Beyoncé And Donald Glover's 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight' Collaboration Is Total Bliss
The much-anticipated live-action remake of The Lion King is almost here. Current superstars have stepped into the classic roles and revived the iconic songs, and that includes Beyoncé as Nala and Donald Glover as Simba singing "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?"
The song begins with Timon and Pumba, played by Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen respectively. The two are discussing the budding romance between Nala and Simba before Beyoncé and Glover take over. This version keeps many features of the original song written by Elton John and Tim Rice. Both Glover and Beyoncé start off smooth and calm before they crescendo into perfect melodies.
In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Glover admitted he was a bit intimidated about recording the song with Beyoncé. In fact, he says he asked if he could record it in a separate studio. As it turns out, Glover was in London working on another movie at the time of the recording, so he got his request.
"I did not want to be looking into Beyoncé's eyes while doing this," Glover told Kimmel. The Lion King soundtrack features even more hits, including a new Beyoncé song called Spirit. But fans shouldn't be too worried, many of the classics have returned including I Just Can't Wait to be King, Circle of Life, and Hakuna Matata.
