Beyoncé has premiered a breathtaking music video for her new song “Spirit,” which she recorded for Disney’s live-action remake of The Lion King.

The video opens with Bey sitting in a flowing gown in the middle of the desert with daughter Blue Ivy, who wears a matching outfit.

Other scenes show the singer performing some impressive choreography alongside African dancers and in a blue dress next to a crystal-clear waterfall.

It was this waterfall scene that CLOSED the Grand Canyon for 4 HOURS !

"The concept of the video is to show how God is the painter, and natural beauty in nature needs no art direction," Queen Bey explained during the special. "It's the beauty of color, the beauty of melanin, the beauty of tradition."

"Spirit" is the first track off the compilation album titled The Lion King: The Gift, which Beyoncé produced and curated as a musical ode to the film.

The LP also features contributions from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino and Pharrell, as well as her husband JAY-Z. 

The Lion King is in local cinemas now.
