With anticipation building for Disney’s live action remake of their classic animated film ‘Beauty and the Beast’ (in theaters March 17), a lens is being placed on its title track revamped by Ariana Grande and John Legend.
Big shoes to fill for Legend and Grande as the tune’s original version sung by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson not only made a huge splash on the Hot 100, but also earned an Academy Award.
Fans keen to find out if they did the soaring number justice are invited to their first full listen inside. Be our guest…
While Ariana and John sound heavenly together, why does the instrumental track sound like some karaoke sh*t? Yeah, we’ll forever prefer the Celine and Peabo version to this, we must give credit where it is due.
The pairing, though odd, sound great and makes us wonder how they’d fare on an original ballad.
