Ariana Grande and John Legend have recorded the title track for the 2017 Beauty and the Beast movie. We’re guessing this version is going to play while the closing credits are rolling … but we shall see.
After hearing part of the new duet in the third and final trailer of Beauty and the Beast earlier this week, Ariana Grande and John Legend finally debut the full version of their rendition of the main theme “Beauty And The Beast.”
Ariana Grande and John Legend‘s remake version was produced by Ron Fair.
In the original Disney animated film, Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson performed “Beauty and the Beast” for the film’s soundtrack and won the Grammy, Golden Globe and the Oscar.
“Stepping into the shoes of an Oscar- and Grammy Award-winning classic is not small potatoes,” producer Ron Fair said in a statement. “But with today’s two greatest 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.”
