bring the sun down too, so I can show you the light
Trust me, if you ever leave, I’ll be right by your side, oh
For you, I will ride, ah

[Chorus: Pharrell Williams, Beyoncé & Both]
Baby, oh, I’m not much of a talker
Baby, oh, can I drink from the water?
Baby, oh, meet me down by the river
We can dance to the rhythm

‘Til the sun is high and the water runs dry

[Post-Chorus: Pharrell Williams, Salatiel & Beyoncé]
Yes, we can make it far (Hot shit)
Don’t need inflatables (Yeah, Hot shit)
That’s what the waves are for (Yeah, Hot shit)
What are you waiting for? (Yeah, Hot shit)
Yes, we can make it far (Yeah, Hot shit)
Don’t need inflatables (Hot shit)
That’s what the waves are for (Yeah, Hot shit)
What are you waiting for?

[Chorus: Pharrell Williams & Beyoncé]
Baby, oh, I’m not much of a talker
Baby, oh, can I drink from your water?
Baby, oh, meet me down by the river
We can dance to the rhythm
‘Til the sun is high and the water runs dry

Otherside – Beyonce, Syd and Nicky Davey

This one had a tint of Swahili and Yoruba.

Lyrics

[Verse 1: Beyoncé]
If the storm comes, if we burn up
If the wells run dry
You’re my reason to believe in
Another life

[Chorus: Beyoncé]
If it all ends and it’s over
If the sky falls fire
Best believe me, you will see me
On the other side

[Verse 2: Beyoncé]
If we wake up, lose our patience
Or even lose our lives, oh
I’ll feel lucky to say that you’ve been
A friend of mine

[Chorus: Beyoncé]
Best believe me, you will see me
On the other side

[Outro: Bankulli & Beyoncé]
So kale so okale so kale we
Woah Wao
Wa Wonu Okan mi Lo Oluwa

Mababu Katika Mawingu (Sokale)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Oluwa)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Sokale)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Oluwa)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Sokale)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Oluwa)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Sokale)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Oluwa)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Sokale)
Mababu Katika Mawingu
