Tidal releases extended version of Beyoncé, JAY-Z, Childish Gambino collaboration

Track appears in new The Lion King film from Disney

Tidal has released the extended version of “Mood 4 Eva” by Beyoncé, JAY-Z and Childish Gambino exclusively on the streaming giant. The original track appears on the The Lion King: The Gift album soundtrack from Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia Records. It follows Beyoncé’s powerful “Spirit” released earlier this month.

Beyoncé is the executive producer of The Lion King: The Gift album, a musical ode to the classic story of Disney’s The Lion King feature film. Directed by Jon Favreau, the film is in theaters and soundtrack is now available.

The Lion King: The Gift, with new recordings by Beyoncé, features a beautiful, multi-genre symphony, steeped in African influences from various corners of the continent, with unexpected collaborations, pulsating rhythms and crisp production that celebrate the African diaspora. This love letter to Africa highlights the setting of the film, rooted in African culture and wondrous narratives.
