Beyonce’s “Lion King” soundtrack is set to cement Afrobeats in the global mainstream.

Quartz Africa has a recent article discussing how Beyonce's new Lion King themed album (to be released this week) is heavily influenced by Afrobeats and features many of our favorite West African artists including Yemi Alade, Tekno, Mr. Eazi, Burna Boy, Wizkid and Shatta Wale. While Afrobeats is already gaining global popularity, this album may take the genre to a new level. Check out the article and Beyonce's first single from the album, Spirit, below.
