Lebo M says the song was recorded in separate studios but is certain to be a major hit.

“We are very excited about the song. I can be ambitious and say that I have a feeling that song might just be bigger than Circle of Life, so we are very excited,” Lebo M said.

The film will be in cinemas on 19 July and feature the voices of Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, and James Earl Jones.
