Beyonce Explains Why She Chose Shatta Wale Ahead Of Sarkodie & Stonebwoy

We guess you know the news now; Shatta Wale is the only Ghanaian artist chosen from Ghana to be part of Beyonce’s new project dubbed, The Lion King; The Gift.

Although several Ghanaians have thrown their weight behind Shatta Wale and congratulated him on his rare feat, some fans are wondering why Shatta Wale was the only GH artist chosen ahead of Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and the rest (this does not mean they are better than Shatta Wale anyway).

Beyoncé explained what went into picking the performers and the theme for the album.This is a sonic cinema. 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.”

The famous R&B superstar also explained her choice of performers on the album, saying she did not only look at the most interesting artists but the best African producers too.

The famous R&B superstar also explained her choice of performers on the album, saying she did not only look at the most interesting artists but the best African producers too.

“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline. 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, executive produced by Beyoncé, is out this Friday, July 19 via Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia Records.

The soundtrack to The Lion King arrived last week. As with The Gift, it includes Beyoncé’s new song “Spirit.” The CGI live-action remake of the The Lion King hits theaters July 18.
