Beyonce’s secret song could eclipse one of the greatest soundtracks of all time.

Lebo M, who co-curated the original soundtrack for The Lion King, as well as the new one, believes Beyonce’s contribution could outperform “The Circle Of Life,” which is arguably one of the most-famous songs of all time.

In a new interview, Lebo was grilled to divulge information regarding the new Bey track, which is still unnamed. Though he wouldn’t reveal anything, he’s confident it’ll be massive.

“I can be ambitious and say I have a feeling the song just might be bigger than ‘Circle Of Life,’” he said.

The TBA song is track #14 on the forthcoming soundtrack (our July 11), which would place it in between “Reflections of Mufasa” and before “The Battle for Pride Rock” – a perfect time for Nala to sing to Simba before he heads to battle.

The Lion King director, Jon Favreau, had this to say about Nala’s expanded role: 

“In the original film, her role is not as large as in the stage production, and we definitely drew inspiration, and that was one of the areas where we were going to expand this.” 

The Lion King hits theaters July 19.
