“Brown Skin Girl” is easily the most-liked track in Beyoncé’s new Lion King-inspired album: The Gift.
The track, brought to life by Nigerian WizKid, SAINt JHN and Beyoncé’s 7-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, has been trending all over social media since its release.
Not able to contain the joy of hearing her name in the song, Oscar-winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o, took to her Instagram page to celebrate the song and what it means to her.
Part of the song lyrics where Lupita’s name was mentioned reads:
“Thank you @Beyonce for this Gift!!” Lupita Nyong’o wrote on her Instagram post.
While “Brown Skin Girl” is receiving all the praise and attention, another track from the album, “Don’t Jealous Me”, performed by Tekno, Yemi Alade and Mr. Eazi, is not getting so much.
Beyoncé’s “The Lion King: The Gift” was released on Friday, the same day the new version of The Lion King hit movie theaters.
Beyoncé voices the character of Nala in the photo-realistic remake of the 1994 animated classic.
