As if we needed another reason to get excited for the live action adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson…
Now it’s just been announced that the classic Beauty and the Beast song, which was originally recorded by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson, will be recorded by none other than Ariana Grande and John Legend.
The pair were obviously ecstatic at being given the opportunity to work on the movie – so much so that they both individually shared pictures of them in the recording studio on their social media accounts. Aww!
“Stepping into the shoes of an Oscar and Grammy Award-winning classic is not small potatoes,” said song producer Ron Fair.
“But with today’s two greatest plutonium [sic] singers — John Legend and Ariana Grande — we are bringing the song back with a new school-old school fresh treatment that shows the soulfulness and power of what a great melody and lyric can inspire.”
We cannot wait to see what two of the hottest musicians of 2017 will bring to one of our favourite films of all time.
Celine Dion is a tough act to follow, but we have complete and utter faith in Ari and John.
