You may have seen a mysterious Instagram post of Ariana Grande in the recording studio recently:
Well, it’s official! Ariana Grande and John Legend are recording an all-new version of “Beauty and the Beast” for the upcoming live-action adaptation of the film! You may remember the duet as it was originally performed by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson in 1991—it’s one of the most iconic and timeless movie tracks ever!
Written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, “Beauty and the Beast” won an Academy Award®, a Golden Globe® and a GRAMMY Award in 1991. The new soundtrack, including three new songs written by Alan Menken and Tim Rice, will be released on March 10, 2017. You can pre-order it now here.
We are so excited to hear the incredible vocals that Grande and Legend will undoubtedly bring to the table. As if we needed any more reasons to see this movie!
