Ghanaian dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has revealed that he will soon join music superstar Beyoncé for a music tour.
This follows news of a collaboration between the multiple Grammy winner and ‘My Level’ singer on the yet-to-be-released ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ album. Shatta Wale stated that his team had been informed by Beyonce’s management of a forthcoming global tour to promote the new album.
“They’ve told us that we are going to be on that tour,” elated Shatta Wale disclosed on Zylofon FM, Wednesday.
Social media on Tuesday was awash with the announcement of Shatta Wale’s feature on the new album to accompany The Lion King remake. The artiste is featured on the 11th song titled ’Already’ on the 14-track album to be released on Friday.
Other contributors on the project include Mr Eazi, Guilty Beats, Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Tekno, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Childish Gambino. After submitting his verse for the song, Shatta Wale revealed that he prayed for his entry will be accepted and passed by Beyonce’s team.
According to him, the collaboration was sealed in June this year after his agent responded to a request from Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment. The artiste mentioned that the ‘Halo’ hitmaker sent the lyrics of her verse and he was asked to record his verse and submit a copy through his agent.
