Tina Knowles-Lawson on Blue Ivy Carter’s collaboration with Beyonce for ‘The Gift’

Beyonce’s mom, Tina Tina Knowles-Lawson, is dishing the details of Blue Ivy Carter’s writing credits in Queen Bey’s new album, The Lion King: The Gift!

“Oh my god. That album is incredible,” Knowles-Lawson gushed to Entertainment Tonight. “I can’t get enough of it and, of course, I’m not biased but that was wonderful and for Blue to be a part of it, it’s amazing.” Beyonce’s 7-year-old daughter is credited in the track “Brown Skin Girl” co-writer for the song.

Knowles-Lawson was present at The HollyRod Foundation’s 21st Annual DesignCare Gala last Saturday in Malibu, California when she spoke to ET. The matriarch even gushed about Beyonce’s involvement in The Lion King remake.

“I was very excited because when she was a kid we must have watched that show 20, 25 times,” she revealed. “So, I’m just so excited for her daughter to be able to see this, her kids and it’s very exciting. It’s a beautiful movie. Really beautiful.”

Earlier this month, Beyonce made a rare television appearance on ABC to talk about her single for the film, Spirit.
“I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa and not just, you know, use some of the sounds and give my interpretation of it,” she said in the interview that aired July 16. “I want it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa.”

“A lot of the drums, the chants, all of these incredible new sounds, mixed with some of the producers from America, we’ve kinda created our genre,” she added “And I feel like the soundtrack, it becomes visual in your mind, it’s a soundscape, it’s more than just the music, because each song tells the story of the film.”
