After getting a sneak peak of their duet on 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” – and it’s beautiful!
The 23-year-old singer and John‘s remake version was produced by Ron Fair, while director Dave Meyers took on the music video, which is set to premiere later this month.
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.”
