Donald Glover Explains Why He Didn't Want to Record 'The Lion King' Music With Beyonce

Donald Glover didn’t want to hit the recording studio with Beyonce while working on The Lion King!

The 35-year-old actor had a funny response when asked if the two stars were in the same room while working on music for the upcoming movie.

“I requested not to be,” Donald joked while on Jimmy Kimmel. “I did not want to be looking into Beyonce‘s eyes while doing this…I imagine it’s less intimidating playing basketball with Michael Jordan!”

Donald clarified with the real reason, saying, “No I was actually working on Solo at the time so I was in London so I recorded it at Abbey Road studios.”

Be sure to listen to a clip of Donald and Beyonce‘s performance of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?”
