Beyonce And Donald Glover Are Singing “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” In ‘The Lion King’

Beyonce will duet with Donald Glover in The Lion King remake.

If we are to believe this post buzz around the BeyHive, Beyonce is featured on five songs off the soundtrack for the forthcoming remake of The Lion King, including “Circle Of Life,” “Shadowland,” “Searching At The Stars,” “Cry Of The Pride Lands” and “Can You Feel The Love Tonight.”

We know for sure she’s featured on the latter track because actor Billy Eichner, who plays Timon in the remake, confirmed so during his appearance on Watch What Happens Live. She’ll sing a duet with Donald Glover, who stars as Simba.

Queen Bey is voicing Nala in the upcoming live action adaptation of the classic, and she’ll also be featured on the star-studded soundtrack(!!!).

Elton John, who masterminded most of the music from the iconic 1994 film with Sir Tim Rice, says the remake will include four of the original hits, and if it’s up to him… a new one just for Beyonce.

“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’,” he told The Sun (via Disney Film Facts). “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.”

The Lion King is directed by Jon Favreau, and stars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Alfre Woodard as Sarabi, John Oliver as Zazu, John Kani as Rafiki, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, Billy Eichner as Timon, Eric Andre as Azizi, Florence Kasumba as Shenzi, Keegan-Michael Key as Kamari, JD McCrary as Young Simba and Shahadi Wright Joseph as Young Nala.
