Ariana Grande and John Legend are teaming up to record Beauty and the Beast’s theme song of the same name for the upcoming Disney live-action film.
The live-action Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as Beauty and the Beast, respectively. Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald and Emma Thompson voice the film’s inanimate characters. Kevin Kline stars as Belle’s father, Luke Evans plays Gaston and Gad appears as sidekick Le Fou. It hits theaters March 17.
Grande teased the recording session on Tuesday, posting a photo to Instagram with a wilting rose emoji — a nod to the film’s Enchanted Rose.
The singer will join vocal cords with Grammy winner John Legend to record the title tune for Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson as the exceptionally well-read princess Belle and Dan Stevens as the exceptionally well-groomed beast, Beast.
The song, produced by veteran producer Ron Fair, will be featured in the film itself and will headline the soundtrack, which includes new recordings of the original movie score (by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman) as well as three new songs written by Menken and Tim Rice.
Dave Meyers will direct the subsequent music video featuring Grande and Legend.
