#Wizkid Begins His Year With Brown SKIN Girl on Beyonce’s #TheGift album for the #LionKing Movie|Full Lyrics.

From the first lines by SAINt JHN and Blue Ivy Carter to Wizkid’s lines in Brown Skin girl on Beyonce’s #TheGift album for the #LionKing Movie, we knew we had a winner, a song that would probably be talked about almost as much or more than the movie itself. And that’s saying a lot.

The Brown Skin girl song makes you want to salute or pledge to remain faithful to brown skinned women for the rest of your days. A national anthem for brown skin girls from Nigeria to Kenya to South Africa to the Caribbeans and all around the world. A vibe that will last this summer and in summers to come.

By his standards, 2019 has been a slow year for Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun popularly known as Wizkid, an international star that has put Nigerian music and afrobeats on the global map with his unique flows and collaboration with global music stars.

Long time Beyonce fan, Wizkid kicks off his year with this mega feature on Grammy award-winning artist, Beyoncé’s 14 track album titled ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ for the live action remake of  The Lion King from Disney, a movie that was released when Wizkid was 4 years old.

Beyonce has four solo songs on the album and features collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, and many of Nigeria’s top Afrobeats stars including Burna Boy, Mr. Eazi, Yemi Alade, Tiwa Savage and Wizkid himself. Ghana’s Shatta Wale, Cameroon’s Salatiel and South Africa’s Busiswa and Moonchild Sanelly also feature on this love letter to Africa.

Africans on social media have reacted positively and sometimes hilariously to the song and other songs from the album and we bring you some of their reactions and the full lyrics of the song.

Full Lyrics to Beyoncé – BROWN SKIN GIRL ft. SAINt JHN, WizKid, Blue Ivy Carter.

[Intro: SAINt JHN & Blue Ivy Carter]
Brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
Never trade you for anybody else
Singin’ brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
I never trade you for anybody else, singin’…

[Verse 1: Wizkid]
She said she really grew up poor like me
Don’t believe in nothin’ but the almighty
Just a likkle jeans and a pure white tee
She never did forever be nobody wifey, yeah
So while I may not pretty boy, your heart is amiss
Play it like a villain ’cause she caught in a wave
Tonight I am walkin’ away
Lined up my mind, on the grind, yeah, yeah

[Pre-Chorus: Wizkid]
Tonight I might fall in love, dependin’ on how you hold me
I’m glad that I’m calmin’ down, can’t let no one come control me
Keep dancin’ and call it love, she fightin’ but fallin’ slowly
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told me

[Chorus: Wizkid]
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
Your back against the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
The best thing in all the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say

[Verse 2: Beyoncé]
Pose like a trophy when Naomis walk in
She need an Oscar for that pretty dark skin
Pretty like Lupita when the cameras close in
Drip broke the levee when my Kellys roll in
I think tonight she might braid her braids
Melanin too dark to throw her shade
She minds her business and winds her waist
Gold like 24k, okay

[Pre-Chorus: Wizkid & Beyoncé]
Tonight I might fall in love, dependin’ on how you hold me
I’m glad that I’m calmin’ down, can’t let no one come control me
Keep dancin’ and call it love, she fightin’ but fallin’ slowly
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told me

[Chorus: Wizkid & Beyoncé]
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
Your back against the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
The best thing in all the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say

[Verse 3: Beyoncé]
Oh, have you looked in the mirror lately? (Lately)
Wish you could trade eyes with me (Because)
There’s complexities in complexion
But your skin, it glow like diamonds
Dig me like the earth, you be giving birth
Took everything in life, baby, know your worth
I love everything about you, from your nappy curls
To every single curve, your body natural
Same skin that was broken be the same skin takin’ over
Most things out of focus, view
But when you’re in the room, they notice you (Notice you)
‘Cause you’re beautiful
Yeah, you’re beautiful

[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]
Them men, them gon’ fall in love with you and all of your glory
Your skin is not only dark, it shines and it tells your story
Keep dancin’, they can’t control you
They watchin’, they all adore you
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told you

[Chorus: Beyoncé & Wizkid]
Brown skin girl (Brown skin girl), ya skin just like pearls (Brown skin girl)
Your back against the world (Oh)
I never trade you for anybody else, say (No, no)
Brown skin girl (Brown skin girl), ya skin just like pearls (Brown skin)
The best thing in all the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say

[Outro: Blue Ivy Carter]
Brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
I never trade you for anybody else, singin’.
