Singer and composer Elton John has confirmed his collaboration with Beyonce. Together they produced a song for a future remake of the movie “the lion King”, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to Maximum.
“They must be new final song — says Elton John. — I hope that together with Beyonce and Tim rice (composer) we’ll come up with something cool. Working with her will be very great.”
In addition to new compositions, the film will include four songs from the original cartoon: “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?”, “I Just Can not Wait To Be King”, “Circle of Life” and of course “Hakuna Matata”.
For the first time the rumors that Elton John will write a song for Beyonce, appeared last fall. Then the parties discussed the possibility to work together for “the Lion King” where the singer will play the lioness Nala. Recall that Elton John was working with Tim rice for the song of the original cartoon 1994.
