People got caught by the trailer, mainly because of the song we can hear in the background, part of the movie soundtrack. Let’s discover it.

Beyoncé released My Power in 2019 as part of the album The Lion King: The Gift, inspired by the movie The Lion King. The song became now an essential piece of The Woman King soundtrack.

The lyrics we can hear in the trailer are:

They’ll never take my power, my power, my power
They’ll never take my power, my power, my power
They feel a way, oh wow

They feel a way, oh wow

The singer who pronounces those lines is Nija, who manages to recreate a pronunciation that seems to have originated in Africa.

Beyoncé has explained the meaning of the lyrics with these words:

“The song is a celebration of power, and not allowing anyone to get into your psyche, and to make you feel anything less than a king.”
