I am highly anticipating the live action movie of Beauty and the Beast. Belle is one of my favorite Disney princesses because she’s strong and she didn’t start the moving looking for somebody to love.
So, to keep up with the hype, Disney has released the Beauty and the Beast theme song sung by Ariana Grande and John Legend.
What can I say?
I have no qualms with Ariana and John Legend. They’re two great singers. The version has become very modern.
I still loved the original. There is magic in the quality of not having to belt everything out as opposed to what Ariana and John did. It made the moment of the ‘ball’ so special, so romantic, so heartfelt, so climactic and so real.
A story was unfolding in that dance. Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson told it very well.
If you’re missing the original, here it is.
