The video also gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at Beyoncé in intense Coachell rehearsals, food-repping and working out ahead of her headline set, which became a Netflix film in a multi-million deal.
Queen Bey claims she has a "special bond" with daughter Blue Ivy, and has been honest with her followers about her post-pregnancy weight loss journey in the past.
In her Netflix documentary Homecoming, she shares:
"I’m limiting myself to no bread, no carbs, no sugar, no dairy, no meat, no fish, no alcohol – and I’m hungry." The star has just released her Lion King album, The Gift.
Gorgeous jewellery brand Pandora has unleashed a capsule collection of limited-edition The Lion King-themed charms to celebrate the live-action Disney reboot.
The upcoming movie is a remake of the iconic 1994 film, which hit cinemas last week to huge commercial ticket sales. The circle of style is roaring at Pride Rock right now with this bling, that's for sure.
Pandora's line embodies numerous themes of the film; bravery, strength, wisdom, friendship and empowerment, and includes a selection of stunning gold charms and bracelets.
The film stars the voicing talents of Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, Billy Eichner and Seth Rogan as Timona and Pumba, James Earl Jones returning as Mufasa and Chiwetel Ejiofar as Scar.
Jon Favreau's CGI-animated take on the animation is ground-breaking cinema, so why not celebrate your favourite childhood film literally coming to life?
The Lion King is in cinemas now, and Pandora's limited-edition capsule collection is available worldwide in stores or online here. Prices start at €39, we'd be LION if we said it wasn't worth the cash.
Queen Bey has unveiled the music video for Spirit, which features in Disney's live-action remake of The Lion King, and boy is it powerful.
The actress and singer lends her voice to the character of Nala in the movie, directed by Jon Favreau and featuring talents like Donald Glover, John Oliver, Seth Rogan, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, JD McCrary and James Earl Jones.
Beyoncé told ABC News's Robin Roberts that the video's concept is “to show how God is the painter and natural beauty in nature needs no art direction."

Spirit is just one song off Beyonce’s The Lion King: The Gift album, which accompanies the film. Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell Williams also add their talents to The Gift.
Mood 4 Eva contains the vocal talents of hip-hop legend Jay-Z while Brown Skin Girl sees Blue Ivy add her voice.
Beyoncé described the soundtrack as a “love letter to Africa, adding: “And I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa, and not just use some of the sounds and did my interpretation of it."
We've all been complimented on an outfit before, and replied with a swift; "Thanks gal, it's from Penneys" to scores of disbelieving crowds.
Today, the queen of affordable fashion is celebrating 50 years of business since opening on Mary Street in Dublin in 1969. The golden jubilee of the iconic brand is gifting shoppers with a new collection.
The first store grew and gained loving fans, becoming famous with Irish and international fashion fans alike. The company now has 372 stores in 12 countries, over 75,000 employees and 15 million square feet of retail space.
The store brings 'Amazing Fashion at Amazing Prices' to the masses, and we owe it dearly for many killer outfits and Harry Potter merch.
The brand operates as Primark outside of Ireland, and has become a huge success story over the last 50 years. It plans to expand into Eastern Europe in the future, having just opened a store in Slovenia last month.
The largest store yet was opened in Birmingham this year, with five floors and 160,000 sq. feet of retail space. Primark's biggest beauty studio to date is featured, as well as a barbers and three restaurants.
With womenswear, kidswear, menswear and homeware in it's arsenal, Penneys continues to evolve it's homewear range and has achieved Leaping Bunny certification from Cruelty-Free International for all its own brand, Primark PS... products last year.
Ranges from jeans to pyjamas made using sustainably sourced cotton, grown by farmers trained through Primark’s Sustainable Cotton Programme, are now a regular store staple.
We were LOVING their eco-friendly biodegradable glitter, which launched last month just in time for festivals.
The brand are aware that there's more to be done, and wants to ensure their products are made with care and respect for the environment and workers making the clothing.
Mary Street remains a valuable landmark, with the company's international headquarters located above the shop. The HQ is named after Primark's founder and chairman, Arthur Ryan.
Expressing his pride over the 50-year milestone, Primark CEO, Paul Marchant said:
“The doors to the very first Penneys opened on Mary Street 50 years ago today, and I am so proud of everything we have achieved together in that time – starting from humble beginnings with just one store to now serving over one million customers a day."
The Lion King collection, released today, has already sent fans into a frenzy. Prices start from just €3.50, so you can imagine the rush to buy the entire range.
The amazing line include a white jumper with all your favourite characters from the hit movie, denim shorts, trainers and a yellow bag. Penneys have even created a beauty aspect to the line.
A three pack of lipsticks, a €6 highlighter palette and a mini eye shadow palette are all part and parcel of the range, and we've reached peak excitement.
There's even a gorgeous duvet set that is sure to be snapped up quick. We have our eyes on a terracotta hoodie with a mini Simba's face on it for €14…
The shop dropped a 'Feeling Proud' collection to mark pride weekend in support of LGBTQ rights a few weeks ago too, not to mention a Toy Story 4 range.
We're been treated well by the budget fashion house, that's for sure.
Paul Merchant also made sure to give his thanks to Penneys' exceptionally loyal customers;
"I would like to thank our customers for their loyalty over the past five decades. We look forward to providing them with an exceptional shopping experience into the future."
The visionary company is celebrating in style in its Mary Street store, encouraging customers to drop by today to join in the fun and fashion from 12pm onwards with a live DJ, giveaways and treat stations throughout the day.
May as well pop in, you may just get a well-deserved gift out of it. Not to mention it's time to scout out that incredible Lion King collection before it sells out…
Now, we thought we could handle tricky situations seeing as we're grown adults. We thought wrong. News that the live-action version of The Lion King has cut one of the best songs has hit us so damn hard.
The highly-anticipated Jon Favreau movie features CGI animated photorealistic animals, but one of the most iconic characters will lose their song.
Be Prepared is one of the best tunes out of the entire movie, and is Scar's villain flex move. Unfortunately his bad guy manifesto will be cut, and we are shaken to our very core.
None of us realised how obsessed we are with the song until it was ripped away from our clutching hands, but now we're seriously worried about Scar's character development.
Be Prepared shows his mighty hyena army with green volcano explosions every now and again (EVERY Disney villain has green eyes), and shows the uncle's duplicity.
His teeth, ambitions and delusions of power are shown to the audience, and Elton John wrote it for God's Sake. That alone is reason for it to stay in the film.
The song is a tongue-twister of insanity, which sums up Scar's intentions to murder his own brother Mufasa and take the crown for himself on Pride Rock.
Chiwetel Ejiofor is voicing the new Scar, and we'd have paid big bucks to have heard him sing Be Prepared. Remember how amazing Jeremy Irons' voice is before Jim Cummings takes over for the singing job?
“Prepare for the coup of the century,” he says. “Be prepared for the murkiest scam. Meticulous planning, tenacity spanning, decades of denial, is simply why I’ll be king undisputed, respected, saluted and seen for the wonder I am!”
The film itself is actually based on Shakespeare's King Lear, and the villains in these tales are always hugely important. Why Disney, would you cut such a scorcher of a song? We're considering a large-scale protest.
Disney are also re-making Mulan in live-action form, WITH NO MUSIC.
Yes, you read that right. We have serious questions about their intentions with our prized childhood cinematic gems. If there's no I'll Make A Man Out Of You, you ain't getting our money.
Disney's live-action reboot of The Lion King may well break box office records, judging by the insane level of excitement built up around it.
The flick nailed an all-star cast featuring the original Mufasa himself (James Earl Jones), Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, Donald Glover (AKA Childish Gambino), Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Oliver, John Kani, Eric Andre, Keegan Michael-Key and…
Who are we forgetting?
Oh yes… BEYONCÉ KNOWLES-CARTER as Nala. We're slain.
Naturally, there's an ecstatic amount of nostalgia, especially from us 90s kids out there. Thankfully, during last night's Oscars ceremony, Disney released an extended The Lion King trailer and we died.
How can we possibly wait until July 2019 to see Jon Favreau's epic Pride Lands tale, based on Shakespeare's Hamlet?
More live-action reboots are on the way, following the success of The Jungle Book, which boasts the same director as The Lion King. Dumbo, directed by Tim Burton will arrive in theatres this March, followed by Guy Ritchie's Aladdin in May.
Just like The Jungle Book, Favreau's Lion King uses CGI to bring an entirely animal cast to life in an incredibly realistic-looking format.
Donald Glover, This Is America musical legend, stars as Simba, the orphaned lion cub who returns to Pride Rock to take his place as king.
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter plays Simba's love interest, Nala, while Chiwetel Ejiofor plays the villainous scar. Seth Rogen and Billy Eicher were cast as Pumbaa and Timon, Simba's beloved comic relief companions
We honestly won't be able to see this in cinema, we'd have to be restrained due to the sheer excitement of it all. Cannot cope.
The teaser trailer opens with the sun rising above the Pride Lands. We then hear the familiar voice of James Earl Jones, who is reprising his role as Mufasa.
“Everything the light touches is our kingdom, but a king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, the sun will set on my time here and will rise with you as the new king,” he says as we get our first look at a young Simba.
The Lion King is the next up and coming Disney live-action to hit our screens, and though it won't be here until 2019, Disney have already revealed exactly who is on board to voice act in the new flick.
One of the most exciting revelations is that Queen Bey herself is on hand to star in the flick.
Beyoncé has been confirmed to play Nala, while the divine Donald Glover will voice Simba.
