Rapper Tierra Whack is finishing off 2019 strong with only 5 months left in the year!
The Philadelphia native recently announced that she will be included in Beyoncé’s musical accompaniment to Disney’s Lion King entitled, The Lion King: The Gift.
Whack delivered the news via instagram with a post stating, “I wanna give a huge thank you to Beyoncé for choosing me to be apart of this amazing experience!”
The 23-year-old rapper who also made XXL’s Freshman Class of 2019, will be featured on the single, “My Power,” alongside Beyoncé and African artists: Busiswa, Yemi Alade, and Moonchild Sanell.
She will be among the 20 artists featured on the African inspired album produced by Queen Bey herself.
Some other artists that you can expect to hear on the soundtrack includes Jay-Z, Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Jessie Reyez, Wizkid, Tekno, Yemi Alade, and even Blue Ivy.
Whack has been receiving a lot of backing from the music industry since the release of her debut studio album, Whack World.
Meek Mill recently took to Twitter to dubb the rising artist as ‘best female rapper in the world’ after Jermaine Dupri’s infamous comments about the lack of diversity in female rap.
Other artists to co-sign Meek’s statement include T.I and Cardi B.
