Beyoncé, Donald Glover, Billy Eichner & Seth Rogen team up on a new song titled Can You Feel The Love Tonight. The new single si one of the tracks from the animated motion picture, Lion King movie which will be released across theatres next friday. We already heard Spirit which saw only Queen Bey handle the song and now “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” which is one such classic song that makes it way back to this soundtrack, but this time Beyonce and Childish Glover perform an epic version, alongside Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner.
Bey carries most of the song with her signature powerhouse vocals, which kicks off with a Titanic-esque flute instrumental, and a humorous, half-sung-half-spoken exchange between Rogen and Eichner (who play Timone and Pumba in the new film). Glover comes in on his part with softer and more held-back vocals.
So many things to tell her
But how to make her see
The truth about my past? Impossible
She’d turn away from me
Beyoncé is executive producing and curating an album inspired by the film called The Gift. “This is sonic cinema,” she said in a statement. “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, hip-hop and Afro Beat.”
