Beyonce may have a starring role in ‘The Lion King’ movie which doing well, but her new album ‘The Gift’ is not doing as good.

The singer curated and produced an album to go alongside the new Disney film but it has flopped being downloaded just 949 times in the UK in the first five days after its release.

Queen B who voices Nala in the film was allegedly paid £25million for the movie, official soundtrack and this accompanying album, but it has failed to strike a chord with fans.

As reported by The Sauce, she sings on 13 tracks on The Lion King: The Gift, with guests including her husband Jay Z, Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar and a several African music stars.

According to The Sun, a Disney insider said: “Bosses did everything they could to get Beyonce on board because they know she is so loved.

“There has been a lot of buzz around the film and Beyonce’s involvement but her spin-off album has been massively disappointing.

“The Greatest Showman’s soundtrack was the biggest-selling album of 2018, and Disney had hoped that getting someone as huge as Beyonce to do an album like this could match its success.

A year ago her album with Jay Z, ‘Everything Is Love’, peaked at No5, her worst first week of record sales ever in the UK. They also struggled to sell out their stadium tour last summer.
