The song, characterized by its African epic groove, was released as part of the lion king album project on the 19th of July 2019. Beyoncé links up with American rapper Tierra Whack, South African artists Moonchild Sanelly and Busiswa, plus New Jersey songwriter Nija to create a masterpiece that can’t be forgotten in a hurry.

The song is a declaration of black pride from Queen Bey and Tierra Whack, accompanied by Nija on the hook proclaiming, “They’ll never take my power,” creating a chill and atmosphere of more inspiration and motivation for all that listens to it. Busiswa and Moonchild Sanelly, meanwhile, deliver verses in Zulu and Xhosa.

South African producer DJ Lag’s instrumentation channels Gqom, a style of house music set around 126 beats per minute, originated in Durban. DJ Lag sent six instrumentals to Beyoncé ahead of time, and by the time he’d arrived in LA, her team had already chosen what they wanted. He told Rolling Stone: “The only thing I did at the studio was work with the voices and added Busiswa’s part on the beat.”

This Beyoncé’s excellent hit “My Power” was Produced By Beyoncé, Moses Boyd & DJ Lag and Written By Lwazi Gwala, Blu June, Brittany Coney, Tierra Whack, Beyoncé, NOVA WAV, Moonchild Sanelly, Nija, Yemi Alade & Busiswa.
Yes, I can feel your shock; Nigeria’s Yemi Alade was part of the song’s co-writers, no wonder that mama Africa vibe can be felt in the lyrics.
