Beyoncé just released a new visual for “Spirit,” her single

The icon premiered the video during an ABC News primetime special on Tuesday (July 17)  called The Lion King: Can You Feel the Love Tonight With Robin Roberts. The special featured interviews with the singer, members of the movie’s new cast, and director Jon Favreau, alongside cast members from the original 1994 film.

In the breathtaking video, Beyoncé is surrounded by dancers, including Nigerian and Ghanian dance troop the A.V. O. Boys, in stunning scenic landscapes that attempt to capture the film’s East African setting.

There’s also a heartwarming cameo from Bey’s first-born, Blue Ivy.

The song appears on The Lion King’s official soundtrack and on Beyoncé’s executive produced and curated The Lion King: the Gift album.
