Beyoncé has taken on the role of curator for the newly released compilation The Lion King: The Gift. The album acts as a companion piece to Disney’s Lion King remake, which hit theaters Thursday (July 18).

The LP features contributions by Queen Bey, JAY-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Tierra Whack, Childish Gambino, Pharrell and more.

“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” Beyoncé said in a press release. “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.”
