Beyoncé, has released an extended version of his music video “Spirit”, adding the song “Bigger” but maintaining the same amount of appearances. The original video premiered during an ABC News special with Robin Roberts, in which Beyoncé appeared in an interview about the next album she cured for the film. “This soundtrack is a love letter to Africa,” she said in the interview. ”  I wanted to make sure I found the best talent in Africa, and not just use some of the sounds and interpret them.”

The Gift, an independent full-length album that will feature a variety of African artists and producers, sounds similar in terms of the spirit of the Black Panther album of the Kendrick Lamar diaspora last year. But the first test of the project, a sure gospel-pop ballad called “Spirit”.

The song’s music video was filmed at Havasu Falls, a waterfall in Havasu Creek, located in the Grand Canyon, Arizona, United States. Beyoncé received special permission from the Havasupai tribe to close off the waterfall from the public to allow filming of the music video. Shooting lasted around five hours, with Knowles arriving and departing from the location via helicopter. The music video premiered during Can You Feel the Love Tonight, an hour-long special hosted by Robin Roberts that aired on ABC Network on July 16, 2019.
