In related Beyoncé news, it seems like fans might hear the chart-topper sing a new tune for the upcoming remake of The Lion King if Sir Elton John has it his way. John, who is reuniting with his former Lion King soundtrack collaborator, Tim Rice, will return to the studio to record a new track to close out the film. "They need to have a new end credits song," he told The Sun via NME. "There's going to be four of our songs in the film, from the original: "Can You Feel The Love Tonight," "Hakuna Matata," "I Just Can't Wait To Be King" and "Circle of Life."
"And then there will be an end, closing song, and we've been speaking to Beyoncé’s people and hopefully Tim and I and her can cook up something," he continued. While Bey will voice the character of Nala, Donald Glover is scheduled to voice the character of Simba. The Lion King remake is set to be released in 2019.
