Jay-Z References Jet Ski Meme on New ‘Lion King’ Soundtrack Song: Listen
Jay-Z brings the vibes from his meme-worthy vacation to his new song for The Lion King soundtrack.
On Friday (July 19), the film's soundtrack Lion King: The Gift dropped and it features a slew of new songs from his wife Beyoncé, Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar and plenty more. On the song "Mood 4 Eva," which is a song with Hov, Bey and Gambino, Hov reminds people of the time he went jet skiing and decided to wear a helmet during his entire ride.
"Helmet, on a jet ski, you know the vibes," Jigga spits on the track. "Hit my head, forget I'm me (I love it), oh my God!"
The moment from Hov's past vacation with Bey went viral thanks to a paparazzi-captured image, making for the type of content meme creators live for. Clearly, the Brooklyn rapper doesn't mind having a laugh or two at his own expense—and the fact that he's now a billionaire surely can't hurt.
As previously reported, Hov officially reached billionaire status this year—making him the first-ever rapper to do so. According to a report from Forbes, the fortune comes not only from his music but his ownership in companies like Roc Nation and TIDAL, as well as investments in other companies such as Uber.
Listen to "Mood 4 Eva" for yourself below. The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack is available on streaming services now.
