If the storm comes, if we burn up
If the wells run dry
You're my reason to believe in
Another life

If it all ends and it's over
If the sky falls fire
Best believe me, you will see me
On the other side

If we wake up, lose our patience
Or even lose our lives, oh
I feel lucky to say that you've been
A friend of mine

Best believe me, you will see me
On the other side

So kale so okale
So kale we
Woah Wao
Wa Wonu Okan mi Lo Oluwa
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Sokale)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Oluwa)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Sokale)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Oluwa)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Sokale)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Oluwa)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Sokale)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Oluwa)
Mababu Katika Mawingu (Sokale)
Mababu Katika Mawingu

    General CommentThe “Otherside” starts out with Nigerian producer Bankulli chanting in Yoruba, with Beyonce swiftly joining in in Swahili. The refrain “Mababu Katika Mawingu” means grandfathers in the clouds. This is a nod to Beyonce’s work as the voice of Nala in Disney’s live action, The Lion King. The shared heritage between one of her most iconic scenes in the movie and her life draw together to produce powerful elements. With the lyrics, “You will see me/ On the other side”, we are reminded of how powerful an artist Beyonce is and how iconic her music continues to be. Her music continues to define the time we live in and is a reflection of the world we live in. Beyonce released “Otherside” on her visual album, The Lion King: The Gift on July 31st on Disney+.
