Beauty and the Beast’s Title Track to Be Performed by Ariana Grande and John Legend


Disney’s upcoming live-action film adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is bringing out the heavyweights, not just in the cast itself but also in its soundtrack – according to a recent announcement, Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum selling artist Ariana Grande and 10 time Grammy and Oscar winning singer/songwriter John Legend will be performing the soundtrack to the film.

The duo will provide their own version of the enchanting ballad originally performed by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson. The new version will be produced by Grammy-winning veteran Ron Fair, whose music career spans 37 years as a major-label record company leader and accomplished producer, arranger, recording engineer and musical director. Fair was brought in to produce by Disney’s president of Music & Soundtracks, Mitchell Leib, who also brought Grande and Legend to the project. The history of collaboration between Leib and Fair in film music goes back to the highly-successful Pretty Woman soundtrack. “Ron was the first and only choice to make this particular record,” says Leib. “No one is a better vocal producer and he also has a great understanding of the filmmaking dynamic.”

As part of the announcement, Disney also unveiled a brand new TV spot for Beauty and the Beast, featuring lead star Emma Watson herself performing “Belle” for the film. You can check it out below:
