Beyoncé’s “Lion King” song “Spirit” entered the market Wednesday, and it is quickly finding resonance with US music fans.

As of press time at 1:40PM ET, it holds the #3 position on the all-genre US iTunes sales chart. With momentum on its side, it obviously has a chance of moving higher in the coming hours.

As things stand, only Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (featuring Billy Ray Cyrus)” and Post Malone’s “Goodbyes (featuring Young Thug)” are selling at a faster pace.

“Spirit” appears on the Beyonce-curated “The Lion King: The Gift” album, which is due July 19.
